Quick Toughts on Summerleague

Anthony Randolph will be a great player, he has star written al over him. ( looks stronger now also) 16ppg and 8rpg wont be a far reach for him

Blake Griffin will have his offense going in the nba, projection 16 ppg 9 repg 2.5 assist

Brandon J will be a great player in a year or two, he just needs experience, his quickness is an elite level.

Austin Daye Played better than Durants first summerleague, in fact he played better BKB than he did in College. ( if he can fill out a bit will be great)

Nick Young Appears as a SG starter now.

Summers and Jerebko Looks like draft steals

Blair is definitely a steal, crash the boards hard and will score some on NBA level

Budinger appears to have excellent shot selction (or a very good luck)

Derozan Looks More confortable on an NBA setting than he did in college, ( needs to work on his shot )

Curry appears a volume shooter( some bad shot selection), his FG% will be low this season

Harden is definetly a nba ready player and will fight for ROY

Thabeet .. Where is his supreme shotblocking? However he did alter many shots

McGee appears ready to contribute more minutes for the Wiz.

Mullens and Ibaka looks ready to play some garbage time

Special thanks to Rubio for playing hard in the at the wolves Point.

I agree

But do you think the Wiz will start Young over Foye or Mike Miller?

sory forgot about orlando

Speights had one rellay good game, but looks a solid backup behind Brand. (smooth)

Hasborough plays hard, shoots well for a big and will help the Pacers bench alot (Red bull guy)

Roy Hibbert has developed good offensive moves, however he must work on his rebounding.

Maynor dindt shine because of lack of talent surrounding him, but he can have some minutes behind DW with a more talented and real NBA players.

Bebuois looks like a nice PG, ( fast, Atheltic and long) he needs experience but he can thrive with more talented teamates

Flynn looks better than lawson running the point, he just needs experience to turn down turnovers

I think

Nick Young is going to be better than Foye. They should let him start, because Arenas and Foye would be an undersized backcourt. And Arenas, even though he isnt a true PG, is better than Randy Foye at that spot.

despite the fact that Nick

despite the fact that Nick young hasnt met a shot he doesnt like, he does not have the ability to create his own shot.. FOYE DOES... i do agree foye / arenas are worse back court than arenas / Young, but i think Foye has higher ceiling than Young. Foye has also been in crappy situation since entering lg..

Undersized?

Both Arenas and Foye are 6-4... The problem with that tandem is that their both combo guards, and neither are true PG's. However the starting backcourt shakes out for the Wiz though, as long as Arenas is healthy, it should be very good.

maybe

maybe miller at SG? he's done it plenty of times in his career. having arena's at PG and miller at SG would work...

haywood
jamison
butler
miller
arena's The backcourt will score like crazy.

Higher Ceiling

Foye definitely has the higher ceiling, he's been paired up with terrible backcourt players in Minnesota, Telfair, McCants, come on, how is somebody supposed to excel in that sort of situation. I bet we'd be saying completely different things about Brandon Roy if the TWolves would have taken him over Foye.

that lineup

also gives size in the backcourt. miller at 6'8 could either be a burden or a big help depending on the team.

I didnt

He may have a role, but it shouldnt be more than 10-15 minutes a game. He needs more tools offensively and to play more aware on D.

^^^ Thank you

Those are the opposite of the truth. But Ty Lawson pretty much reminds me of Anthony Carter, I wouldnt want him as my starter.
