Watched some of his highlights and yep, thanks for coming, that is our pick if we keep it. His 3pt shooting% sucks but his free throw shooting is amazing, and his highlights show he can get there with range. Great finishing and another tenacious dog on D from the sounds of it. Dragic will probably get one big single year contract and we'll see what happens after that, but cheap guards in Nunn, Herro and Maxey if everything panned out to go with Butler and Duncan at wings leaves us the cap space to go after the right guys to pair with Bam in the front court.
I think the high level finishing, and defensive ability is what separates him from other prosepcts. He needs a bit of mechanical fine tuning on his long range shooting, but other than that, he's got some very nice tools. Needs to up his bball IQ as well, but that will come with reps.
