NBAdraft.net has a thread on him with some highlight videos. The guy said he compares to Dragic, though I can't see whether that holds water. He definitely has some Dragic-esque moves in the paint on those videos, but that's all I really saw. You can't tell things like his PG skills or even what the competition is like over there from videos like this.

Well, it seems like he plays for Lebanese powerhouse Al Riyadi, Which is all fine and good, but his stats are really underwhelming - 7.3 points, 3 assists. His scoring rates are pretty low as well.

For comparison sake, Fadi Al Khatib is still putting 21 points per game on that team, and he is 36 years old by now... Another notable Al Riyadi name is Jeremiah Massey, he is averaging 18 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists... And thats not prime Massey we are talking about...

So yeah, based purely on stats, not very impressive.
