Interesting nugget:The teenager grew an inch during the never-ending predraft process that stretched from March to November, another reminder of just how many ways he still has to grow. Edwards is now 6-foot-6 and 230 pounds with a 6-foot-10 wingspan. He’ll be one of the strongest and most powerful shooting guards in the NBA, while ranking in the 89th percentile among players at the position in running vertical leap and the 100th percentile in 3/4 sprint.
that's what its ultimately all about, 1% athlete that hasn't played basketball full time that long, so skill level can increase quite a bit
He's got to be able to use that athleticism to get to the rim/FT line, way more than he did in NCAA, hopefully the NBA spacing will allow him to do that right away
It's cool he can get a shot off pretty much whenever he wants but that can become a flaw like it did for Wiggins since it can result in bad pull ups
