“He’s one of the best point guards in the country at running a team and setting up his teammates. He’s a student of the game and when it comes to handling the ball or facing pressure, he does so with maturity and purpose. What separates him from others is his high-assist [to] low-turnover ratio. He’s the ultimate point guard, whether playing an up-tempo pace or in the half-court. He’s a pass-first player, but not a pass-only point guard.”
