6'3" combo guard city with 6'7" wingspan. Was a good college player at Duke it looks like.

He's an undersized SG, or a PG that is a scorer and not a passer.

Maybe a Frank Jackson/Killian back court would be good. Killian can guard SG with his size.

he athleticism and skill but didn't really love his game coming out of college. not very versatile/high IQ.

that said, not a bad flier on a two-way contract.

We already picked a winning ticket (Christian Wood), and we threw it away :banghead:

I like the Frank Jackson sign, seems like he has potential.

At a glance it seemed redundant with Saben Lee. In reality, an experienced developing backup PG is a good value depth pickup in anticipation of a Rose trade. Lee might need another season before he can contribute.

With two way players practicing and traveling with the team this season he should become familiar quickly. The more young assets the better.

Sure why not. He's only 22 and could have some untapped potential. Hopefully he continues to develop his jumper (was known as a good shooter in college?) as his 3 point percentages look underwhelming. Who knows maybe he can be a rotation player someday...

I like the signing but with no G-League for the Pistons. It will be hard for him to improve. He lacks shooting ability. I’m not seeing much else besides S. Johnson 2.0 at this stage.

Another dude under 23 on the roster...

Another opportunity to find a role player for down the line

I'd like to see him get regular minutes in the PG rotation. If he has Casey's trust we'll get to see what he can do.

He is talents, but he is an undersized SG. He was the only guy playing with energy in our 2nd unity so he deserved his minutes tonight.
