Dude has played less than 50 minutes as a pro, don't really have any thoughts yet it's way too early.

I'm sure lack of playing time has effected his confidence but won't lie been pretty damn disappointed with how unassertive he's been. The dude showed a lot of skill that I would think he'd at least prove to be a solid piece but maybe if we do get mathematically eliminated he'll get some time to show different...

Rookies need time to learn what shots/moves work and what doesn't work.
Organization can be defined as an organized body of people with a particular purpose. Not random.

So 35 minutes per game, you're saying?

A bench wing player in the current NBA has 2 jobs:
1) play defense
2) stand in the corner and shoot 3's
So all you can show is defense and 3-point shooting.

Well technically he's 6'4" 1/4 but in old shoes measurement would be a 6'5 SG. :nod:

ok ok. But combines don't tell the whole story.

In the athletic testing, Harris showed off record-breaking vertical skills. His standing vertical jump of 37.5 inches was the highest in the 2020 combine and the best in the last four NBA combines. His maximum vertical jump, which includes a running start, was 42.5 inches, the third best in this year's field. For comparison purposes, the best max vertical by a Nevada alum at the NBA combine before this Harris was held by Deonte Burton and Cameron Oliver, who both jumped 39.5 inches.


Harris also posted a lane agility time of 10.59 seconds, the third best at this year's combine. His 2.49-second shuttle run ranked 10th in the field. And his 3.11-second three-quarter-court sprint ranked fifth. In all five of the athletic testing events, Harris finished in the top 10. (Bench press figures were not released.) Harris was the only player in this year's combine to finish top 10 in each athletic event, making him arguably the best athlete in this year's draft.


yet...

ESPN ranks Harris as the No. 81 player in this year's draft, which includes 60 picks. ESPN did not have Harris on its latest two-round mock draft. NBAdraft.net also doesn't have Harris on its two-round mock draft. The high man on Harris seems to be former NBA agent turned analysis Matt Babcock, who projected Harris to go 40th overall to Memphis.


Lets see how he progresses.

:lol: :lol: Nah Subs. I could be wrong, and it wouldn't be the first or last time either! Just speaking on what I'm watching. He may have tested well in the combine but haven't seen that quickness or explosiveness in the games I've watched.

1:00 terrible defense but he gets to the hoop avoiding the help rotation
1:18 again bad defense but goes left baseline



0:12 blows by the defender for the lay in.

That shooting stroke is sweet like Trent!



0:11 beats KCP into the lane and dishes to an open Yuta for 3

He really had even the kind of minutes that Flynn got in the 1st half of the season, so he should have plenty of time to serve crow.

I think he could eventually take minutes away from Watson with his ball-handling.

From what I read he measured 6’2.75 bare foot. He’s most likely 6’4 in shoes.

I thought they listed the measurements without shoes now.
