He's below average with his handles. He's a runner and a jumper. I see him as a shorter poor mans Justin Anderson at this point. If we draft him, there's zero chance he starts this season. The kid needs a lot of work but definitely has the athletic ability to become a good one
I never mentioned him starting this year
Oh, ok. Figured he was starting considering every other player you listed is most likely a starter and you mentioned curry transitioning to the bench, while he only has one year left on his contract.
What do you see in Diallos game, other than athleticism, that makes him worthy of trading up to get him in the 1st rd? I don't see it.
I said by the time Diallo is ready to start it would be about time for Curry to transition to the bench .
As for why Diallo . If we can get a 18-20 Pick he has tremendous upside . If he goes back to Kentucky he's probably A Top 5-10 Pick next year so what's not to like about a Top 5-10 player that cost a 18-20 Pick . He could be a total bust or he could. E a total superstar Dallas needs a move like this where at Minimum they get a pretty good player for the next 4 years and ceiling is a absolute stud
