Is Dajuan Summers a sleeper?
I did not see him play much, but he shot 40 percent from three and is 6ft8 at the forward spot. I looked at how he performed against the elite in the big east, and 20 plus verse everyone except T-will. He only averaged 13 what could mean he might not play hard enough. Is that true or is he the product of the system? Jeff green did not score a lot at Georgetown either, he averaged more this past season in the NBA. What do you guys think?
I saw this team have its moments early in the big east. He definitely has some skills and great athleticism, but he never really seemed to put everything together in a way that benefited his team, like Green did. He seemed to content in shooting threes and running the break. Additional post moves and ball handling skills are a must, along with more intensity on both ends of the court.
With out a doubt I see where you are coming from labeling him as a potential sleeper, because he definitely has all the skills necessary to make it in the NBA, and Thompson's system may have inhibited him. Though not on the same level, remember how R. Gay did not seem to have the mentality coming out of Uconn to be a star?
They said he lacked the killer instict, but he is doing his thing in the NBA. Yeah he is not on Gays level, but could potentially be pretty good for the 30th pick in the draft.
There sleeping on him but he will put up stats that are identical 2 those that Jeff Green put up this past season by his 2nd year. They are pretty much the same player (or grade out 2 be the same type of players) at the NBA level
you can't base production off points because they play a slow methodical princeton-style offense
While Green and Summers have similar physical make ups, they are slightly different players. Athletically, summers is superior, and he is also a slightly better shooter. Green on the other hand, was a far better ball handler. He was also a good distributor and better defensive player. In the intangibles, Green was also the better Hoya, as he was a leader for his team who took charge of the team, even going out side of the Princeton offense, when his team needed him to.
he could be a sleeper,he's got nice shooting touch but for some reason he struggles with shooting at times,he's got nba athleticism and size that makes him a good slasher and solid defensive player,his handling is really not that good which makes him a liability of the bounce sometimes,he never really got it going at g'town,but he definitely showed flashes of brilliance,he even dominated at times,but overall he was incosistent,also i think hoyas offense held him down and he played out of his position at power forward too much,he has all the makings of an nba sf and his potential at the nba level is encouraging,he needs to refine his offense and rebound more,but should be fine
