Great motor and he moves around the court like he's 6 feet tall, it's shocking how athletic he is for his size.

He just needs a year in the league to get his timing right (which is already pretty freaking good right now after a year off) and get some weight on him. Once that happens sky is the limit.

He has great hands and his athleticism is off the charts.

Really really excited to see him develop the next 3 to 4 years.

Our FC has tremendous potential. Knox/KP/Robinson could be a dominating trio. Frank being a pass first, great defender will actually be a plus. I hope Hezonja can fit in with these 4. That's about as long as you get for a lineup. Defense. Offense. Fast breaks. Oh my.

good article on bigs and offense. mitchell is said to have been practicing shooting, and shooting with AD, so i'm pretty eager to see his range game.

he seems to have the touch to be able to do a passable version of the pull up jumper move.

I really haven't watched enough of him to know how he'd fit. I hear he struggled at the 2 in ORL. That's what prompted that comment. Not sure if that was him or the coaching.

Meh. I want to see what Mario can do. I'm bored with Timmy right now. I don't dislike him either. Just want to see what a different player on a much cheaper deal can do. Younger as well.

you not playing mario at a guard spot at this point, i don't think.

timmy's here. 2 years after this on his deal. 1 if he's playing well and opts out. might as well ride with him. if you sign a kyrie or something move him to the bench. but we benefit from him balling out ASAP.

I STILL want to see that lineup. I didn't dismiss Timmy but, he can't play 48 minutes.

We're so much more athletic now with Knox, Mitchell and Porzingis frontcourt. I hope we can get Reddish next summer to add, and Jimmy / Kyrie bring their talents to Manhattan.

I'd rather see us pick up someone to start alongside Frank in the backcourt and have the Michigan connection come off the bench, Timmy and Trey. They should be able to kill opposing benches backcourts.

MRob
KP
Knox
Frank
? PG or SG depending on how we want to use Frank

? 4/5
Mario both F spots
THJ
Trey

2019: I'd resign Mario to back up both forward spots, and we need a guard to start alongside Frank,
and a 4/5 to backup MRob (KP also getting some minutes there).
We have a probable lottery pick and capspace to fill those 2 holes.
Depending on how well we fill one of those spots in free agency, we could be ready to make some noise with that 9 man rotation.
