Your thought on Hoard ?

Averaging almost 12 pts a game he's taking advantage of the situation, being with Theo and having the opportunity to express himself without pressure with tank situation !

I don’t have thoughts on Hoard, but I do think it’s hilarious seeing a French person describe OKC as paradise :)

Too soon to really know. With the current roster, he will have to do something special to stand out. It doesn't look like he's much of a shooter from distance so my guess is it' unlikely he's here long term. I don't have a problem with having a player or two that can't shoot but we already have several of those guys.That being said, none of us really have an idea what's going to happen.

Imo, it is uncertain if Hoard makes fall roster. May not even make it thru rest of season but probably.

Because of the lack of demonstrated in NBA 3pt game, he has less room for other issues. The high TO rate is a problem. The rebounding isn't enough probably. To stick awhile he probably needs to fix at least one of these concerns. To stick long-term, probably 2 or 3 of the concerns. The standard might be is he better than Diallo or coming soon Deck. Right now the answer to the first is no.

I'd say the odds are against him lasting long but he has a modest oportunity. Cut the turnovers, grab more rebounds, make a few 3 pointers. I haven't seen what his shot defense stats look like but they better be above average.
