If we were choosing between drafting a raw player that isn't NBA ready but has potential we'd take Vonleh over Lavine any day.

If we wanted to go NBA ready we'd of taken McDermott over Harris.

LOL @ McDermott over Harris. Harris is going to be a better player than him in the NBA

That mcray guy looking like a top ten pick now.

What's wrong with letting the 18yr old and 21 year old red shirt this year? This team has deep in vet players at each spot and they offer the same skills. PJ needs to work on being a pro, ala his body and off court shaddy stuff. Vonleh is a young man, that needs exp. Both could be solid starters in about 2/3 years if they work hard.

 

You play the best players period. No matter if they are 18 years old or 35.

Vonleh is the worst post player on the team right now....by your own logic, he should sit.

 

Now, PJ could and should get some decent playing time coming off the bench.

That sounds right. They don't look ready and we have vets that can contribute. As the season progresses I could see them get more minutes but Vonleh is very raw and will take time and PJ needs to work on D and not to mention he has 3 vets in front of him so I don't see neither getting minutes this year barring injury.

I don't see why so many people think PJ is going to get a lot of minutes. Yes he played in the D league last year but he has no NBA regular season experience. The signing of Lance puts him even deeper in the depth chart. I wouldn't be surprised if he is inactive because we don't need 4 SG.

harris is a better defender, more athletic and better driving, has a good jumps hot as well. McDermott will have to live off of drive and kicks from rose to be successful

What wrong with letting them redshirt? Nothing. People are impatient, that's the problem. You rarely draft an 18 year old in this day and age expecting them to start in their first or second season. PJ obviously needs to control his maturity issues. We drafted two potential stars. Their just not going to be stars this season. Anyone who watched the Summer League should be highly impressed with the skill and development they saw from Hairston and Vonleh. People get upset and impatient when we draft a player who isn't going to be an immediate impact player.


Yes we live in a microwave era and this is a football forum. Fans here just need to addin what happens with baseball/hockey rooks, rather than football model alone. Both have skills rare skills, but it may take a couple years to show. Given there are 48 mins per game( - ot ) , lance should get 30+, hendo 10 ( sg only) and neal 8 ........ well no need for PJ unless you need to build a house of bricks. Vonleh, is not a 18 year old, he's already a man. Geez with all the growth hormones put into foods, between him, kevin " special k", and the 300 lbs high school OL these kids skip the teens years. If each put in real work, could be one special draft class.

I had to leave the restaurant biz, due to impatient people. Many years ago a change happen, people went to sit down restaurants and wanted fast food. It just bugged the shiit out of me, you had to turn 8 min tickets (unless well done/special orders), cause people wanted it NOW and corp had to apdat. So then came the frozen crap and cooking nearly everything, warm and serve. Yuck...... if you want fast food go to chick-fila. I understand this during lunch times, I had a problem when it became dinner too. Now even five star place are doing similar tactics. No idea what happen to relaxing and enjoying a nice non-frozen/warmed dish. O the horrors... I mean joys of being a old soul in this generation.

Agree if the season starts today or in one month -

Lance, hendo, neal are better than PJ.

Bi.....hm mm biz, al zeller, FA big, mkg are better than vonleh.

Could change during the year, but im going to give these two 2 preseasons, 1offseason, and 82+( playoffs nigga!) THEN see if PJ made it without any police reports, improved D, made a nba body and improve shot %. Vonleh may need another, hell he could grow to 7'+, hes just very raw, a great ewing project.

PJ is the least viable SG on the roster and I'm a huge PJ homer.

Even with my hate for Hendo he isn't less skilled than Neal.

Way too early to make a statement like that. Wont know for sure until mid season and that is with PJ getting enough consistent minutes to make a proper evaluation.
