Where Players Would Excell

Is anyone tired of hearing about how guys would excell playing for the Knicks, Warriors, or the Suns? To be honest, most players in the NBA would excell in a system where no defence was required and they could shoot all day. So instead of saying that Brandon Jennings or Steph Curry would fit with these teams, Who, in the draft, would not excell in a free flowing offence with little to no demand for defence?

Just to get it started. Who else??

Jrue Holiday and terrence williams

Holiday and T-will would not work in these offenses very well. Both these players need to build off their defense at first in the league to let their offense develope. With that free flowing offense they would most likely get shot crazy and throw up way to many 3s ala durant his first year but he learned this year.

Half Court vs. Full Court

So, basically you're asking who would thrive in a half court minded team, as opposed to a full court minded team.

Half Court Players:

James Harden
Tyreke Evans
Eric Maynor
DeJuan Blair
Terrence Williams
Tyler Hansbrough
Sam Young
Toney Douglas
Omri Casspi

I think that a couple of the players you included would still thrive in an up-tempo system

Tyreke Evans and Toney Douglas

About Evans, Douglas

Evans would have to find a shot to be in a full-court offense. That Missouri game is going to be a little deceiving in evaluating Evans because he needed to score points in bunches, and Mizzou didn't wanna start hacking. Most of the time, surprisingly, that Memphis team slowed the ball down, and let their guards penetrate. I think he'd fair much better with a half-court philosophy.

As for Douglas, he is the perfect triangle PG, a half-court offense. With his ability to hit tear drops and spot up 3s, he'd thrive in a place like LAL. The knock on Douglas is his inability to be a great passer. Therefore, in a full-court philosophy, he'd be best served as a SG, and turn into another Marcus Banks.
