He’ll be in a trade package for Harrison Barnes - the prototypical Thibodeau player.

No thanks to Barnes.

Barnes is a strictly better Randle at this point.

Interesting bc after watching Rokus in SL, I thought that his dribble was way too high for the NBA. He was having trouble with it then but he looked great at the 2-guard position. He moved the ball, hit his shots, and displayed a high BBIQ.
