Scouting Report on Charles Matthews

by Eric Bossi - 09/26/2013
An explosive guard, he's particularly good working along either baseline. Gets out in transition and is an above the rim finisher when he wants. Doesn't fully trust his jumper just yet and will be a load with more confidence in that and his handle. Very alert passer and potential to be a big time defender.
