    We need another Nwaba type of find from a defensive standpoint. All hustle, all energy, and commitment to being a stopper.

    Nothing new, just a new source. Same idea that anyone who has seen him play a couple times has of him.

    I want to be positive about the signing, but he doesn't bring any much-needed floor spacing to our backcourt.

    I feel like we needed more playmaking and spacing than defense tbh.

    I only have one question when we are (thinking about) signing "small guys" - can he shoot?

    Maybe Payton II can play the point with the second unit. Ennis does not impact the game...Caruso is a mixed bag at this level.

    I liked some things and I hated others. His defense was not at all what I would have hoped for, but his offense was much better than I hoped for. Still somewhere in the C- range, but with some room to grow.

    I certainly thought more of him than Ennis and Caruso who both look like Fs.

    I thought Payton did more on the court today than the other two combined. I was thinking just leave him in he rest of the game. Couldn’t stand to watch the other two a moment more. Glad Luke thought the same.
