I would love for them to gamble on Wiseman being the next Embiid but he could easily be Jaret allen his whole career. Same goes for Edwards he could be Jimmy Butler or he could be nothing more than Norman Powell but at least the floor is reasonable.
Ball has no real comp and i think it keeps him polarizing but unless those decisions on and off court are a lot better as a adult which i dont trust he will not only be a flight risk his odds of working match Johnny football.
Hayes is interesting if Garland is outgoing because i think he can become a decent defensive player...but he might never be and rarely uses his right hand so his versatility as a finisher is ltd until he does.
Personally think Sexton showed so much in those few games under jb as a distributor he really should be the starting pg going forward and if they draft a guard it should be an off ball defender that can shoot like Vassell unless they think Kpj cant handle defending 3s. I think kpj is more than capable as a sf or sg with his iso ability.
With his length, what do you think of Vassell defeding 3's?
yeah 6'10" isnt great but his awareness and speed should make him more than capable on switches. imo his offensive arsenol is also a little underrated given he moves the ball really well as a secondary handler and that high release is golden.
It's longer than KPJ, though only by 1 inch, and he's about 2 inches taller than KPJ. Granted KPJ is thicker and it's something that Vassell will need to work on, but I think between the two of them they could easily work defending the 2/3. I've actually been coming around to Vassell more and more as an option for the Cavs. Granted I still prefer Avdija, but that's because I think his overall skillset and work ethic could be a great fit for this team with his ability to distribute, rebound, defend, and score but also not needing to have the ball in his hands due to a high BBIQ.
