I like Trae because of his passing ability more than anything. If he's Lou Will w elite playmaking skills, that's a borderline all-star.

I think he's more IT than Trae. He is really quick w the ball and passes people open pretty well.

He is bigger than IT though which changes everything, Eskimo Nash imo

That's a great one. I don't got the stones to say Nash though LOL! His shot selection is much worse than Nash, but he has a few of the same skills. I don't think he'll be Nash good though.

Trae is like 5'11 though. I'd be shocked if he's bigger so I see him being a liability on defense.

Yeah and Trae's shot selection and IQ is what I dislike about his game the most. If Nash was erratic, he wouldn't be the same level player. I see the shooting and quickness though in both of them.
