Also I laugh at all these writers that think the Hawks only struggled bc of defense & wont improve until then.
The thing is we are not building around Okoro to be a focal point of the offense. Trae is the franchise and Okoro is the best fit to support him. The guy has great defensive instincts with the matched athletic ability to guard 1-4 effectively.
His slashing and finishing would be a great compliment to the rest of the team. If they hold the combine he will blow it away.
Eh not sure I agree he’s the best fit. Just not a fan of undersize non/poor shooting wings(think his skill set is more of a combo forward).....you can’t play him & Capela together imo because spacing would be bad. Teams will lag off of Okoro at the 3 point line....
Plus every wing Schlenk has taken so far has shot 75%+ from the FT line in college FWIW. I think two way guys & having shooters all around Trae best suits him though those are hard to find....& Okoro could slash effectively in college (on low volume) but not sure I believe he will he able to consistently do that in the nba in the half court set. He is an explosive athlete with great frame no doubt just more of a skills thing that has me skeptical to take him at #6.
