He’s got range well beyond the NBA line...

No, it's you can't teach height. You can teach shooting. I think the Bucks have a shooting coach, so don't tell him he can't teach shooting. :lol:

At least this gives us something to focus on outside of the other mess. 10 minutes into a Nwora highlight package.

Yea, they allowed another leak. Lucky it didn't cost them. It's amateur hour under the Lasrys.

From what I can gather after a crash course, he could end up being Jae Crowder in his better shooting seasons/stints. Which would be excellent value in the middle 2nd rd.

On paper I think he's a good fit. We need a 3/4 who can shoot, rebound, & defend but doesn't try to impose himself on the offense. That instinct may need to be shed from him, unlike it was for Sterling Brown.

This is where our scouts usually make their $, because they don't get to influence the sexier choices in this franchise.

You can't teach literacy. You either have it or you don't.

Yep. On offense he’s made for Bud’s chuck it system. On D, well, he’s quicker than Korver :lol:

Cool pick. Bigger story is the leak. This organization is amateur hour.

Chainsaw and Dave give them two thumbs down.

We just needed bench fillers. If he doesn’t bring the mental farts that Sterling Brown does then it is fine.

I know, like "could be a decent bench player". Whoa people - let's not put him in the Hall of Fame yet, right?

I'm hearing a lot of good stuff about Jordan Nwora. He's a Forward, that's a basketball position. He's out of Louisville, that's a basketball school. He was picked up at 45 in the NBA draft, that's a basketball association. Sounds like a baller.

Think he is a better fit than dj but God help us if we need him more than 10 min a game the next two seasons.
