Good enough for me. If he can catch and shoot and create his own shot with those accuracy numbers then why not draft him? Are the only negatives his college competition and skin color? We need a scorer. He's a coaches son so I assume Clifford can coach up his D. What is the argument against him?

He returned for his Sr year to work on his defense, and he was vastly improved. People don't want him because he's white. They'll list other reasons, but it's because he's white. Just read all the comments where they talk about random white players, who he is absolutely nothing like.

IMO, his bottom floor is a 6th man role player who can average 12-15 points with minimal touches. His ceiling is a #2 option who will space the floor for the primary and average 20-24 points per game. He's that good. It's just impossible to know how he'll translate. But he definitely has the offensive skill set to be a legit scorer and all star. He will not be a bust with his offensive game.

He's probably not quick enough to guard 3s and he's too small to guard 4s. He's not a great rebounder and he isn't a great ball handler. But he's a deadly offensive scorer. Quite frankly, he reminds me a lot of Melo. He's a scoring machine. Only he's much more efficient.

McDermott is an efficient scoring monster. MKG-McDermott would be a hell of a lot better than Hendo-MKG.

In college.

So will McDerm be able to create his own shot in the NBA or what? I have NEVER seen the dude play. I heard Jay Billas say he is a great athlete and understands the game. On an island will he be able to take somebody off the dribble and score?

No.

We would get absolutely destroyed on the boards and have horrible runs on defense.

So a weak, 6'8 at best McDermott is going to play "PF"? Oh, sure.

 

And don't give me that "stretch 4" nonsense. He can't play that either, not at a starter's level.

History says tweeners fail 80% of the time in the NBA or produce at a bench level player.

Get true size at their natural positions... McD is too small to play his natural PF position. His post game is under the basket flip shots that will meet his face in the NBA.

Plenty of size in this draft and shooters at natural positions to pass on MCD.

Clifford already said McBuckets is a SF for sure
