    So Clutchfans, can I get a decent opinion on this guy. One that doesn't make him seem more than what he could be. What is his ceiling? Can he actually shoot? Offense/Defense guy?

    He plays like a mix of Tucker and Tate. I was very impressed with how well he used his body to create space. I’m excited he’ll be around. Another lunch pail guy who was filling up the stat sheet without needing plays drawn for him.

    well, when you are the 5th (or is it 8th) player to sign a two-way with one of the worst teams in the league ...

    Nice analogy. Someone said Diaw, then I watched and a different name came to mind. Can't remember now.

    I just watched some clips and he reminds me of a more athletic Scola w/o the footwork.

    Brooks has a contract in New Zealand, I imagine he wants a real NBA contract or he’ll head overseas for more guarantees.


    @ElPigto he can shoot. It’s hard to gauge anything from the GLeague stats but he looked very good and changed the trajectory of the team when they swapped him and Broderic. He seamlessly fit in and was always a positive player. He didn’t get real minutes until they traded him to RGV so just look at those stats.

    I wonder if he just had a good starting streak or something. It's interesting that his last team didn't play him.

    Diaw? That means we'll give him a nice contract in a couple summers and he'll show up camp a fat ten-croissant muhfu**a.

    He played smart regardless of his stats. I hope he pans out.

    That’s different. That was a sacrificial Lamb.

    No miracles this time.

    What I wanted Royce White to be, but is listed as 6'6" ( not 6'8" RW height)
