NBA Skill-Set Comparison: Ish Smith, D.J. Augustin
Best Case Comparison: Chris Paul
Strengths: Has "mamba" mentality on both ends of the floor. Dynamic scorer in transition, most effective in the pick-n-roll, shoots well enough from three to keep the defense honest (37.6%). Truly unique scoring talent from the point guard position. More than capable playmaker, stands beside Lonzo Ball as the most true "point guard" in the draft class. High ability to defend physically and competitively: active hands on and off the ball, can apply pressure without getting beat. Strong frame and wingspan
Weaknesses: Lack of size affects his ability to finish at the rim against length and to pass over the top of the defense. Showed a focus on scoring in college rather than passing. Could be limited defensively due to size and strength.
