Well-built 6'6 with a 6'10 wingspan, and elite athleticism. Very good defender and can handle and make plays on offense. Didn't shoot great early, but improved a lot to close out the season, and his shooting form looks pretty good.
I'm still leaning big, but you gotta go BPA if it's there. Imagine the fits a combo of Green, OG, and Siakam would give teams on defense. Would be a good replacement for Norm if we let him go as he has better size than TDIII to guard wings.
I'd be fine with taking him but I disagree with he can handle. I don't think he has much of a handle at all. His offense is pretty concerning to me IMO. Bad finisher despite his athleticism, okay shooter, and bad handle for a perimeter player. He's basically all transition offense and wide-open 3s right now.
The defense is good but IDK if it's super impactful at 6'5, depends on whos on the board but for our team at 28 still not a bad pick as a possible role player.
He can definitely handle the rock some, and he's got some shake, but he's very right hand dominant like Powell was coming out of UCLA. In fact, I see some similarities in their games except that Green is a bit taller, and passes more.
