    If nothing else, the dude is capable of shooting over 40% from 3. A guy who can spread the floor like that can help a lot on a stacked team like the Spurs.

    Only $50k guaranteed. Simmons got $500,000 as an undrafted player.

    Jimmer is going to look like Kyle Korver when he gets playing time.

    Like another poster said, Spurs turn turds into diamonds, who promptly become turds again when they leave SA.

    Jimmer on his best day can only hope to look like Korver's jockstrap. I'd be surprised if Jimmers makes the final cut when the regular season starts.

    yes and yes, the only place Jimmer looks like a star is in a JCC after work league playing against lawyers and doctors. He can shoot, too bad he is slower than a slug.

    If Pop can make Patty Mills look good, Jimmer is set to have a JJ Reddick like season.

    Screen -- Screen -- 3.

    Mills is quick though, he can play defense.. It will be interesting to see how they play D with Jimmer on the court, i suspect they will hide him like they do with Parker.

    That's a smart signing. They know how to utilize shooters.
