Maxey is just a flat out scorer though the shot scares the sh*t out of me.
I moved down from 16 to 20 with the intent on picking either Maxey or Hampton. Picking up Okogie in the process is what sealed it for me. Thankfully you took Nesmith or my plan would have backfired
yeah I din't think taking hampton and maxey both made a lot of sense since they both have questionable shots...RJ has a bit more upside in my opinion with his shot looking smoother. But Maxey just knows how to score. If the shot gets better I see a bit of Lou Williams in him (but Lou can shoot from all over) that will be the deciding factor on Maxey.
I think Maxey shot ball very well from Free Throw line if I recall. He was a bit too high usage IMO. I think he'll be fine if he's reeled in some and the kid is high motor, tough, not afraid of big shot, and has spider arms (high defensive potential). I like him.
