Bailey is an athletic combo guard with high level physical tools. He already has the size, body and athleticism of an older player. Though he is relatively lean, he has some wiry strength and could easily pass for somebody who has been on a college campus for at least a year. Bailey is best making plays off the dribble and playing off ball screens who projects as a big and physical playmaker. When he gets into the lane, he's a clever finisher and a very alert and capable passer who does a good job of finding teammates for open jumpers. He isn't yet known as a prolific jump shooter, but he is more than capable from deep and does a good job of getting lift on his jumper and the release on his shot is pretty clean with good arc and backspin.
Where Bailey really shines, though, is in the open floor and playing in transition. He causes nightmares for defenders because they have to figure out how to keep him from the rim while also understanding that he will find teammates slashing to the cup too. He will finish lobs in style or he will simply dunk in your face. It is certainly a pick your poison situation once Bailey gets loose in the open floor with the ball in his hands and a full head of steam. Mick Cronin will loves tough guys who can bring it on both ends of the floor. Bailey's length, quickness, athleticism and instincts all lend themselves to playing at a high level on the defensive end as he is among the best perimeter defenders in his class.
