    I was hoping he would entry draft this year, but he decided to return for his sophomore season. He is the player to watch next year. I'm very high on him :cool:

    He is 20 years young Maryland freshman. His measurments were great in the draft combine, here they are:

    Doesn't it look alike?
    Kawhi Leonard

    It's a just a coincidence tho & it doesn't mean he would be any close to what Kawhi Leonard is right now. But I like it. The main thing I liked first of all is his shooting and how smart of a player he is on the court, and with the media. He sounds very mature & it seems like he has very high basketball IQ, go along with his work ethic.

    He has shot 43.8% this season on a 3.2 attempts per game from behind the arc. He has some work to do with his shot selection, he is not consistent enough offensively, but he is very young & should improve next year in NCAA.





    He is late first rounder in most 2018 mocks right now, but I believe his stock would rise during the season.

    Rough start for this guy. But if he falls to our range, we should definitely take him.

    Welp, finally, at least there's a video of him shooting. He looks huge for a small forward in this clip.

    Ariza is listed at 6'8, 218 pounds per google for comparison.
    So yeah, he's slightly shorter and 10 pounds heavier. Not quite T H I C C but thick...
