    Sure, he has work ahead of him. But its purely a guess as to how fast he can learn.
    At least he doesnt have bad habits to unlearn as well as in JG.

    It isn't a guess. We've all seen it and the coaches see him every day. He's a round ball of clay right now. Not even close to ready. Doesn't understand team basketball.

    But ultimately got drafted to the right situation.

    But when the guy you have is awful at defensive assignments and rotations, why not give Cam some of those minutes to attempt to improve?

    Projecting a future outcome is always a guess :)

    Probably not, but they aren't just going to give up on Jalen at this point.

    Yeah, Roosh made a great point that is like changing the QB once you do it, there is no going back......Cam can still develop some in the GLeague and learn team first ball.

    So he can pass now !! His individual defense is good. Only question is team defense. Like that we have a coach assigned to him when he plays for the Vipers. Looking forward to seeing him in a blowout. Hopefully when we are winning

    I haven't been watching the games. How's his defense looking? I see he's putting up numbers, but I don't really care about that. Daishen Nix put up absurd numbers in the G League. I want to hear that he's doing the things he has to do for Ime to give him minutes.

    Jalen would have to get injured for Cam to get minutes. Hes the only real backup sg on the roster.

    I remember him averaging over 25. perhaps I'm mistaken.

    They are sending him back to the Gleague for more work.....I think he takes Green's spot if things continue as they are...

    Maybe he had a 25 point game but I did find those averages....in 2021 if that was the year.
