I think he's going to be a fine offensive player at this level. I know his jumper still needs a lot of work, especially off the dribble, but in the league, if you can beat people off the dribble, you already have a leg up since teams primarily play man defense (and sometimes lazy at that).
I think Philadelphia will be better putting him at point slowly, and letting him evolve.
I was able to watch thanks to a free first week of the NBA pass.
He looked good and at times it seemed like the 76ers were letting him run things.It won't be long before he's a top NBA player imo. Guys his size that can handle the point,get good penetration while being a threat to score or pass the ball along with playing good defense will always become stars as long as they can shoot from the outside at a average rate.He's likely to be the complete package.
We'll see how far that takes him.As long as the desire is there and he can stay healthy the sky is the limit.
