Good shooting stroke. In season 2018/19 had 40% for three points. Had also impressive 1.2 PPP on attacking closeouts pull up jumpers. Good from standstill, quick trigger vs pressure. 

Can attack closeouts. Plays above the rim. Has solid physical tools. Makes weak side cuts, at times can keep the plays alive. Can crash defensive glass and push. Loves to play coast to coast. Shows all his physical tools in open court game. 

Good defensive tools. Can cover ground, has good footwork. Quick twitch. Alter jumpers. Gives effort as on ball defender. Solid post up defense as well. Can protect the rim a bit. Can force turnovers. 



Not best creator with the ball.Better plays off the ball. Averaged 1.8 TOVs per game. At times can run in traffic without the plan. Doesn’t turn the corner. Average decision making and shot selection.  Has great shooting stroke and good season behind him. Anyhow some red flags happened in near past in terms of his shooting. Still needs to prove he is pure shooter for top level teams. 

Solid defender but just at times can lose focus and have poor decision making in defense. Might struggle vs stronger and bigger forward on low post.
