Juice, you don't understand. That dribbling he did - he was able to hypnotize the defender, then blow by him. That's a very valuable skill that few in the NBA have ever mastered. Because of this, with a lot of improvement, one day he could be the next Andy Rautins.

He does. MUCH better passer and vision (to the point where he forces some passes he probably shouldn't be making) and he's a much better defender - actually solid here. The issues come with decision-making (see above), some shot selection concerns, and inability to finish at the rim due to size.

Not saying he's a rotation guy now, or necessarily one in the future, but he has potential for sure and this was a low-key solid move with the (likely) exhibit 10.

Reminds me of Chasson Randle. He gets it he won't pass.

Yes! Just the type of undersized ball-dominant non-passing PG that every championship contender should be looking to stockpile.

Who's Kawhi Leonard on the Knicks? Or Siakham, for that matter?

Lol, he’s gotta make the team first. When Perry and his scouts look for additional talent to develop you think they should be eliminating players that are similar to those on the roster? I think the point is to find as many “unpolished gems” as possible.
A new era or error?

They are the same height but Peters is 15 pounds heavier. Burke is the miniature version of Peters

Trier was a 6'5 Elite SG, they are nothing alike
