    With all the rumblings of Beverley possibly being traded, this doesnt suprise me.

    I expect nothing out of our PG position. Dribble the ball up the court. Play some serviceable defense. Any shooting is bonus; any slashing is fine too. Harden is a ball pounder so play making is not that important.

    Followed him closely while he was a Beaver. Guys, we are lucky he didn't get drafted and absolutely blessed we got to sign him.

    I rate our draft from a D- before this signing to an A+

    GPII is the real deal.

    Just think 2016 Austin Rivers with small flashes of Westbrook.

    I think his defense will be comparable to Bev's. He has the potential to be a better defender.

    I don't expect his offense to improve much. His shooting makes me sad.

    Still like the pickup a lot. He is nearly 24 and should be capable of contributing this year.

    Right now he is better than Bev at everything except shooting. Defense, rebounding, handle, passing. ......He's better than Bev.

    I am down with signing a player to a 3 year team friendly contract.... Especially a guard that scores so well inside, is an excellent rebounder, criminally under rated defender and has improved every single year.

    Exactly who he reminds me of. Nicks downfall is that he never developed a jumper, which was necessary for him to contribute on the offensive end.

    Hope he puts in the time, because below average shooting next to harden won't work.
