I even just looked up his profile on DraftExpress. He only shoots 46% inside the arc and his lack of explosiveness and skill inside makes him a relatively mediocre finisher on the inside, which I agree with. His primary asset will be as a shooter and will probably do very little facilitating at the NBA level.

Stats can only tell you so much, as someone who watched every second of his career at UK, I saw him finish many a tough shot. And again, he converted on fast breaks and drew and 1's constantly.

We'll have to agree to disagree, but I don't know how you could come to the conclusion he's a bad finisher if you watch him play alot. Maybe it's not a plus-skill, but in no way is he a poor finisher. He's very crafty.

As far the PG thing, I just threw that in there to show he definitely has some versatility in his game. I'm not expecting him to get PG minutes in the NBA, but that ability informs his game overall.
