Tyrese Haliburton had a quietly impressive freshman season on a talented Iowa State where he put himself on NBA scouts radars due to his passing ability, outstanding decision making and his 43% shooting from deep..


Haliburton is the epitome of a game manager that makes good decisions and takes excellent care of the ball. ln 2018-19 he dished out 125 assists and only 28 turnovers. Usually when you see a point guard with a crazy high assist to turnover ratio like Haliburton's its because he does not take risks and plays conservative. Listed at 6'7, Haliburton has the ability to see over defenders and has a knack for whipping flashy cross court passes to open shooters in the corner.

He reminds me of Lonzo Ball with his size and passing instincts and has some of the same question marks about his game. 67% of his shots were from behind the 3 point line and the only other way he scored as a freshman was in transition. He also does not show much game off or offensive creativity off the bounce.
