Yes! I loved this guy in the draft but he surely has sucked every time he's played since then.

50% on 3s. 23.6 PER. 3:1 AST:TOV ratio. 32.6 pts/100 possessions (more than Tobias).

Only 27 minutes last year, but if he keeps that up, we have an all-star.

Should be Myles Powell, but it’s better than Tucker.

Knee issues on Powell are a concern.

Is that why he wasn’t in summer league? I was looking around for his current situation and couldn’t find anything.

Who’s this guy? Bestfriend of Dame Lillard?

The Hornets were glad to be of this guy. No idea what the purpose of wasting a two way spot here is.
It is highly unlikely that the Sixers will agree with your Ben Simmons evaluation for the purposes of a trade.

Right, but that's an old injury that I imagine is nagging to him, but not preventing him from playing. At least, that's how I understood it unless he has been taking steps to rehab that injury, which I haven't really seen.

Tbf they also have an excess of talented dribblers.

I wasn't the biggest Riller fan at 21 last year, but I'd still take a flier on him as opposed to Rayjon Tucker, who I don't see any realistic NBA future in. He's just a showtime dunker.

Dynamic college scorer, shot the ball really well in the g-league last year on attempts. Low risk / high reward. He could pop right away in a Brunson type role if he takes the chance he's given.

Anyone have insight into why he didn’t impress in Charlotte?
