I'm just glad we have a new toy to play with.
Yep, we blast the front office constantly but this kid was a steal. Even if he never amounts to much I bet there are a lot of GMs kicking themselves for passing on him in the second round.
He is EXPLOSIVE!
How do these two way contracts work? He wouldnt count toward the 12 man roster? Can he be signed away? Whats the duration of those contracts?
Probably the smart move but I will say he looks alot better than okobo
I don't think Jalen has been signed to a two-way contract. He has been signed to a regular contract. The roster rules changed a while back. It is now a 15 man roster, but only 13 can suit up for a game. Plus each team gets 2 two-way contracts, so they can carry a total of 17 players.
He got 4 years 2 guaranteed.
He’s a LOT bigger and more athletic. But I don’t think he’s a point guard.
Yep. Combo guard maybe. Most likely a two-way Sg, which is quite valuable.
He comps out to Westbrook. If he can become Westbrook with a jumper then I don't care what you label him.
I don't know if he'll amount to anything in the league but I think he's as good of a prospect as anyone we could have selected at #32. Being able to sign someone young like Lecque makes up for dumping our 2nd round pick this year. I know we can debate whether we had to give up our 2nd round pick to move TJ but the deal's done regardless.
I do question how he'll fit this season since we've got plenty of backup PG's now but I imagine we'll keep at least 1 down in the G-League at almost all times. I did like that about Jones running the team last season. He didn't keep Okobo or Melton wasting away on our bench much at all. He made sure that if they weren't going to play on the main roster that they were assigned to the G-League team, which is how it should be with our youngsters.
His springy athletic ability is really impressive, even in the NBA very few guys have that bouncing up and down ability. But, that alone isn't enough to get by I am not going to put any expectations on him. Hopefully he works his butt off in the Gleague this year.
It’s about his shooting. We have heard that before. He must improve that. Otherwise he is going to “comp out” to Archie.
Signing Jalen Lecque was well worth the gamble based on his raw potential being off the charts. He looks like he belongs on an NBA court.
We really do not know how good he can become having never played college and only being 19 years old.
I do not understand how he went undrafted in the second round.
Archie was athletic but this kid is explosive, much quicker. And yeah, guards that can't shoot are no bueno.
The thing about Lecque, he is a point guard unlike Archie. Unfortunately Archie couldn't shoot the ball and wasn't a passer either.
If Lecque can shoot the ball for a decent average he reminds be somewhat of De'Aaron Fox.
In college Fox could always get to the rim which is initially what caught my eye. Lecque should always be able to get to the rim with his speed and athleticism so hopefully the other parts of his game com together. Also Lecque seems to be a solid free throw shooter so this may say something about his ability to shoot the ball.
Separate names with a comma.
