He's clearly a worker. So I would play him at the SG position. You yourself say, "Nobody has any reservations about his elite defense against any position", if all he does is shoot the three from the NBA rate at the same percentage but on higher volume. Man that's like Loul Deng at SG.

Hunter's so much better at shooting than Deng. Teams would dare Deng to shoot. It's such a huge difference between the 2.
he is a better shooter per say but the numbers are deceiving given his low attempts.
If the % stays good at higher attempts against better defenders and he shows handles to break down defenses better than in the past he could be a solid pro maybe even worth the 4th if most others taken later wash out... but the odds are he is an average at best outside shooter with a solid midrange game ala rodney hood/ Harrison Barnes

Shooters are better now because the teams put more emphasis on shooting. J agree with the Hunter is a better shooter than Deng.

I think Hunter and Deng can be similar level defenders, mid-range shooters and transition players.Hunter should work to develop a 6 3pfga 37%+ make type of shooting game. That would be better than Deng for sure.

But everyone hoots more and is a better shooter now. So relative to the rest of the league o like the Deng comp. Although maybe their is a better one.

I don't know or think Hunter is as talented as Deng but Hunter is a much better defender coming out of college than Deng was and it wasn't even close. I don't know if Deng is a good comparison. I don't think there is one for Hunter.
