Two-way forward with top nine forward potential.
Originally, I wasn't very high on him because I didn't see much dynamic ability but as the game went on, he grew onto me. He was just good in all aspects of is game, and at times, he would pull a nifty move and make me think there's alot more to his game than just being reliable.
That said, I've only managed to catch 2 games of him so perhaps that isn't the best sample size to judge a player.
I think that's a pretty apt assessment. Very rarely does he "wow" you with his play. He's just.. solid. Very solid in fact, but nothing jumps out at you and screams top-six forward. It's those flashes of brilliance that kind of make it seem like there's more there.
