Damn. I hope not. McDermott could score in college, no doubt. But like many, I'm not sure how he's going to transition to the pros. I guess he would at least be that perimeter scorer that we need, and maybe if Clifford can scheme around Al Jefferson on defense, he can scheme around McDermott's defensive issues too.

Sounds like little more than speculation if anything.

He was a part of the thug-a-nomic Creighton team that tried to hurt Henson and succeeded at breaking Marshall's wrist. no thanks. I hate him for just being on that team, plus I don't think he's capable of scoring the way he did in college and he's not that quick so his defense is suspect. Maybe @24, but NOT @9.

Not at the top of my list but I wouldn't hate the pick. Depends on who is there. I don't want another developmental big man. 

 

Positives: He is a proven scorer in a variety of ways. Can really shoot from 3, would help expand spacing on the court. Is very good coming off screens and shooting quickly. Willing to post up and has ability to use both hands on hook shots with multiple post moves and fakes. Has a good fade away shot (looks much like Dirk with leg kick) to help make space on post spin jumper. High effort guy that works hard. Good size at 6'8"

 

Negatives: Athleticism and defense are the obvious problems that cannot be overlooked. Very low steal rate is troubling. Can he defend at NBA level? Can he create space on offense to get his shot off without screens. Still a questionable ball handler even though it has improved a lot since his first college years. 

 

I am not sure what he could translate into, at worst I see Kyle Korver and I could live with a great sharpshooting SF/PF to come in off the bench and space the floor.

I have no idea how his game will transition to the NBA.  No doubt he can score/shoot, but can he create his own shot and defend an NBA small forward?

 

Probably just a smokescreen, or a reverse-psych smokescreen where we really do pick him.

So what you are saying is we're either going to draft him or we're not.

As for Chad Ford, he basically hyped MKG into being drafted 2nd two years ago, so screw him.

He blocked me because I told him Henderson wasn't as good as he thought he was.

Well waddaya know...
