This can't be true.   He's not 6'10"+ and white.

I believe we'll pluck a different shape of trash out of the dumpster this year

Considering this team will continue scrapping for the 8th SWEEP might have to temper that expectation. Miles is projected between 8-11.

But I do like his game, would be grand to replace him with MKG in the starting rotation.

So this may be the homer inside me talking, and I have no idea where he is mocked, but Sindarius Thornwell has played out of his mind this year and is drawing comparisons to Kawhi Leonard. Great defender, rebounds, and can score from anywhere. Has there been any talk about him much?

Zero, he's too small for that comparison.  Kawhi is 6'7-6'8.  This guy is barely 6'5.  Thornwell would be a late second rounder if he left this year, if that.

Okay so not at 11, but are you really stating that 2 inches drops a guy to the bottom of the second round?

In the NBA it makes a massive difference.  It's the difference between being a SG, and a SF.  It's the difference between being able to play two positions, and being able to play one (center & PF).

    • I am as big of a Cam fan as there is, but no he's not perfect. BUT, I will say, in his defense, a good deal of his shortcomings are due in part to offensive scheme and design.  You brought up Brady, whose offense is designed around getting the ball out quick and with timing and letting the receivers make plays.  The biggest complaint on this board since Chud left has been the lack of quick hitting, easy completions created by short, quick routes.  And while I see a lot of articles now about how Cam lacks accuracy on short and intermediate routes, and has ranked as the league worst, at least in 2016, he didn't struggle with such issues under Chud.  Our screens were a lot crisper for one and the routes were more varied and creative.  Furthermore, the last two or three seasons' decline in short and intermediate accuracy coincides with having a receiving corps among the leagues worst in getting separation.  Now, we draft two guys that are quick, fast and can get open in a hurry and overhauled the receiving corps with Shepard and Johnson as well.  I think people are going to see the accuracy problem was more due to scheme and personnel than it was Cam.  If healthy, he's going to have a ridiculous year.
