Superior combo guard with amazing speed, quickness and athleticism. Unstoppable scorer who also likes to assist his teammates due to great courtvision. Offensively handles and shoots the ball well, can penetrate with power and finish with lay-up or mid-range jumper. Consistent shooter from 3PT arc with extremely quick release. Can easily create his own shot but also very efficient with coming of the ball screens. Player with strong leadership qualities.
