Can't deny that he's still a little lost out there. Doesn't look nearly as lost as he did originally, but in terms of getting into the flow of the offense specifically, he's just not comfortable asserting himself. Hopefully he grows into it in time.
I will say I'm a little surprised by the all or nothing approach. One thing about Nesmith that I really like is his ability to shoot off screens and in motion. I feel like that talent could be utilized a bit better without having to feed him minutes. Especially coming out of timeouts where Brad can draw up a set and let him get to one of his spots off a down screen etc. This team is often lacking that scoring punch outside our big 3 and Aaron feels like a guy who could manufacture a bucket here or there even if you're only giving him around 5 minutes in that game.
It'll be interesting to see how he responds when he does get minutes again after being fed them for a handful of games and then back to DNP-CD.
He moved really good without the ball in college but it’s a totally different story here, I’ve watched Tatum waive him off then leave him totally wide open after drawing Shia defender. Feels like rookies just get pushed into the corners and are forced to stay out of the way rather than being in the flow of the offense. Feels like Jaylen was the same as a rook, though Boston’s bench then wasn’t so weak and needing scoring.
