But when we drafted him were really expecting that? My vison for him was always a spark plug off the bench with some small ball handling responsibility here and there. I wanted him on the floor with either Fultz or MCW at all times. Both of them are out so now we are thursting him into a role he shouldnt be in this early.The starting PG is the deepest most competitive position in the league. Hes not ready for this. I think hes handled himself defensivly way better then Id expect. Offensivly hes been awful aside from FT shooting. The sample size is still too small. Like you said its too early. Either his shooting numbers are gonna improve or his FT shooting is gonna fall. A 90% FT shooter and 11% 3pt shooter just doesnt match lol.Bergmaniac wrote:We've already started using AG as the main ballhandler, not a good sign for Clifford's trust in Cole's PG skills.
And he just can't get any separation against NBA level defenders, which for a guy his size is absolutely essential for being a non-terrible scorer.
Still very early on, of course, he may turn it around, but so far things don't look at all.
