Joseph Young 

Post#1 » by Dr Positivity » Sun May 24, 2015 9:28 pm

He is currently ranked late 2nd round because he is an old combo guard but anybody like him?

He could be deadly shooter prospect with over 93% FT, 36% on over 7 attempts from 3 a game, over 40% from 3 the last few seasons. Looks like he is fast and can get to the basket. Scored 21ppg this year for Oregon. Has 6'5 wingspan so it will be hard for him to play SG but maybe he'll be able to cut it as a score first PG.

3. RAPM/RPM is proven measuring regular season value, but not postseason

I like him despite his unwillingness to play defense, or lack of length. He's clearly a bench player who might get some Isaiah Thomas love if given the right opportunity, but I think he's the type to come off the bench and light it up for you.

Real nice game by Young today. Not only the points but the passing is encouraging for his odds of being a PG instead of a SG in the NBA

Looks like a carbon copy of many games he played at Oregon. I think he could have the impact of another Oregon combo guard, Aaron Brooks.
