    2 months from now...

    22pts from Green,
    20pts from KPorter,
    23 pts from Wood.
    7pts, 5 decimating screens and 4 manly fouls from Theis
    12 pts and outstanding switching defense from Tate.
    That's around 82 points from the starters

    We so excited.

    Crazy to think they are still kids. No training and strength condition ****. It’s about to get scary. Love it.

    Mobley looked good imo. The summer league is dominated by fringe guards trying to make the team, but he looked good when he was aggressive. I'm sure they'll make it a point too feature him more going forward.

    Green looks special tho.

    Stone nailed these picks.

    JC was the big head-scratcher for a lot of us but he’s shown why we decided to take a chance on him. Love his competitiveness, defensive effort, finishing around the rim and his willingness to push the ball. Hate his tunnel vision and shot selection. Jury is still out on his catch-and-shoot abilities.

    Sengun was as advertised. Super smart, super skilled, just a little slow. I love his ability to create advantages in the post to finish himself or look for the open man. I definitely see the Scola comparisons. I think his defense is much better than Kanter’s so I think he’ll be playable in key moments. I’m not sure if he’ll ever be a starter for a high level team but he is definitely a career NBA player.

    No need to deep-dive on Green anymore than what has already been said. We’re lucky we found a player with his combination of actual talent/skill and intrigue. We’ll be back on the national TV schedule pretty soon. He definitely is a star.

    I just hate that when he gets the ball
    he’s not passing it. He’s a black hole offensively.

    Sengun was the MVP of the Turkish league. His experience shines through for sure.

    JC was great when the ball wasn’t in his hands.

    Give him the ball going on a fast break, let him be distributive on defense and hope his catch and shoot improves.

    At 24, he looks like good value.

    For all 3 of our rookies to show what they did today was super impressive.

    Sengun may never be super athletic and JC might be early in his development, but both guys did a lot of promising things. Sengun looks like he's going to be one of our best passers from day one, and is already an excellent rebounder and screen setter. He'll finish more gimmes going forward. Anyone hating on Christopher is silly, nearly every 19 year old SG is going to take some errant shots in Summer League. His instincts and effort on defense were impressive, and his one on one ability on O is high-level. Just keep improving the shot selection and his 3-ball and we have something great there as well.

    And Green was Green. Even better than expected.

    I’m very excited to see Cade play.

    I’m very happy with us getting Jalen, but you just know Cade is going to be very special as well.

    I agree. This is why im so happy with the way Sengun played.. We know how these knuckleheads play in summer, and being a low post scorer, it's hard to carve out a place on the court. Sengun was thriving.. What will Al-P look like when he plays with players with brains??

    Lets make the OKC fans sick after we kept our pick this year and Sengun plays very well! Will be even better if the protected picks we gave them for Sengun does not materialize in a while
