22 to Memphis.

But he shouldn't have come out right?

that puts him around average right? Maybe just a bad day at the combine.

22 points on 16 shots. 4 steals. First summer league game.

I'm going to have a lot of fun going back through the comments on this thread some day. :lol:

Real curious to see how he does as the analytics seem super high on him.

I'm surprised his defense seems to be good despite not playing zone.

I think this will be looked back on as one of the major "wins" for the analytics movement. The traditional evaluations just did not have him as much more than a fringe 1st-round prospect and the numbers had him top 5 almost across the board (regardless of the methodology involved). Watching his scouting videos it looked like he was doing NBA things to me, though I don't pretend to be a scout or anything. I wanted my Jazz to grab him at 23 and he went 1 spot earlier. I think he will be a quality NBA starter and might even make an All Star team. I'm thinking Tayshaun Prince level player, which is a massive steal in the 20s.

I'm pretty impressed by his footspeed. This guy has above average starting SG written all over him

Liked him quite a bit during the draft. Definitely a player I am going to keep an eye on. Wasn't sure what his role with Memphis would be since he cannot play PG or SF - but that team needs wing scoring so he might be their 6th man.

In my mind he is the prototypical bench scorer, a James Harden-lite (with probably better defense).
