look at him, guy needs to add 50 pounds. But fluidity he moves at 7 foot is super unique and impressive.
yeah, but give him 50 lbs and he most likely will not move as fluidly
He is so severely underweight that adding lean muscle mass should actually make him better athlete.
He has solid looking jumpshot, he moves really,really well and he can handle the ball.
But you look at his production ,guy shot 54% inside 3 feet. needless to say it's pathetic. Direct co-relation with fact that by strenght, he is weakest active nba player today, including guards.
Same was with Brandon Ingram, simply too skinny to do anything in rookie year, but even Ingram shot 60 %inside 3 feet ( nowdays he shoots 68% ) , same happend to even elite prospect like Durant (60,7% in rookie year 83% nowdays )
Pokuševski weaknesses are almost all weight and strenght related. Even if he can't shoot, being mobile 7 footer with shotblocking & ballhandling potential is nice.
People make big deal off how young Jonathan Kuminga is . Pokuševski is 9 months older.
Younger than Cade. Younger than Suggs. 2 months older than Green.
Again, he should have been 2021 draftee, not 2020. This is like "gratis" year for him.
Prediction day after Vuc, Gordon, Evan departure - most fans who are celebrating birth of new rebuild will be crying how rebuild is painful before 2022-23 season ends.
