WELLCOME MY PRECIOUS....I HEAR YOU LIKE RINGS?!

We got an elite athlete, I can't find the video but there's evidence out there he can shoot the 3 too.



Has all the tools, let's see what we can shape him into.

Needs to improve ft, odlycan shoot the 3 a little.

Decent passer, run the floor, rebound decent, defends, quick feet to switch and stay with guards, should fit well to give bam a breather

Ok big news to me -

Apparently Precious only started playing basketball 6 years ago

That is INSANE.

It means his improvement curve can spike a lot higher then a "normal" player his age. also means we should expect some rawness.

Sky's the limit.

Cannot stress enough how perfect of a fit he is.

This is an awesome day for the culture

Need a full draft profile please.

Only started playing ball 6 years ago gives me a lot of hope.

Based on that video, which is all I have seen of him, it makes me want Miami to sign Ibaka even more -- between Ibaka and Bam, Precious would have two guys with similiar skillsets to his that could be mentors for him. Hearing he has only played for 6 years doesn't seem shocking after watching the video -- just about everything seemed to be dunks on p&r or just being near the rim and basically nothing came out of the post.

He hit a few outside shots without hesitating, which was good to see. He seems to have decent hands and he can dribble well enough to get to the rim from 18-20ft and had some very nice, creative finishes around the rim. He seems to lack strength, but nothing surprising when you're talking about a 19 year old. I went back and watched a video of Bam in college and Bam was definitely more NBA-ready (much stronger, more court awareness, bette feel for the game, some post moves) coming out of college. Precious definitely has upside, but is probably 2-3 years from contributing. Maybe best-case scenario is he ends up being Josh Smith, Jerami Grant; worst-case maybe Stacey Augmon or Dwight Powell.

Seems like as good of a pick as you could ask for at 20.

Honestly he looks like he may have more raw athleticism than Bam.

Another thing to note, he’s 21 years old (just turned 21 in September), so he’s a slightly older rookie.

I don’t want to hype him up too much just yet, but he could develop into a Siakam type talent next to Bam.

Siakam is the best comp I could think of too, If he really develops. A more defensive version of Siakam I would say.

I think people underrate his handle, at times he looks more like a big wing then a PF/C. He can really drive and penetrate, he can pull up too and he feels comfortable being aggressive with the ball.

Needs a lot of work but you already see the signs. I think his offense can be a lot more then being a roll man.

On defense, he's got very high steals + blocks rates - which are good indicators of a good defender. Also very high rebounding rate. Those metrics translate really well into the NBA.

Watching some video. Despite the percentages, PA has nice form on his shot. I could easily see that turning around for him. He also has large hands. He had a few plays I saw where he saved a bad pass or one handed a pass due to those massive mitts.
