Great spot up shooter, can really spread the floor via spot ups. Takes around  3.5 threes per game always around 40% for 3 pts (Stats form Europe). Can pop after on ball screens. Smooth stroke.

Can post his man up. Wil finish either hand. Quick and mobile during his post up game. Can even roll after on ball screens. Covers position #4 and #5 in European basketball. Has good hands. Runs the floor really well great athleticism, can keep the plays alive.
Has solid court vision and shows some passing flashes. Can drive and kick or pass it when he is posting his man up.


Good defensive impact. Mobile has great footwork. Good on ball defender. Can protect the rim.  Good rebounder as well. Gives effort on defensive end of the court. 



Versatile but doesn’t create much form perimeter. More straight line driver. Struggles vs stronger bigs during post up game. A bit straight legs during post up game. Capable post up scorer but incontinent.   Good defender but loses focus at times. Labeled as low IQ player during his college times and NBA. In Europe showed some careless approach at times and as mentioned lack of focus.  A bit turnover prone. Due lack of focus will have unforced TOVs.
