Never watched him much.

How is his lateral quickness and handle? Does he have a post game? Is he a Quentin Richardson type?

this statement from four months ago still holds

he's kinda slow laterally. maybe it'd improve if he got into better shape, but it looks like that is just his body type. i'd be more concerned about his effort defensively. he can look downright harden-esque at times on defense. he's a relaxed player, but that isn't exactly a good trait to have on defense. his handle is a better than q-rich's. he's got those rhythm crosses that he can use to create his own shot, but he doesn't use his handle enough to get past his man for drives in the halfcourt.
i haven't seen him post up much, but he certainly has the body type to do so.
