    We picked him up not too long ago, and there was only one mention of him in a thread by somebody earlier. lol. I was going to start a thread after not finding a thread about him, but didn't want to jinx his rise to superstardom. :D He is the true successor to the title of "son of Kevin Martin".

    I'm more intrigued about BT than I am about Jae'Sean Tate.

    Excellent, very switchable and disruptive.

    6'5 with 6'11 wingspan, similar height and length as Harden and Tucker.

    But BT has much better hops.

    Wow he does look exactly like Kevin Martin. Could it be possible that we signed both Kenyon Martin's heir and Kevin Martin's bastard at the same time?

    i was high on AG all offseason until i checked some games of his this past weekend. no longer impressed. he's got nice size and can be a dunking machine, but bball skills wise and shooting wise has a lot of holes in his game. otto's a good fit w/ our backcourt though

    I don't get one thing. If all those noname guys are so great, excellent shooters, defenders etc why they wasn't drafted/signed yet? Or are they just ok shooters, respectable defenders? I mean Steph Curry is excellent shooter, Kawhi is excellent defender and so on. Or are they really great but on college level and still don't have tactical awareness/physical talents to be good in NBA

    edit: or maybe they are that good with whole team built around them which will never happen in the NBA unless you have all-time talent? Real question with these guys is how they gonna play without ball in their hands and as a role players who have 5 shots a game

    AG's skillset would be better fit on Rockets than Magic. 5 out system gives him much more space to attack and his ball handling/playmaking is better than Jeff Green's.

    Think a younger more explosive better defending Jeff Green.

    AG is also another big that can defend Lebron/AD.

    Looks to be an excellent wing defender. No so much down low. Wastes very little energy. Picks good positions to be in. Forces defenders to make mistakes with his quickness to get to where they offensive player wants to be. A little skinny but you can hide him on a wing even if they like to drive. Should probably focus on gaining strength (not bulking up).


    When he has to defend two players out on the weak side... reminds me of Ariza guarding 2 players at once. He's quick.
