    He plays a lot like Tate, moves very well without the ball...cuts baseline... has a nice handle. I can see him spelling or playing next to Wood

    We said we needed some length and shooting. here he is. Give the kid a chance to show what he has. We rebuilding so we will be giving a lot of guys changes to show what they can do. We will need solid rotation pieces so maybe he fits that need and can develop more in our system. He looks the part (long, athletic, guards multiple positions, can handle the ball, very active, and can shoot it). Im looking forward to seeing him play. Maybe this allows us to go ahead and move PJ for some more assets.

    With so many injuries, I guess Rod will get some time against SAS and we'll get a glimpse of what we got.

    If he didn't have that checkered past, I'd be a lot more excited about him.

    Great shooter.

    great size. 6-9 with a 7-2 wingspan

    22.

    plus defender.

    As a player, I don't see why he can't do everything that Duncan Robinson can.

    I like him as well, adding to your observations above...
    - Can handle the ball and has some playmaking skills as well

    I really think he just needs some more playing time and given how beat up we are its too bad he'll not get any run today.

    I’m almost certain he’ll get in the game today at some point. He’s only one of 8 available players.

    Meh. He did a thing once. I'm sure many will clutch pearls about it, but mistakes happen.

    I watched him his rookie year some and he showed potential. By all accounts last year he regressed.
