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.
