    I am wondering why folks aren't talking about him more.

    I think he could stick around; he's got potential. He could be the starting PG.

    Maybe the Vipers will sign him but he ain’t staying around and most definitely will not be the starting PG.

    He's going to be cut. Not much to talk about.

    Maybe it was last year but thought he was statistically by some metric literally the worst player in the NBA

    Defense is pretty inconsistent. Rafer-esque shooter. Needs the ball in his hands.

    He was a "second round gem" as a rookie because OKC trotted out a G-League team for a year. He would actually lead the team in minutes.
    Then they drafted better prospects at PG and he got pushed out of the rotation, until more injuries popped up.

    I think its fair to let him compete with TyTy, Nix and Hudgins for bench/RGV minutes but I'm not seeing some hidden starter potential.

    Honestly though, not high on Nix either.

    The starting PG? Really? Drop that blunt immediately because it’s been laced with something potent

    some of y’all just love to hype up scrubs, and I don’t get why

    Never seen him play but his stats don’t look impressive.

    With Fernando off the 2-way seems like an okay tire to kick.

    Maybe maybe no.

    Porter
    Nix
    TyTy

    Already got a PG on a 2-way in Trevor Hudgins (although I suppose they could cut him; not sure they’re going to give both 2W spots to guards; Maledon is younger *shrug*)

    Not a fan. Seems like an easy release to me.

    Ty Jerome > TyTy Washington > Maledon

    People have no idea who Ty Jerome is? He has done far more than Ty Ty
    could ever have dreamed of. College championship.



    GM's just don't want to admit they made a mistake so soon.

    Warriors are going to make Stone look dumb for drafting TyTy over Patrick Baldwin
    and for keeping TyTy Washington over 6'5" Ty Jerome.

    We should have released TyTy instead.

    So Ty Jerome > Daishen Nix > TyTy Washington > Theo Maledon
    Porter-Jerome-Nix, cut TyTy & Theo?

    Warriors are going to make Stone look dumb for doing something he didn’t do!
