2002 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Owns a quick first step which allows him to get good penetration to the basket for easy lay-ups ... Defensively he gets easy steals due to his long arms and quick hands ... Very good at creating scoring opportunities for himself as he can score in a variety of ways ... Excellent rebounder at his position thanks to his longs arms ... His perimeter game has improved to the point that he is a threat to hit jumpers from mid-range out to the 3-point line ... Excellent finisher in the open court where he can make some impressive dunks ... Unselfish as he doesn’t try to be a ball hog ... Explosive as a scorer as he is capable of putting up some nice numbers ... Throws off defenders who play him for the drive by shooting the quick pull-up jumper ... Semi athletic player who is a decent leaper ...

Weakness: Shooting mechanics need to worked on as he doesn’t fully extend on his release instead he seems to flick it ... Defensively he has good anticipation skills but lacks solid defensive footwork to be a defensive standout ... Upper body strength is lacking which is one of the reasons why he struggles finishing when contact occurs on the drive ... While he has improved as a 3-point shooter he is still very streaky from the outside ... Doesn't seem all that comfortable driving to the right side of the basket ... Ball handling while decent could stand to be upgraded ... Shot selection is kind of questionable doesn’t really know what his limits are yet and seems to think every shot is a good one …
