The draft podcast I listened to and ESPB questioned his shot.

Said he was bad outside of 3 where he wasn't great

he wasn't. he shot 32% from three last season and his mid range and his free throw needs work. 

I called him Diet Ben Simmons for a reason.

He is not even gonna play 10mpg in his rookie season. His shot efficiency is least of my worries.


He may play more if the people in front of him happen to be traded

I haven't seen him play a whole lot but every time I've seen him play he was pretty good from 3. Watch the combine game if you can, all he took was jumpers.

I think kuzma is a good fit

It actually is a perfect indicator of what pelinka and magic want to accomplish

They 100% believe in luke as coach and are building a roster around his plans

Tough, smart, solid athletes who play defense and can shoot

He was killing in the combine. Shot looked good, rebounded and ran the floor.

 

I am happy they are taking a look at PJ Dozier as well

Yeah Dozier had an amazing alley oop at the combine too if anyone can find it.

Never seen him play before. I trust Ryan though, he's been fire.

Sounds a lot like what Spurs franchise did with Pop.

He's already a better shooter than Nance and Randle and he's an energy guy.  If the rebounding and ball handling translates he's going to get minutes.

Lol. Let's see.

Bigs usually struggle early. Doubtful he can supplant a healthy Ju or LNjr

I don't know much about him, but after watching a bunch of tape on him he seems like the type of PF we've been trying to draft recently as far as being a player who can grab a board and lead the break. Also looks like an ideal running mate for Lonzo as he is able to get out in transition, and excels at moving without the ball. Right now I see him as an Al-Farouq Aminu type player. 


Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

Good form on his shot.  Has improved since his freshman year (I believe).

 

I think we have all wanted better outside shooting from our BIGs.  Let's hope he's the answer.

Good luck Swaggy! I hated the guy at first but he really turned it around last season.
