I like Cole but I'd sell high (QUICK) for a little more spacing and team play. WAS is thick with big wings with Kuzma, Bertans, and now Hachimura back and don't have enough scoring depth at the guard spot. Cole could come off the bench but play big minutes. ORL has Fultz and, especially, Suggs to run point (along with Franz as a big guard/point forward)...Avidja and Kispert don't have numbers like Cole, but are solid, all-around players with high BBIQ and, most importantly, floor-spreading range (allegedly). RJ is another cost-controlled energy guy with yet-to-be determined upside. Basically, I'd be hoping to trade flash for substance and understand that there may be quite a few nights reading about Cole going for 30 and that's ok. WAS could play some 3 guard lineups that might be pretty electrifying too. The ORL lineup below just gives me "play the right way" vibes with Franz being the best example of what we're hoping to do. You could start 3 Franz's if you had them. Everyone other than Fultz and Bamba are basically positionless, versatile players that can be organized in many different sets.
Lots of actual basketball skill (shooting!!) as well as positional size and defensive possibility on this roster and still significant room for more change. Harris, TRoss,Bamba are all apparently in play as well as picks and a TPE.
Kispert has not transitioned his shooting to the NBA. it could be a slump, or it could be he cant handle the more athletic players that he didnt face in that joke of a conference Gonzaga plays in
