    He rebounds.
    He's athletic.
    He's disruptive on defense.
    He shoots well.

    He's good enough for me and I've grown to love him.

    TROLLS: You are welcome to spew your hate about Clemons here, but know that showers of love are raining down on your statements.

    Ditto. Rare players can overcome a height disadvantage and actually make it in the NBA. His leaping ability and overall athleticism may be enough to compensate for his lack of size. I'm rooting hard for this kid. He's must see TV for me.

    Don't get too attached. His value will be propped up and he'll become part of a mid season trade + future first so we can pick up a valuable piece moving forward like we did last year with Schumpert. (and i'm sure it will work out great just like that did)

    This gives the term 'he is growing on you' in terms of size a whole new meaning.

    He's got a great resume with NCAA, and brought much of it to the summer league. His first 2 pre-season games so far has been very solid performances, and in my opinion he is the most impressive player among the list of potential cuts.

    He has really high bench spark potential.

    He is talented, has no conscience, and confidence to spare. That is a great combination and if he don't make it here he will make it somewhere for sure.

    I dun think he can give you what you expect from the bench - consistent production even if it's just mediocre yet consistent production. Just yet.

    He'll get his numbers for sure. The expectations for a real contender are usually high.

    Yes sir, the dude can play.

    It makes it interesting as we can move some other pieces more flexible per se.

    Could be a mini miniature Westbrook who might shoot better than the original Westbrook.

    His shot reminds me of Eric Gordon’s. Smooth, quick release.

    Ceiling: Isaiah Thomas-Celtics version.
    Floor: Nate Robinson-Knicks version

    I’m very intrigued and I think he will be able to crack the rotation eventually and could play a key role if there are any injuries at the guard position

    That was quick. Early preseason games against the Sharks and the Clippers not much to base "love" on.
