What I do like about Roby is that his body do look NBA ready. Decent defense, his passing and his team play. With that said Im pretty sure RC will have him on the roster
I wonder if there're some fans having actually watched the whole game but instead only looking at the highlight. Roby can run and jump for sure. Steals and blocks are indication of that. But this alone doesn't make Roby a good defender. Roby has trouble to make decisions on switch. More often than not, Roby is out of position for shot blocking and rebounding. And Roby is not as good as advertised defensively. Defending 1-5 in college doesn't mean defend well. The footspeed against quicker player is still an unfavorable mismatch. Not to mention that Roby cannot take on more bulky player. In game 1, Roby is a step low and things look as if Roby doesn't want the content in paint and allowed a lot of opened 3 at the corner.
For the passing, it is also an area I am not pleased with. The assist and turnover ratio is poor. Roby has a nice handle especially going one on one in paint. But Roby has trouble passing out of the post. It results in a lot of unnecessary turnover.
Surely, Kostas looks more promosing and ready than Roby. At least, Kostas gets to the right spot to challenge layups in paint most of the time.
