I know he's got a freaky wingspan, but didn't realize he was that short. He struck me as a younger Crowder type player who is only 6'6".

7’1 wingspan

but not really a great defender with that wingspan.

maybe Monty can coach him up, but the hype just doesn’t match what’s on paper. If he wasn’t Lebrons boy and played in Orlando would he even be on the radar

hes 6’4 shooting guard who shoots 77% from the line and 28% from 3.

doesn’t really do anything great.

He is a small forward, and he is a great finisher.

Also a pretty good defender with his long arms.

He may not be a great shooter yet, but he is very young and is very likely to improve.

It doesn't matter if Talen Horton-Tucker plays ahead of anyone at the moment. Pretend he was the BPA in the draft. He is only 20.

yeah you can look at it like that just depends how much you want to give him. We still need another guy that can legit get his own shot

Call me crazy but I think Derozan is coming here.

So we would honestly play a 6'4" small forward next to a 6'6" power forward?

Isn't that taking Mike D'Antoni style small ball to an extreme?

If DeRozan is signing anywhere for the MLE, it is with one of the L.A. teams.

Atleast you havent posted the Booker is dissatisfied with Phoenix and will be a Laker soon. That and the Cam cant get his shot off in the NBA are my faves

You’re crazy.

I’d love for you to be right because getting another VERY good shot maker/creator for others would be huge for that second unit.

But you’re crazy for thinking he’s coming here for the money we can offer.

I like the pickup of McGee, and of course getting the CPs back. Losing Craig hurts some - he was the kind of energy guy off the bench that we really didn't have enough of.

Horton Tucker is intriguing - he seems to have some potential, but you also have to wonder why the Lakers don't see it in him after two years there. He looked good in a couple games against us in the playoffs. I can see him as a younger replacement for Moore, with more upside.

But we still need to be looking at another big man. Someone who can fit in along side Ayton in some lineups. That's not really McGee.

@cheesebeef

I think you were asking about this earlier.
