that wasn't a very impressive highlight video, I want to see a variety of shots, dribbles, dunks, defense in a highlight video. That video showed the same 4 plays over and over..... I havnt really watched much Indiana yet this season so I wont say anything about this kid yet
That's why I linked his stats and the video from Jay Bilas. Maybe check that out and make a comment.

He looks like a athlete that can take advantage at a college level who slashes and scores at the rim. Players that score from outside don't shoot 64% from the field. Sounds like a lot of dunks and layups. Those are plays that wont come easy at the next level where every team is full of elite athletes. This also does not fit the needs of the Bobcats which is a post scorer (Big Man) and a pure scorer/shooter at the 2 guard.
His 1st 2 seasons he only took 26 and 48 three point attempts and shot a dismal 20% and 30% at that rate with a shorter 3pt line than the NBA plays at.
The assist/steals/rebounds numbers are good, but those are hustle plays. I value that more than the average scout but those attributes can be found in many players and definitely in the 2nd round.
That being said he is shooting 51% from 3 this yr and has taken 37 shots from behind the arc so far. While that is still a small sample size it appears he has improved and is willing to shoot outside more. Its still iffy for me since its not hard to find a (Gerald Green) type play that he appears to be solely off his statistical numbers.
At this point I would still like to add both 1st round picks towards big men positions. I am still waiting to evaluate most of the prospects at the Bigs and shabazz and mclemore. I have been hammered with high school football signing day but all that ends here this week so I can start looking at the players in more depth for NBA/NFL drafts.

Meh. I would rather get a guy like CJ McCollum who can score in a variety of different ways with our second 1st round pick.
Smart move a 6'3 shooting guard.
