Draft Notes

A consummate point guard who makes great decisions with the ball, can handle against pressure and know when to look to score.

Doesn’t have an ideal frame for the NBA game, with a short wingspan and average height for position but his basketball IQ and competitive fire make up for it.

Sees the play before it happens and is great at finding teammates with perfect passes.

Can get his own shot and shows promise as an outside shooter (although he struggled a bit at Arizona hitting only 32.7% from downtown).

Struggles to finish in the paint and against length.
