Summary

Scoota is electric in the open court, he has the ability to retrieve a rebound, push it in transition and finish over the top of bigger defenders. He has a quick first step which keeps defenders off balance, which allows him to live in the paint.  He can finish with an array of runners, floaters and pull-up jumpers in the lane. He has quick hands (huge hands) on the defensive end, both on and off the ball. He does need to work on his outside shot off the catch and off the dribble. He also needs to work on staying at home on the defensive end, as he often gambles too much. And I would like to see him look to create shots for his teammates, as much as he breaks down the defense, he misses a lot of wide-open teammates on the perimeter.
