Wouldn't a good coach be able to turn him into a solid defensive player? I think his size/measurements are just fine. How big is Mike Conley again? Tony Parker? If Fizdale is the coach we hope he is, brings the things to the table we hope he does, then he should be able to work with a kid like Trae Young without a problem.
But, I don't think Trae Young will be available at 9 anyway so eh I'll just monitor the kids career from a distance
Fiz wants long guys that have a killer instinct on defense. I don’t think the FO is even thinking about drafting Trae Young. It’s a shame because he’s a heck of a talent and if he fell to 9, he should be strongly considered, but the FO is going Mikal all the way.
