Trey has some nice qualities. Seems like a quality person. Has deep NBA shooting range. Likes to take and can make clutch/end of game shots.

Now the not so good. He is not really that great of a passer/setup man for his team mates. Shoots too much (especially considering his poor FG%). Shoots outside waaaaaaaaaaay too much and almost rarely ever gets in the paint to break down the defense. Rarely ever draws fouls or gets to the free throw line. He still continues to struggle because of his size which probably contributes to his problems getting into the paint and getting to the free throw line.

Gaping holes in his game. Yes I understand he is a rookie but these shoot-first/scoring PGs are not going to take this team anywhere. Devin Harris, Mo Williams, and now Trey.

This team really needs a better distributor of the ball....Favors in particular could be better offensively if he had some better setup.
