It's going to be hard to play him anywhere but the 5, given his weak shooting.

People are over analysing again against small sample sizes.

31% is not great but it's not absolutely awful either compared to other forwards and puts him probably in top 60% of 3pt shooting in the NBA for the forward position.

More concerning is the FT percentage... although again... he took 43 attempts for the entire season. Such a small sample size it's almost irrelevant.

To show you how irrelevant it is if you only took Ben Simmons last 58 shot attempts in the post season you'd come away believing he is a 70% FT shooter.

The form on his shot actually looks perfect. I don’t think his shooting this past year was a true indication of his capability.

He kinda does a weird fadeaway thing, but yeah. Last year he shot 41% from 3. If he shoots somewhere between 41%-31% next year, while slowly pushing towards the top end as he develops, that'd be swell.

I honestly think he could potentially uproot Saric at PF due to his defense and length. Like I said, shot isn’t a big concern to me. His ballhandling and vision are more advanced than most players his size. Both are better than Embiid right now. His hands on defense are pretty ridiculous. He seems like a very comfortable stretch 4 that can play small ball 5.

I would guess he does to get more time with Sixer coaches/players, but I don’t know.

Probably picks. Too many players on the roster.

Per Pompey, Bolden plans to be on the roster this season.

If he could hit Free throws, he'd probably already have a spot.

Yes, his FT rate doesn't look good, only .512% last season. Everything else look decent...

Hopefully it is just jet lag, but he looks sluggish thus far.

I find that Bolden is the most over hyped / valued player on this board. Definitely not worth 2 seconds.
