Can he put on some more muscle? The last i heard he is up to 180 pounds .
I love this high end comparison
Barton was a textbook athletic slasher who developed a good enough jumper, Joe is a much smaller shooter who might maybe maybe develop a driving game. Not seeing the comp there.
I do think Joe is basically a project shooter, nothing wrong with that. Fine with getting a decent one of those for nothing and having them be our 11th-12th man while we gauge his potential. If he becomes last year’s Furkan in a year or two, that’s great.
Yesh i know they have different games but i was compaing their body type/frame.
The hope that his body type wont deter him from lasting in the NBA. He is smaller than i thought at only 6'3 but atleast that makes his weight a wee bit less concerning seeing as he is not 6'5 , 6'6 wing i initially thought.
I saw some landry shamet and afernee simons comparisons which makes since except they have some combo guard ability.
