The thing about trading the pick for a guy like Affalo is it destroys any chance we have of finding that "star" player every team needs to be put over the top. If we took Stauskus or Lavine we would have a "chance" at one of them becoming a stud and putting us over the top. Affalo just makes us a 6th or 5th seed for a couple years at best, IMO

if Staus or Lavine were Really in the conversation of being a "star player"-

 

don't you think they would be talked about being drafted in the top 8??

I haven't even heard anything suggesting that- matter fact- they are being labeled as REACH at #9

most people are on here talking about trading down and picking them up.. you don't trade down to draft a "star player"

 

don't know if im making sense so ill just say this- dont hold your breath to see if Staus or Lavine makes the Allstar team anytime soon

Stauskas' ball handling skills ARE leaps and bounds better than Hendo... Just watch his highlights from Michigan or his pre-draft workouts.

Hendo looks clumsy with the ball and essentially only uses one dribble to elevate for fade-away jumpers...

It's laughable. Stauskas is smooth with the ball.


Being a good ball handler against cones is not the same as being a good ball handler with someone in your jersey.

Those moves you saw him perform don't transfer to the game, just watch his tape. He gets by on his length and decent athleticism.

Um his ballhandling is just fine in game with defenders in his jersey.

Fine yes... leaps and bounds (like that other poster said) ahead of Henderson's... no.

 

One of his weakness (according to DraftExpress) is creating consistently, so obviously he isn't as good of a ball handler as you think he is.

 

If he was a great ball handler he would have no problem at creating a shot for himself consistently.

Staus has no problem creating a shot for himself consistently. 

 

He has a step back J that is unguardable that he can get anytime he wants. 

 

And as I pointed out, his handle might not be leaps n bounds better than Hendo's. It certainly is significantly better, so much so that UM was able to run their offense through Staus as the primary ball handler, distributer, and scorer.

And Hansbrough was unstoppable in college. It means nothing. This guy is slow as molasses and will struggle at the next level. Ceiling for him = Kyle Korver; most likely = JJ Reddick; probably will be just another bust.

Slow? Go and check his combine results to other SGs. 

 

Korver?!? LMAO

Check the tail end of the season... 6 points, 9 points, 11 points, 10 points, then up to 25 points, 21 points etc... If that's not inconsistent then I don't know what is.

As for that step back jumper, guys in the NBA are taller and longer, he needs more than one move if he wants to be successful.

Let's not forget, I like Stauskas but it's stupid to act like he doesn't have any flaws in his game.

^^ Staus is 6'6 with a respectable wingspan. 

 

He will be able to get off that step back J anytime he wants. 

 

To even remotely contest it a defender would have to jump and commit on Staus stepback prior to release allowing Staus to fake the step back and blow by them after the defender leaves his feet. 

 

No one said Staus doesnt have flaws in his game. Not a good defender, not the best athleticism, etc.

For what it's worth, if it came down to us picking at nine Saric or Stauskas would probably be the two I'm looking at.

Neither need a whole lot of time to develop (i.e. Gordon/Vonleh) and neither scream bust (McDermott).

I'm not trying to hate on Stauskas, I just don't see him coming in and averaging 18 ppg as a rookie... 12 seems reasonable.

I dont see Staus averaging 18ppg as a rookie being the 3rd-4th option. 

 

More like 12-15ppg 5assists 40+% from 3

 

With some nights where he goes for 20+

Yes, his numbers were down at the end of the season but he was also double teamed and gameplanned for as the #1 option for Michigan.

 

He doesn't need to be the number one option for us... He needs to be the dead eye shooter he is and spread the floor for Al and Kemba.

 

Stauskas will only get better. People that have played and know basketball know Stauskas> Henderson... Hendo is a 2 guard who cant make an NBA 3 (pre-requisite for being a damn shooting guard) and Stauskas was challenged by Steph Curry to a 3 pt contest (b/c he's lights out). Staus can hit 3's off the dribble, step-backs, crossovers.... Hendo doesn't even have that capability.

 

We need a shooter that can get HOTT.. Literally come down and set the roof off the arena with 4 straight trey balls.... No one on the roster offers that but when you watch the playoffs you see.... Curry get hot... Redick at times... Danny Green... Ariza... Mike Miller... etc.

 

The Hornets need that guy... Who every time he shoots it you think its going in.

 

Also, there is no way Hendo can bring the ball down court and get us into our offense. Stauskas has the ability to bring the ball down the court and let Kemba play off the ball some. He is more than capable of getting us into the offense and has the size and athleticism to guard opposing 2 guards. 

 

Just my opinion. But pure shooter 6'6 with good handle, great work ethic, obsessed with bball > Hendo experiment.... No more fadeaway 15 footers.
