    This. He has a ton of potential but he needs more reps than he will get in the main squad next to guys like Wall/Green/Gordon/Wood who are better scorers and will get all the touches.

    Let him practice playmaking and shooting in the g league and bring him up after Wall/Gordon are gone.

    I think all 4 of them can. Garuba's defense will get him some time. He looked very active in the olympics.

    Will be in the G-league - needs to work on his shot, but he has major defensive potential.

    man, if josh can become a 40 percent 3 point shooter, he can become an all-star. i like the comparisons to wade. hell, he's only 19 years old, why not superstar. i can't believe we are getting someone like him that low in this draft, this class is stacked. His defense looks all-nba on the perimeter, he's got quick Fn feet man. strong enough to not be bullied in the post. good handles, good midrange.....just need that 3 ball to come. man oh man.

    This class is like some Freakin dream. i think we can become the next okc thunder with durant, the next up and coming dynasty. we just need to somehow keep all these players under the cap. holy ****, what if we get another stud in next years draft. i have not been this excited to be a rockets fan since the dream days.

    He's looked better than I expected. Draft class looking good in 2 SL games.

    if he wants to come join them when he's a free agent I'd allow it.

    7 assists vs. Pistons.

    Kid is raw but his growth from SG to PG could take a Porter like trajectory.

    Maybe some time in G League as PG would not be bad.

    Nwaba will be an excellent mentor for him, if you can finish and play D you belong in the league.
