It's interesting reading this and given the defensive guys you will have in Jrue, Ball and Zion, that he would want to add a shooter but questions Garland because of his defense. Seems that backcourt is one that could handle it. I could see a team like ours hesitating because of that.
I think I like Hunter the most for fit on the Pelicans....just a versatile defender but great shooter next to him....could even go 4/5 in small ball at times.
I mean you gotta go BPA.
By history of similar height, age, style, college, production that guy would be Culver
By what I've seen on tape that'd be Hunter
By the direction the game is going and visual pop that'd be Garland
really hard choice. I think they all fit fine longterm. But Culver is probably the worst fit. In any case, I hope they dont trade out.
Well yeah, BPA is always easy for people to say, but unless it's obvious it's in the eye of the beholder. Plus, you have one and done guys against multiple year guys...where were Hunter and Culver ranked after their first years? Not high. Not that it should matter.
I think it is all so close that it comes down to fit. Now if you did want to trade Lonzo and/or Ingram for sharp shooters, Culver seems like the perfect back court guy with Jrue. That tweet goes on with more discussion like trading down and adding Goga Bitadze as a pick/pop floor spacing option with Zion and also he mentions trading Jrue to the Bulls for Porter and 7 and taking White there....I guess after taking Culver at 4...so you'd have Culver, White and Ball rotating in the back court, or in sall ball Culver could play 3.
