Finishes well in and around the with runners & floaters (gets downhill in a hurry)
Decent shooting stroke in the mid-range
Good passer in PnR and drive & kick actions
Solid shooter from the 3pt line (35.0 season)
Active hands defensively – plays the passing lanes well (long arms)
Doesn’t play with great pace – always full speed, which leads to turnovers
Poor shot selection – takes wild shots in the lane
Must improve his handle – everything is straight line drives
Below avg athlete – gets his shot blocked often
Needs to get stronger – doesn’t take contact well in the lane
TyTy has good touch in and around the lane, which allows him to finish with an array of runners and floaters; he also has a decent stroke from the mid-range as well. He is a willing passer in PnR and drive & kick action. He needs to improve his pace of play as everything seems to be full speed; he also must work on his shot selection as he tends to force shots. He also is a below-average athlete, which is the cause for his shot getting blocked in the lane.

Washington impressed me with his ability to create shots and for his teammates, he also was great at creating himself using his quickness and ball handling. He did a good job getting into the lane finishes in traffic with runners and floaters. He pushed the ball in transition, which was the biggest advantage for the south team, he hustled on both ends, can shot it well both midrange and 3's.
Volume Shooting Analytics:
Washington has data significant enough to allow for an evaluation on his potential to become a successful volume shooter. This data suggests that Washington absolutely has volume shooting potential, ranking at 6th in the class among eligible shooters.
This data was created by AJ Wahl by ploting each game of a player's most recent season. The x-axis represents the amount of threes taken per minute, in order to normalize for minutes played. The y-axis is simply the player's three point percentage in that particular game. The line represents the trend between a player's three point volume, and their success. A upward slope means that a player gains efficiency as they shoot more often, and a downward slope means that a player loses efficiency the more shots they take. Note that 0.2 3PA/36 is roughly 7 3s, and 0.3 translates to 11 3s. Only players with an R^2 value above .04 were analyzed, to ensure that each player has at least some correlation between their attempts and their frequency.
