Scouting Report: A gifted guard with a great feel for the game. Can get any shot he wants and has great shot efficiency. Charismatic player with the imagination and mindset to become a standout PG at the NBA level , he is very special. Riley was the best scorer in France in 2019/20 season. He was the underdog for years and this gave him the gift of mamba mentality. A facilitator who shows the ability to make those around him better.  Great vision and passing skills. Great burst. Has the blow by speed to get past defenders off the dribble.  Good decision maker. Looks to make the right play instead of always trying to dazzle. Doesn’t force shots or overdribble (improved this a lot in France). Excellent shooter with the ability to get shots within the flow of the offense.  Jumpshot has great form. Has range out to NBA three. Good one on one skills. Can pull up off the dribble. And make it. Every time. A strong finisher exhibiting good body control. Ambidextrous with the dribble, showing impressive ability to go to the left and finish with his off hand. Has excellent ball handling ability with a nasty crossover. High motor kid who gets strong reviews for his character and work ethic. Very efficient shooter (over 40% 3pts, close to 90% FT ). Solid defender with adequate size. Gets low, fundamental, doesn’t gamble too often. Plays the passing lanes well.
