Due to the continuity that they were hoping for over the summer.... they now have 30 million invested in the sg position ahead of him. Yes... there is definitely a chance that he could outplay both and be a huge steal.... but that can be hard to determine especially since other players have looked amazing in SL as well.... just to be decent or worse on the NBA court.
Based on the STAT tracking company that everyone was happy that we were apart of... Chuma is a gem at 16.... soooooooo.... yeah. It's not like they blindly made the decision without a plan. Like they are doing with everyone else.... let them take their time and more to get healthy. watching cousin's go down again and again.... and shoot even durant.... makes you realize... ain't no need to rush. :-/
So instead of a rookie who could fill a need (guard of the future who can create) sitting some of this year, we'll have another rookie who isn't really ours sit all year and not fill a need (3+D backup big man). A lot of people thought NAW would be a pg in the league too.
Not trying to come at you, I see the glass half full in a lot of things. But not this brain trust. So I guess that eliminates the whole "just trust it because they're GMs and not you" type of thinking for me.
Yep. Not only this, but if Fultz doesn’t pan out THIS season they will look foolish for passing on NAW. Why? Because DJ/MCW isn’t a passable point guard rotation for what the FO is selling as a “playoff team”. There was no backup plan. Evan and Ross can both switch to SF situationally, but neither can play pg. That’s why the argument of a “stacked SG rotation” doesn’t hold water. Chuma could end up being great in the long run for all we know, but you can’t unequivocally say that NAW wasn’t going to be an immediate contributor to a playoff team that needs playmaking and had a similar trajectory at his pick.
NAW is not a PG either...Okeke was BPA for FO...if Fultz doesn’t pan out a trade will be made and the forward depth will more than likely be involved...NAW being an immediate contributor is a total total presumption
