NBA ROLE: HIGHLY SKILLED SHOT-CREATOR

 

A captivating scorer & playmaker, Trae Young is up now in ATL; low dribble, crazy shake - smooth, varied gathers* (into Js); extremely confident shooter: Trae possesses incredible, deep range, won't hesitate to fire w/ a hand in his face, around screens, off-balance, off the bounce; hesitates well when attacking, lots of head fakes, blows right after quick size ups; should thrive w/ any sort of lack of attn; dynamic, tough to stay in front of - can score regardless of defensive pressure; scrappy defender in the league? lacks size, must make up for it w/ energy and effort; needs to embrace playing some off-ball, contribute as a spot shooter; must learn to balance shot selection, get teammates involved & avoid settling for deep and/or contested triples; natural, instinctive distributor: Trae's always looking for teammates in transition; needs to consistently draw fouls, finish better thru contact - adding strength is a priority; ATL’s go-guy, is Trae ready to lead a playoff push?
