    I like what I’ve seen with this kid. He’s young and athletic, run the floor well, and is 6’10”. He was a second rd pick from last year that spent most of season developing his game in the G league where he posted good numbers in scoring, rebounding, and blocked shots. He’s clearly putting time in the gym as he seems much more muscular than his college days. Honestly, if he can use his athleticism to catch lobs from Harden and Westbrook while spelling Capela, then its a good pickup.

    I hope this kid pans out, looks like he is nba worthy player. Nene Replacement. Throw him down to vipers for awhile, calling him up during the season, see how he fairs.

    I too welcome this move. He will benefit from Westbrook's quickness and Harden's passing. He is better than Terrence Jones.

    Direct descendant of the creator of the ball himself.

    So this dude was behind Dragen Bender on the depth chart? Not looking promising

    A player with length, size and speed? We don't need him and have no use for him.

    Well, they said there wouldn't be enough basketballs to go around with Harden and Russ. Now we go out and get Spalding. Now if we can just get Lonzo.

    My thoughts too. This guy looks pretty athletic like Clint. He got some break away speed. Hopefully he can grow to be lock down defender in G-league. I love tucker but he gets owned on the glass.
