This is so worthless for evaluating pretty much everything besides whether a guy can shoot it because of how bad the defense is.

Tucker is 3/6 on 3 pointers in this game. Shot 41% from 3 his last year in college. It's not that far fetched...

Then get out of the thread. Thank you very little. If you're not watching these painful games...I don't care what you have to say. 8-)

I understand. This is the first game he's hitting from deep. AND, his FT shooting has been pedestrian at best. I like his effort though. Really, I do.

This is just confusing. Tucker. Fletched. What, is he an archer with a tight grip?

I still adamantly propose: DJ Wilson's best basketball skill is palming the ball.

Um, not even close. This is the bottom of the barrel. There is some potential here, sure. BUT, this is projection at its most speculative.

Nah. Just doing what he's been doing. Which is 10x more than DJ Wilson.

I am convinced the little 2 month run we witnessed from DJ was some absurd improbable run of basketball on his behalf most likely nurtured by a rare energy drink the Lasry's found on a Hedge-Fund funded trip to Bali. He's just not good. At all.

Does Magee still suck? Or was that just a one game thing?

Doubt anyone on this summer league roster plays any meaningful minutes this year. We still only have 1pg on the roster too. That’s bad

Aren't Bledsoe and George Hill both on the roster? I feel like I have seen other people writing this.

I won’t expect any meaningful contributions from DJ Wilson this year. Yikes.

Daulton Hommes can shoot the ball and has NBA size. He's young and it looks like he works hard. He seems kinda timid. I felt like he was trying to make the right play and pass to his teammates more than he was trying to "get his" like some of the other guys do. He doesn't use his body very well. It looked like he was getting pushed around and had a hard time grabbing rebounds. He also looked slow in defense.

Rayjon Tucker also clearly has an NBA body. He's super aggressive and has a hell of a motor. To me he looks like he has an "NBA toughness". He's able to drive to the basket and his three point shot looked pretty good in the last game. What is up with the free throws though? I don't think I saw him make one all summer league. From what I saw, he's quick enough to guard at the NBA level.

These two have so much raw potential. I like Fletcher too but I just think he has way more work to do. However, the shooting is undeniable. I just hope Tucker and Hommes get two way contracts and we can watch them develop.
