Vassell looking like the perfect plug and play wing. Vassell at that 4-7 range ready to be the next Danny Green.

Well, he did. Then today a video came out of his new shooting form. Whoever taught him that should be fired, then rehired, just so you can fire him again.

Maybe this will tank his value into a realistic trade up range for us.

Pretty high release, still a great prospect. There will always be demand for 2 way wings, I would seriously trade up for him.

What a dramatic shift in form in just a brief period of time. Truly bizarre.

I get changing up your mechanics if you're a shaky/inconsistent jump-shooter, but I'll never understand why the hell these shooting coaches try and mess with what already works. The prototype form (high release, elbow-out) doesn't work the same for everybody, and some of the greatest shooters ever had pretty wonky releases (Reggie Miller says hi).

I read things that Vassell was just goofing around and that was what the video showed, no idea if this is true or not.

Hey, every 20 sec clip that shows 2 shots in a random gym should trump 2 years worth of tape preceded by years of development.

If the league passes on Vassell all the way down to 24 over this video, then the Bucks should **** their pants calling Silver to let him know he's their choice.

For his sake I hope so. He looks like me as a kid trying to re-create Michael Redd's jump shot in my driveway.

Apparently his shooting coach is Michael Kidd-Gilcrest.




(I also think he's just goofing around)

Yes, he is on my like list...

31 Killian Tillie (Like) 44.4% 3p Kevin Love type 6'10

In the Ringer I saw that he has health issues.


I feel like Giannis offsets a lot of his weaknesses, could be an excellent pairing. Does a lot of things on offense that look like a bigger Middleton actually



I really enjoyed that. Thank you.

Kinda reminds me of a young Marc Gasol.

Without a good 3 point shot, he hasn't shown he's a 2-way player. I watched a couple of FLaST games, and he disappeared on offense other than take open jumpers. Very good defender. Riot - Redd's an odd comp - very different type of player.

I am judging you for abbreviating Florida State University as FLaST, but not too harshly.

Flynn looking good working with Abunassar and the gang out at Impact, where every guard should spend every summer.

I think he's just referring to the behind the head shooting motion re: Redd but I could be mistaken.

I've discussed at length on this board about how I love Vassell as a two-way wing. I mentioned Redd referring to the Vassell workout video I posted where he displayed Redd-esque shooting form.

Flynn cannot miss. I'd love for the Bucks to get him somehow.
