Biz isn't elite defensively, and his strength on defense does not compensate for his inadequacies on offense. Whatever rim protection he provided he wasn't great moving his feet or being out of position as he would at times hunt blocks on defense. His Real Defensive Plus/Minus was not much higher than Big Al's, and Al struggled last year with injuries (on top of not being a great defender to begin with) He won't average 10-15-4 next year because no one is going to play him enough minutes to. Someone on twitter said yesterday that initial interest around the league for Biz is tepid.
I am so tempted to give a one line response lol. Look the guy is just not that good. His offense was putrid, and his defense is overrated, and his rim protection doesn't make up for his offense. You can't run any pick and roll with him because you just trap the ball because he can't even catch the ball and when he does he cannot finish around the rim unless he has a wide open dunk. I like Biz. He seemed like a good dude, but he just wasn't very good. He is young though and seemed to improve year to year so hopefully he carves out a career as a role player. I hate moving on from projects before they fully develop, which happens all the time which is why I don't like drafting projects, but I am not surprised. ETA: no need to ever apologize to me. Say your piece brother
I like Myles Turner, love his skill, rim protection, and rebounding. Needs to add strength, work on back to basket game, and moving his feet better. The guy has huge upside I am almost always wrong about players I like so hopefully we stay away from him lol
This is a fair point, but he had a similar period at UNC. He misses good though (I know I know) They are usually on target just a little short or long. Once he gets a better build and gets used to NBA those shots will start falling. He also shot well but didn't have great shot selection. That will help a bunch too. Just give him a little time.
I like spacers and Hawes can stretch the floor. Had down year last year shooting the ball but career 35% 3 point shooter. Had a year over 40% shooting 300 threes in a season. But I also liked Stephenson signing and thought he would be a good player for us so what do I know
