    Weak shooter. More of a scorer

    When given the choice he dunks with his left, he's left handed. Also draftexpress has mentioned that he needs to work on his right hand because it's a little weak. He's a southpaw.

    love this move. has the potential to usurp pat bev at the PG spot. he can't shoot (yet), but does everything else well. great all-around player with elite defense in college.

    Uh... yeah. He can sign five more free agents and get five more free draft picks. GENIUS!

    He could be a much better version of Beverley if he ever learned how to shoot.

    Kid can be a rotation player on the current team. Needs some NBADL seasoning. Biggest thing he needs to work on is his outside shot but he can penetrate, play the passing lanes, finish and rebound.

    So he's like an older, more raw, PG version of KJ McDaniels? Is that fair?
