So youd rather have a good who cant shoot as well, handle as well, pass as well, and defend as well......just because he's 20 pounds heavier?

Gtfo....thats how MKG picks happen

If MKG had a league average jump shot he would be a star.

What are the thoughts on drafting White, letting Kemba walk, and using Kemba's proposed money to sign a starter or two?

White makes more sense if Kemba is gone.  I am not sure about it though.  I think he will need to be a point guard in the NBA not a shooting guard.  Is he up to that task?

There is no "free money" if Kemba leaves.  It would require going over the cap and probably into the luxury task for one year to retain him.  I don't think you want to sign starters at that point anyway.  If Kemba leaves we are full on tanking and minutes will need to go to young draft picks not proven veterans. 

The notion that Kemba walks and we pickup a couple of lower level free agents to replace him and continue to chase the #8 seed is not a good one for me.  I doubt it would work and it would slow down our rebuild.

Most lottery picks are capable of developing an at least average jump shot.  MKG's is/was so bad that it could never be fixed.  I do not want to draft another guy with a shot that bad but that does not mean we should not draft strong athletic players.

the carolinas natives  zion and morant are having the buzz this draft

bit late now but it would have been interesting backcourt solution to have kept Shai and drafted his cousin Nickeil
here is some video of Nickeil, he is playing good comp in the ACC
his form looks good, mature all round game both sides of ball. 
size Shai 6'6'' , Nickeil 6'5''

I was happy to see us draft SGA.  I like Miles too but we might would have been better off to have kept SGA.  Losing Kemba would not sting as much if SGA were waiting in the wings.  We would not have needed Parker with SGA.

A few more wins and we will secure mediocrity for years to come. Pick 12 and average talent here we come.

Shooting was not my point.  White is a smallish two guard similar to Monk.  He has not been as good in college as Monk was.

White is only 185 pounds.  It will take him a good while to be strong enough to compete in the NBA, if he ever does.  We need a strong athletic guy with good size to play next to Kemba.  If we get a lottery pick I do not want to see us spend it on a guy who can't play with Kemba, unless Kemba is gone.  One of Monk's biggest issues is that he can't play beside Kemba.  That is one reason he does not get many minutes.

SGA is a real point guard.  Coby is probably a two guard.  SGA is plenty big for the point.  Coby is smallish for the two guard.

Given how things are ending and the likelihood that Kemba walks none of this matters any more.  Just draft BPA and do not worry about need.

The thing is

The whole reason people wanted to bring him in, was to be able to pair him with Monk or even Kemba.  

For him to guard NBA 2guards because Monk and Kemba were to small to guards a SG

 

So explain to me how a 6'5 185 Coby White is too small to guard NBA SGs but a 6'6 180 SGA is big enough to guard them?   Your making no senses

SGA would play the point and guard other point guards.  SGA is a legit point guard.  Coby has not proven he can play the point at the NBA level which makes him a shooting guard when being evaluated for a lottery pick.  In my mind he is a similar player to Monk and would be redundant for us.
