RJ Hampton 

Post#1 » by THE J0KER » Fri Nov 20, 2020 6:08 am

Is RJ Hampton another Nuggets draft steal after we take Jokic at #42, Beasley at #19, Monte at #51, Porter at #14, Bol at #44...??

Talent and potential is obvious, the key question for me is how he will fit with Murray and Jokic.

Unless we trade off at least two of Barton, Harris, Morris, Dozier; I just don't see Hampton getting much playing time - this year. Now next year ... :D He just might be our SG of the future, unless Harris gets his shooting touch back. That just might make him the first guard off the bench.

Like Nnaji, RJ will need mins to gain confidence in this league. He was working with Mike Miller on his shooting, could Miller get a coaching job here ?? As for RJ, I feel he stays on the roster as we'll want to coach him up as much as possible.

Love the comments from Mike Miller, if Hampton can improve his shot and Malone can get him up to speed on defense he could be our long term replacement for Harris. Especially since it sounds like Hampton has grown to 6'6".

Realistically, we have RJ on a 2-yr development plan, he'll need to replace Harris at that point and step into the starting lineup. I can see if RJ does step up in the way we all hope, does Harris get re-signed or is he traded in the 21/22 season ?

I don't think we will know until after we see the progress of Hampton over the next 18 months, but I can see Harris signing a cheeper extension or being traded at the 21/22 trade deadline. Hampton has a lot of talent, and the way Mike Miller has gushed about him reminds me of the way he talked about Jokic all those years ago, but he has to fix his jumpshot and his defense before you can even think about letting Harris go.

An old picture but ironic in that they had this picture taken together and they will likely play together in the near future. Look how young RJ looks.
