I don’t feel I am going out on a limb by saying Culver will not be a positive PG in his first season.
The star college point guards that get drafted in the lottery are rarely positive players in their first season. The NBA game is just so much more athletic, with smarter players and more complicated systems. I hope Culver gets a little time this year to try it out, but this season, it will be at a cost to the development of the other young players on the floor.
Unless we trade for D-Lo the only other option is starting a rookie a year from now that wont be a positive his first year either
I don’t think there is any way to know what options will be out there at PG next year. Sure, this year, Russell and Conley might have been likely to change teams, but who could have predicted Westbrook and Chris Paul, even a month before free agency? The league is filled with ball-handlers now. Next draft has several lottery PG’s, that can displace other PG’s. More may be displaced as the league shifts towards putting the ball in the hands of non-PG’s. I do not see it as two options, to either trade for Russell or you’re stuck with a rookie.
In any event, I didn’t understand how that had anything to do with my comment on Culver? I hope he gets some minutes with the ball in his hands, and maybe he can develop. I am just saying don’t get too excited for him this next season. He has a lot of other things to work on to be a good nba player, before he is trying to learn to run an offense vs NBA defenses.
