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+

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.

 

 

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.

How many times did you say you wanted Adam Morrison?

I believe Harris has exposed his struggles on defense.

I'm waiting on the team to bring in Saric for a work out.

I am as well. I'm wondering if we have a day set up solely for power forwards with Saric, Vonleh, Randle, McDermott, and Gordon coming in.

We did something similar at the small forward position when we brought in Early, Antetokounmpo, Fair, Daniels, and Robinson coming in.

Stauskas said that he's only working out for the Lakers, Celtics, Suns, and Hornets.

This was also Stauskas' first workout

He said he's confident that one of those teams will take him.
