He's just never been an elite rebounder at any level. So I really don't expect it to happen now that he's in the NBA. I think he's got the potential to be one of the best backup forwards in the league, who can spot start when needed. But it's probably a bad thing if our eventual Dray replacement is Paschall. Still an amazing draft pick.
It's confounding that he doesn't rebound well. He clearly has a good motor, he tries hard on defense and he's got the body to rebound. I wonder if it's just never been something he focuses on. It's funny (and annoying) to hear normies and idiots like Reggie Miller make the baby Draymond comparison. He's nothing like that. But Paschall could very well become Corey Maggette with better court vision and a willingness to move the ball around. That's a super valuable bench piece.
Paschall is a bench scoring 4. We might be able to run some offense around him with the bench units but I wouldn’t think of him as an end of the game type player.
