He can shoot, he would be a good fit here. He'll need to put on about 20 lbs of muscle though eventually.
yea i think it said he weighs 225 .? thats way too light. But he does add a different skill set then what we have at center so i guess.
at 6'10 225, he would be a stretch 4 on our roster. small ball 5. I really would like this pick.
however, Jarrett Allen is 6'11, 245.
I wouldn't ship Allen out of town yet. There's no reason why we wouldn't draft this kid to be in the PF rotation with KD and Prince (we should really move Prince to SF).
I'm leaning more towards the camp that wants to return our full roster next season plus MLE, #19 and vet minimums. I don't think we need to make trades unless it's for an all star level talent.
-I'm not sold on Nic Claxton yet.
-If we resign Harris, keep Dinwiddie and Allen we have a really loaded squad. we would just need to spend the MLE on a player that can defend spots 2, 3, and 4 when needed. No one is stopping our death line up anyway.
I feel very confident if we can maintain health through the season.
yea i thought about him being a 4 too because of his shooting, i just don't know if he's laterally quick enough to defend the 4s of today, maybe he is though that would be even better. And if he can switch defensively and guard 3-5s then this would be a solid pick.
If Allen is 245 and we think he's still too skinny then this dude definitely isn't a center yet, only small ball like you said.
I'm definitely sold on Claxton, but it's going to take another year and playing with KD at practice will only make him better. I definitely think he'll be a rotation player someday, maybe in year 4. But for now he's not going to get the minutes.
I agree with you though, I would really like Jrue and others but i really wouldn't mind keeping all of our guys, I love all of them honestly. And plus we would have sooooo much depth, when KD and Kyrie rests we'll still be able to keep pace in the east.
Like you said, we just need 2-3 guys that can defend the wings and on switches and I'll be fine. We'll definitely get a guy on the MLE that can do that and hopefully a solid veteran for the vet min. I like Dunn, Mo harkless, Jae Crowder, Ennis, Bazemore, etc.. I'll take a flier on a guy like Josh jackson.
