    lol his motor. What is it a 4 cylinder maybe a v6? Like I said he needs to focus on defense and rebounding. Those things take effort if he plays with effort he will help us.

    Maybe he could achieve 10% makes with that amount of repetition.

    This! It would have been nice for him to get some time in Orlando and Vegas. Guess we were looking at other options or didn't think he was ready. RGV next year and maybe the year after as well.

    It's a dream to him well he will suck for at least a year will most likely come in weak and docile and end up playing ignorantly and young.

    The guy is 20 yrs old. He is really excited so he might work harder than ever before. The physical talent is there for defense. Time will tell. We might be seeing a potential defensive all star. Offense may never be there. Maybe a Dennis Rodman lite type?

    Need the Chucky Brown type of player on the team. I would be happy with that.

    Love how Clutchfans isn't even giving the kid a chance. Do people not believe in Morey's drafting skills anymore?

    he needs to bulk up and get a lot of DLeague experience

    Not sure I've ever seen a fan base get this negative about such a high upside rookie prospect. Especially coming off a year where the Greek Freak happened.

    Get a grip folks. Yes he's going to start down in the DLeague . Yes he's going to be raw. But his career isn't over before he ever steps on the floor.

    International prospects like this are very decieving in these YouTube scouting reports. Why don't we all just settle the F down, be happy that there is actually someone coming through the Rockets system with TRUE upside, and they are still able to be a competitive team at the same time.

    solid by him to get the full 120% and good on him for wanting to come straight over to the NBA.

    This kid is growing on me for sure after looking at all the solid success stories that seem to be coming out of this draft

    Because the moment someone gets it in the NBA and becomes a player Morey is going to try to lowball him or trying to trade him for picks or that "star player".

    It is rather sad but I think Morey has to change his view substantially.
    He got no patience and no results to show either.
