SF Ht: 198cm Wt: 85kg DOB: 6/11/1997
An emotional leader on the court. A very talented player that can create for others and himself. Always a main focus of opposing defenses and can score in a variety of ways by slashing to the rim or pulling up with a consistent mid range jumper. An excellent athlete who is able to carry his team in stretches. Very agile with great body control, allowing him to take contact while being able to concentrate on finishing strong. Plays with a high basketball IQ and is very comfortable playing either in a half court set but excels in transition. Sees the floor very well and can find his teammates at the right time. Can be a very dominating personality in the open floor and finishes well over the rim in transition if he is not leading the break. Active on the glass and can really be a factor keeping the ball alive. Great defensive intensity possessing an enormous wing span allowing him to jump the passing lanes and challenge all shots. Strong enough to give some relief minutes at PF if needed.
