Deonta is a strong and athletic wing. The lefty is explosive and tends to hunt dunks on the offensive end. He is a slasher that is devastating in transition. He is a streaky shooter with range to about 17 feet. Most of his points come inside 10 feet as he is too strong and athletic to keep out of the paint. Burton plays above the rim and is an excellent rebounder for his position.
Deonta is a streaky shooter that needs to improve his accuracy and range. The main part of his game is the dunk and that needs to change over time. Burton is very left handed and needs to improve his game using his off hand. He needs to improve defensively but is strong and athletic and should improve as his game matures. Basically, he needs more versatility to his game.
Burton is one of the most powerful and explosive players in the 2013 class. He's a very good prospect that simply needs to improve his skill base in order to realize his enormous potential.
