NBA DRAFT ANALYSIS:
Honorable Mention All-SEC as a sophomore...Decided to forgo his final two
seasons to enter this draft...Showed flashes of brilliance while at Kentucky
but also disappeared at times...A tremendously versatile performer who can
score, pass and rebound...Handles the ball with ease and can dish on the
run...Can get to the rim with regularity and can score in traffic...Seems to
play sometimes with reckless abandon and needs to gain a better understanding
of the game...A decent shooter who needs develop a more consistent outside
shot...Not a complete product right now but has the ability to be special.
