I don't know, if he can't shoot that's a hard cap on what he can become as a pro. He only shot 39% for his college career and is currently shooting 10% (1-10) in the NBA. I know, small sample size and all, but I don't know where the optimism is coming from. I've seen nothing that gives me hope his shot will come around, in fact many of his shots have been really ugly, clanking bricks or nearly missing the rim entirely. But it's early, hopefully his shot starts dropping more, that will open everything up for him.
On the plus side, he does show a good feel for the game and a certain craftiness working inside, which is good because his athleticism is mediocre at best. He had a nice move ending in a floater last night that unfortunately didn't go down, but it was a bit of a Curryesque flair. Seems to be pretty good finding the right guy in the right place on the break. I also saw some ability to hesitate and change speeds to keep the defense off balance.
