Creativity in Close Quarters
Already a prime offensive weapon for his grassroots team, Peat displays flexibility working in offensive systems with other stars present. Due to playing within the smaller confines of a stout offensive cast, he has already developed the ability to read the floor and establish effective starting position to receive the ball. As a result of this keen surveillance on Peat’s end, he’s comfortably adapted his offensive game for any position on the court.
While Peat also possesses an arsenal of traits to score well on the move, his knack for maneuvering crowded spaces may top them all. With the ball in his hands Peat processes player movement and play development at a high rate, allowing for timely initiation of his moves. His patience in these situations immediately heightens his ability to predict defensive rotations and effectively navigate traffic off-the-dribble.
His strong, explosive first step reduces space to his man increasing the freedom and time to mentally plan out his moves before defenders recover back into the play. Opposing teams mistakenly grant him the opportunity to play 1v1 against his primary defenders too often. This results in Peat making his way downhill until too much ground has been gained for effective rotational recovery to adequately contest his shots.
Once his man begins to body him and exhibit more physicality, Peat turns on the quick agility moves (spins off defenders, step-backs, crossovers, etc) to stay one step ahead and finish plays.
