I think Bazley and Poku are far better than Ferguson ever was, FWIW. Ferguson couldn’t hang mentally, IMO.
Poku is going to be in the league a long time, IMO.
Hopefully I'm proven wrong over time but I just don't see the flash in Poku that Thunder fans claim to see.
I just don't see anything special yet. Obviously he's still young and has plenty of room to grow, so I'm not completely sour on him. But a big part of me still wishes Presti would have used last year's 1st round pick on Desmond Bane. He was one of the top 3 guys who I wanted in that draft class.
Fast forward to the 2021-2022 season.....Bane is efficiently dropping 19 ppg while shooting 48% FG | 41% 3PT | 88% FT%.
We've badly needed shooters for over 4 years now but for whatever reason Presti passes on this guy to roll the dice on a long shot project (Poku).
