Great Budget PG

Written by daddyalmighty

My team is pretty bad so I wanted to shake it up and get someone exciting. I haven't tested him out live yet, but he showed great promise in domination. He's crazy athletic and has a super fast release from three. This review is not the most informed as a precaution, but seeing as he was unreviewed I figured that any info would be a plus.

Bought for: ~5,000 mt


  • Athleticism: Fast with the ball and can finish over most when he gets a head of steam
  • Threes: One of the quickest releases I've seen, tough to get used to but once you do he hits a lot
  • Playmaking: Doesn't lose the ball and throws dimes everywhere
  • Finishing Inside: Doesn't miss much on the interior
  • Defense: Has the athleticism to guard anyone in his height range


He's 6'3", so the man can find himself getting overpowered by bigger guards and certainly can't guard a point forward, so you just have to know what you're up against.

Recommended Strategy: If you have a bad team like me, he's a totally viable to start at the one, especially if you're playing other teams with smaller guards. If you have a good team, I'd use him as the primary ball handler off the bench, because his playmaking combined with shooting + explosiveness makes him worth it.

Real Life Comps: Better shooting Russ/John Wall, Zach Lavine with playmaking ability

Use if: You're looking for a do it all PG

Don't use if: Height is a big factor for you

Bottom Line: One of the cheapest amy players on the market, definitely worth the pickup for worse teams

    I run him at the 2 and found that he plays a lot better. See if that works for you. He gets open way more often and is deadly on the break


    do you not find height to be an issue with him at the 2?


    nope, he's a solid jumper and most people run with shooting over height so he's a decent compromise for his slashing ability
