    Love that attitude...38% from 3, can block shots, 7'6' wingspan; a project, but I can't say I mind the pick at 42...

    So is Black now gone? That's 3 centers not counting our pfs when we go small.

    He should wear #8 and momentarily confuse the opponent.

    I don't see why he'd be gone yet. We can just stash Bryant in the G-League for a while. Black could still be thrown into a trade as an easy way to shed 6 million dollars.

    Lopez won't be around very long. I like Black. I'd hate to see him leave.

    True, and of the 3, Black is the only decent Center we have who can guard the perimeter effectively...

    I can already tell I'm going to love the energy, tenacity, and physicality Thomas Bryant plays with. Gets excited easily too when making hustle plays



    Rob in his presser tonight said that during his workout they were so impressed with his conditioning and ability to do guard drills

    Here's his dribble and shoot final Lakers drill. Really raw and carrying the ball at times with his dribble. Maybe Lamar if he's there and Coby can help that in the G league. Needs it. Nice to hear he can hit 3s. He's 1st up in the clip below. Don't think the press got an interview with him that day.

    All three come across as intelligent, quality young men.
