He shot well from 3 in 2017-18 and shot well from 2 in 2018-2019. So, you magically put those together and he's a good shooter.

I'm OK with this, though I'd rather other players. It's not like they need another wing, so it was either a big or a pg.

Bender has a decent handle for a big.

no, no, no! Bender is a scratch-off lottery ticket. You don't even scratch it off to see what you got until the middle of the season.

This might be the most glowing review I've seen you give any move we've made this offseason. :lol:

I see him not too athletic, not too tough, with heavy feet. Decent shooting form.
I am a horrible judge of talent.
Tangent: I imagined Suki to be much more in shape than she appears.


Jokesters typically don't take things too seriously. Maybe that's why he has a motor that doesn't rev past a slow idle.

Hopefully he'll get in the gym with Giannis and bust his ass. He better if he wants to make it.

Or maybe he's a 21 year old that needs to mature a bit more. :dontknow:

Not!

Well, probably not... OK, hopefully not.

He got some PT at the end of last season and showed well. He filled up the stat sheet the last six games.

He's still only 21yrs old, he's still 7'1 with length, he's still skilled, he's still a good athlete (albeit, with poor standing jumping ability) and he still can play some good defense... Most of all, he's now a Buck.

He's worth kicking the tires on at only 21, the Suns are a totally dysfunctional organization and I think he has some intriguing raw tools that might be of interest to Bud. Like the signing, low risk high reward.

I'm looking forward to our FMase, DDV, PCon, CRey, Dragon lineup running the Hornets off the floor in March next year.

**** it. I’m gonna get excited about this signing. 15th man might be decent. Dragan is about to get him a Darko ring!

Young 3 and D big with unlimited offensive potential who is not afraid to mix it up. I wish we could have signed a guy like that instead.

Drunk is the only condition that makes posting Sisqo right.

Dragan is a guy who plays basketball because he’s tall but really isn’t into it.

But good luck to the guy. He’s made millions of dollars simply for being tall and looking like a basketballer. I look forward to him jacking threes in garbage time as our new victory cigar. Anything else is gravy so there’s plenty of scope to pleasantly surprise me.

I’m going to dream Bucks U turn him into something valuable.
I admit to being a terrible judge of talent and having minimal knowledge of the game of basketball.

if he cant succeed here, he cant succeed in the NBA. We ask of our centers all the things he excels at.

what a shrewd move from JonJorst basically a free 2nd rounder.
