The appeal is that he might be a top 3 passing big in the league already. Giles can make live dribble passes that only Jokic and Draymond and maybe Bam can do right now.
He's improved every year as a mid-range shooter and might be able to extend out to 3 in a season or 2. He's got some post moves and decent hops/length. High motor and pretty smart cutter and only 22. Giles was the #1 player in his class before all the knee injuries and you can see the talent there still.
Currently bad defender (but i think smart enough to be good one day), undersized (needs to bulk up a little IMO) and not very quick or bouncy on account of the ACL tears.
I think if you bring him in on a 2-3 year deal, we can turn him into a good starting C (especially if you can get Marc to mentor him for one season). Its similar to the Kawhi gamble just a little more extreme where you take a great talent and hope your staff can rehab him.
I think the potential of Giles with our current core would be a pretty great fit and def worth the target.
Probably like 3yr/16M last year not fully guaranteed type contract.
Yup. I think we could probably get him even cheaper than that.
cheaper the better tbh. but i think he will have a couple team going for him i think. Boston might be one. idk if id be willing to get in a bidding war though
