The guy averaged 7 ppg in euroleague I don't think his role is the issue.

I don't think he is being misused, he is simply playing a role in the offense. He has had a lot of opportunities to do everything in the scheme, and simply has not performed well. Very casual with the ball as well.


I actually see some improvement on D, he gave Ayton a very hard time yesterday....but offensively he is an absolute disaster, I don't know what happened in just one year but whatever he did, he needs to take it back to the store and get his money back.

Honestly, I don't think Bolden really regressed offensively. In hindsight, he kinda always sucked on offense and we just overrated him.

I like how Korkmaz bet on himself. Whether he succeeds or fails, he got to watch and practice with shooters like Redick and Bellinelli. It could make the difference in his future.

Bolden, Pasecniks and other promising prospects should make the move earlier, if possible, to learn their weaknesses.

Yeah, the problem is we don't have the rosters spots to do that right now.

I could see us doing a trade just to get the roster spots down really.

Unfortunately, it appears his terrible shooting percentages don't lie.

Overall I like his defensive potential. His offense looks like it needs serious work though.

Guy needs to become a decent FT and 3PT shooter to make it in the NBA.

Hopefully we get Kyle Korver in here to help fix his (and others') shot.

Dude needs to go back over seas to develop, still a awful player. Wasn’t worthy of a 2nd rd pick.

Well we signed him anyhow. Management must think there is something there worth pursuing.

He should develop more here, like Korkmaz has practicing and watching vets like Redick and Bellinelli.

G-league, practice, and just being involved with the team could help him, greatly.

Dario, Muscala, and even Simmons could make it difficult for him to see minutes, but the experience should be good for him and the Sixers for the future.

Hardly an overreaction. As a guy going into his second summer league he still looked sped up and out of control. He had one game where he seemed to slow down, take what was given to him.

I stopped counting the number of times he insisted on running a fast break or bringing the ball up only to kick it out of bounds or get stripped the moment he crossed half court. He does that garbage with Brett and he'll be buried deeper than Richaun ever was.

If he can play some D to hold things down while Embiid is on the bench, that'd be enough for this year.
