Well it's true that he isn't a pure pg. So much so that in his French team he was even used as an off guard but it was more of a 2pg lineup.

In any case I'd like to develop him as a PG but him playing the 2 shouldn't be considered a slight but rather a bonus. It means we could land a more prolific player at either guard position and still Frank has a place to play. It's only that most people are narrow minded that makes it difficult.

I'm thinking he has the potential to be a point forward at this rate

It's wild to think this time last year he was still playing in the French league meanwhile all the draft prospects were chilling and doing workouts for teams.

He never really had time to relax and get better. It was off to the Summer League and team practice.

Kind of puts things in perspective of how much he can improve in all this time he missed last year.

Damn. Frank might be the first NBA player ever who said he worked out and got bigger and actually looks like it. All the others tend to be "Well, maybe, in a certain lighting, he might look bigger"

KP in particular. He's like the 7'3" Jamal Crawford for lifting weights but never changing appearance as a pro.

I know. That picture of Frank is actually kind of freaky. He literally flipped a switch and in two months he went boing!

While it still has to translate to his performance on the court, this should chasten some of the weirdos here who were making conclusive and definitive put-downs on the future of a 19 year old.

He looks almost beastly already and he's still growing so I think we have a physical specimen on our hands who is going to rag doll the league on defense. I'm not even worried about his offensive game coming along, because once he feels his growing strength on the court his confidence is going up and up. I expect Frank to start jamming in traffic this season. I think people who are looking for some slow and steady 4 year arc may be in for a shock. I feel he will make a pretty big leap forwards this year.

I mean geezus, look at those shoulders. He is a super wide body and he isn't even halfways to filling out his frame. He's going to have an elite wing span with legit power.

Oh and Chris Brickley is 6’4 standing next to Frank you can see his height growth.

Seriously , can we get some real expert to work with Kp. He's needs to get bigger and stronger to play center.

Frank has a great, wide frame which allows him to get big; I'm concerned (if we draft) about Mikal, who seems to have a wiry frame and may be maxed out.

Frank was never skinny when he entered the NBA, so his situation is different than KP who is trying to get bigger. Frank just got more toned, he didn't really bulk up. He already had the mass when he came into the league

We tried to tell 'em about that frame. It's so much harder for a guy like KP to add weight. Frank will fill out easily.

Mikal has the same sort of build, btw.

Lol I know Genetics plays a role; I was just making a joke. Though KP could use some better trainers as his form in some of his workouts looks bad and his trainers should correct that.

My comment wasn't intended in your direction - you mostly caught some shrapnel. And, upon further explanation, I agree 100%.
