Bam made a nice block, but he would be home fishing for weeks without a lead guard/wing like Butler to lead the team. Bam is a wonderful complementary player, but the Heat are nowhere without Jimmy.
Bam Adebayo 3.06 DRPM (#11) - Age 22
Wendell Carter 2.43 DRPM (#26) - Age 20
Bam Adebayo 2.06 meters
Wendell Carter 2.06 meters
What Bam does is no different from what Wendell does when healthy. They're both just as impactful defensively. Wendell isn't our core problem, he just needs to be healthy and develop. Focus on fixing Wendell rather than adding a 2nd Wendell with our #4 pick.
I agree. I think WCJ can be as good as Bam. The problem is he needs to stay healthy. It’s just frustrating that he was always out with an injury. Hopefully being under a new regime will help his game improve.
I don't think that WCJ can become as good as Bam - Bam is more fluid and bouncier athlete.
In terms of to Wiseman or not, that goes down to evaluations of Wiseman's relative upside - but he strikes me as at least as quick as Carter, both straight line and laterally, with better hands, better touch, more fluid movement, and a significant size advantage.
Carter reminds me a lot of Antonio Davis - who was a darn good player and even made one all-star game, but who was a bruiser in a different era. Yeah, Carter's younger than Antonio coming in, and produced more in terms of volume (though much more similar per36, and taking the higher scoring era into account) than Davis... but the style of player, and possibly the overall ceiling, isn't in that "one all star game or so in his career" range - at least in terms of where he most likely ends up at. Wiseman *potentially* is a perennial all star --- although I don't see him as a generational talent / superstar level player. But not sure there is one in this draft - Antonio Edwards probably has the best chance of being that.
