    I have no clue who he is, but I've learned to trust our scouts.

    Welcome back Rock! Haven’t seen you in awhile!

    Anyway, this guys kinda reminds me of PJ Tucker. Short, stout (235 lbs at 6’4), but has a massive wing span at 7’1 which apparently worked to his advantage defensively. Heard he’s strong too and can defend 1-4, so very PJ-esque.

    He can handle the ball and get to the rim, and improved his outside shot.

    I like it.

    Nice pick. Klutch, some might say.

    Thanks lakerfan2, just wanted to pop my head in a little bit during the summer break. Tucker is a good comparison.

    Thanks for posting the video. Looks like he will slide right into the Josh Hart role on the team.

    Tucker with MUCH better handles. Hopefully the rest of his game can match up.

    Let's just hope he isn't booking bottle service in the 3rd quarter like Clarkson.

    Really interesting prospect. If he develops a consistent outside shot he can be a top 10 talent from this draft.
