He can be our James Harden version from last years' Thunder team.
Sure. If James Harden was an inefficient ballhog.
I would assume a 6'6' PG would be able to guard effectively. Guess not. All I know is that he has crazy handles and drives in for all of his points. I never watched him really play but I heard he's been in decline because of injury and lack of development.
Tyreke is not and never has been a PG. He can't run an offense.
Thats why i said we need guys to stretch the floor. Tyreke does not stretch the floor. Obviously i know tyreke can penetrate, but remember the will be clogged with Dwight. Read comments from Kings fans. Tyreke needs to be the primary ball handler on the team to be effective. Ever since he's been playing off the ball he has not been as effective. Im not saying hes not a good player, just might not be the right fit for this team...and develop a jump shot huh? How long are we supposed to wait for that?
Props for being the only person in this thread who knows what they're talking about.
Tyreke is as bad a fit as any I can imagine on this Laker squad. He has tunnel vision, he can't run an offense, he can't shoot, he needs the ball to be effective, he struggles playing off the ball and he struggles to co-exist with other high-volume scorers (He struggled to play off Marcus Thornton, how do you think he'll react to Kobe, lol)
Trading for him would be a massive risk. Not even a case of "High risk, High reward" more like "Super-mega high risk, good reward". Not to mention I can't think of a realistic trade. Kings don't want Pau (All that'll do is hinder JT and T-Rob's development while creating a logjam at the PF spot) or any scrubs from the end of the bench.
Give up on Tyreke. Rudy Gay would be a much better option.
