Scouting Report
Assets: An above-average all-round player who does a nice job setting up his teammates and defending. Long of limb, athletic, and very versatile (capable of starting at small forward and both guard spots). A solid passer who takes care of the ball. Usually hits his free throws.
Flaws: Has never been the rebounder he could be. Has seen his shooting percentage drop off significantly with age, and has become fairly inconsistent overall (in part because he's prone to injuries). Has become more of a role player with age.
Career Potential: Streaky but above-average swingman (when healthy).
