Again, I know a 34-inch vertical isn't great for a 6-5 wing but he appears a lot more explosive on some of those highlights. One thing I'm beginning to notice is a lack of a left-hand. He's dunking right handed off the wrong foot. He rarely goes left and when he does, he's shooting right handed. Everybody is going to play him to his right on drives though he looks like he's going to start out as a 3-point shooter. The length of the NBA 3-point shot will not be an issue for him as you can tell from those highlights.
I think that's all true.
I don't see Schofield being a shot creator, at least not for a long time. He's going to be a switchable 3&D guy who can attack a closeout, but not much more. Basically, he'll be Kelly Oubre, which is a really good thing if it only costs the 42nd pick in the draft.
I would say a much smarter Oubre based on his experience. His BB IQ is pretty good and yes, he's definitely not a shot creator nor much of a passer. Defensively, I'd like to see more highlights. He shouldn't be awful with that kind of frame and athletic ability.
For this year, the only skill we need out of him is the ability to guard 3s.
If Ariza is gone we have no one on the roster who can reliably guard bigger wings . Troy Brown has the length but he isn’t yet as strong you’d like, and Rui can’t be expected to chase SFs around full time (based on what I’ve seen he should be guarding 4s).
Need to do a deep dive on Admiral’s defense but so far I’ve heard mixed reviews and idk how to feel.
