Looked good in his limited minutes. Hit his shots so I can't complain.

There is something about his dribble that makes me think he is definitely going to lose it whenever he goes into traffic. Seems very right hand dominate and crouched or the ball or something? I’m not close to knowledgeable on such things but the way he dribbles seems an issue to me and I can’t imagine him changing direction ever.
Shot well, defended with energy so he’s not bad. Hopefully he develops.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

He doesn't have the biggest hands.

Well we got to see him play basketball for the first time. Smooth stroke. Could handle the ball without committing an immediate turnover. Didn't look out of place on the court. For the 59th pick that's about as much as we could ask for. He'll be on the team for the duration of his deal and then we'll re-sign him to a decent 3-year and he'll be like Malcolm Miller+.

I see him being Cuttino Mobley or Norman Powell 2.0. His shots are already smooth and he's on balanced and not rushed by the speed of the NBA.

I think he's caught up to Watson already in terms of development.

Watson has a lot more size and is a better defender. Jalen will need to develop a drive game.

Vs the Lakers he had KCP in the corner and drove left all the way into the lane, the defense collapsed and kicked it out to Yuta, who hit the open 3.

Yeah, that was encouraging. He has also driven up the middle and, while not creating anything of substance or scoring, he also didn't make a mistake. Only real error was the turnover on the weave last night. He definitely looks like he can turn into something, but way too soon to say. Watson has proven more IMO. Harris has a higher ceiling, but lower floor.

He's probably not that good.

He’ll be lucky to be on the team next year. We have three draft picks coming in.

Just give him 20-25 minutes a game for the last few and see what he does.
