Summary:

George De Paula is a young, athletic combo guard that has the skills to play either backcourt position.  He has a wide array of skills, but he will need to improve his jump shot, and he can still be mistake on occasion.

​In addition, his play was perhaps inconsistent at best at Hoops Summit as well as at the 2015 Chicago combine.  De Paula has the talent and upside to be a good player in the NBA, but he will need to find a way to put his skills altogether to reach that goal.
