And what's your opinion of Porter? He is just too injury prone and never lived up to our expectations.
Vooch has been great and is starting to get comfortable after an emotional goodbye. Once he gets into a rhythm and develops chemistry with Zach they will be deadly in the P&R.
Wendell has exceeded every expectation so far. He's been much better than Bamba, who still struggles with an inconsistent motor and fouls.
We heard WCJ has bad hands, but he's only fumbled one pass in 5 games. Otherwise he's had reliable hands which has really helped him as the roll man in pick and roll.
We heard WCJ really struggled defending the pick and roll, but he's been active and smart providing help and contesting at the rim.
He's doubled his 3PT rate from 8.5% of his attempts to 17% of his attempts. He's only 1-8 so far, but he needs to keep taking them when he's wide open to try and develop that shot.
No complaints so far. He's defending, rebounding and finishing. He's getting to the line and making FTs. The only thing that isn't there yet is the three ball, but he's at least been willing to take them.
Glad to hear Knightro, before this year we had a terribly dysfunctional & toxic environment that flowed from the FO all the way down to the coaching staff. WCJ was probably a victim of that, as he was never properly coached (Remember we has the worst clown coach ever before this season).
WCJ also put undue pressure onto himself by declaring his desire to be a floor spacing 4 which we knew was not possible due to his natural talent of being a 5.
I would say before he becomes a double/double machine next year it would be nice to see a statline of 14PPG, 9RPG, & maybe 30% 3pt shooting. That would be a great foundation to build off of going into your off season. I felt sorry for him because his body language just oozed disappointment but by that time a change was needed for him & other pieces.
BTW, Vooch was incredible last night. 32/17 albeit on 29 shots. LaVine is still recoveting but they are developing some nice initial chemistry.
