Not a smooth shooter but posses natural scoring instincts. Streaky shooter one he is hot can be dangerous behind the arc. Anyhow not the most consistent shooter both in catch&shoot and pull up situations. Can create his own shoot but as mentioned before lacks shooting consistency. Sometimes can have trouble finishing around the rim once he is defended by stronger defender. Can be very careless with the ball and have poor decision making. On last FIBA U20 averaged 1.9 TO's on 15 minutes playing time. Can lack his defensive focus since he can lose it form time to time.
