    He seemed really confident in an interview like he said he'd shoot anytime he was open and had decent hops and would defend several positions. I like that confidence.

    The New Machine? Hopefully not, Sasha hit 3s in practice like nothing but not so good in games.

    He’s much more athletic than Sasha was. You never know how the shooting will translate to the real games, but he has the tools to be a solid NBA bench player, come in and give you some instant offense. His defense didn’t look bad either, he moves very well.

    He'd certainly have the practice squad with us to make life hard out there on the court so if really is good enough or capable of becoming good enough with the fast closing and long limbed NBA defenders our guys should get him there pretty quick.

    We’ve got several great passers. Kids going to get plenty of looks out there.

    He's going to get more time than Wagner. And yeah, he's an NBA player.

    Yeah, the kid is pretty much ready. And, since he can shoot so well, we are going to use him right away.

    I saw only highlights but stroke looks great. No hesitation and a straight line drive.

    He has the range already. It was clear we chose to fix out shooting problem via draft. Everything else via free agency.

    I taped the game and I'm just watching now. Svia looks NBA ready. He'll be a nice addition off the bench. Great shooting touch, good instincts.

    I really like this kid. I can totally seen the Redick comparison. Quick compact stroke and the real nice arc on his J, not too much just right.

    Kid has crazy range. I mean, he is going to make $ome money in the NBA with that shot.

    Svi is bigger than Redick. Svi is 6'6.5" w/o shoes (6'7.75" w/shoes) while Redick is just 6'4" w/o shoes (and somehow only 6'4.5" w/shoes).

    Svi also tested much better vertically. Svi has a 30.5" standing vert and a 37" max vert. Redick has just a 27.5" standing vert and a measly 33" max vert.

    Redick did however test a little better with his agility. Redick's lane agility drill came in at 10.94 and his 3/4 sprint came in at 3.29 seconds. Svi came in at just 11.25 seconds in lane agility, but was faster than Redick with a 3/4 sprint of 3.15 seconds.

    Both of them have weirdly short arms though. :D
