another awful ft shooter. pass!

seriously, wtf is going on. Anyone in any gym can hit 60% fts. these nba dudes are pathetic. and why are we collecting them all? We have the king of the worst shooters, and all the worst shooting minions in the league all collected on one team. We're trying to do the opposite of the warriors...get all the worst shooters.

lets give this guy respect !!

really playing well

his defense when he switched on curry for a play in the 1st quarter was impressive...almost Randle like

like offensive rebounds..etc

I really like this find..hes going to be quality for us

Undrafted Rookie, 23 years old, played for Gonzaga the last 4 years -- which has been a good run for program

dude averaged 13 & 8.

dude had a 39 +12 game just last Nov against Florida

Should we not be semi-intrigued by him as a backup 5? Okay, maybe not semi-intrigued, but quarter-intrigued?

Nope.

JW3 was Jordan Clarkson's teammate as a freshman at Mizzou, started every game with him in 2013-14. He left Missouri after his sophomore season amid the turmoil of impending sanctions, and a new coach.

The coach who recruited him had already left for Tulsa after his freshman year; the replacement coach (a Missouri legend) couldn't develop anyone and struggled to find lineups that worked. JW transferred to Gonzaga, and came back a year later stronger and more efficient, albeit in a weaker conference.

Although he hit 40% from 3 as a Junior, it was on one attempt per game. The lack of volume and his mechanics from that range indicate the NBA 3 won't be in his repertoire. Probably headed to the G-League, though we are thin at the 5...and Caruso/Wear won't get much time with our depth. Maybe a 2-way deal?

Bad move, he could have been another Dwight Powell clone, now another team will pick him up and he will end up becoming a good role player.

Shame. I thought he could give the team a good 10 minutes at the 5.

Kind of an athletic Tarik Black role.

Shaq was at the game the other night. Williams hired him to be his free throw coach.

I would want him on the two-way instead of Caruso.

I liked Williams but how are we going to play another 6' 9" guy with center skills but forward height? We would have made more of an effort to keep Randle if that were the case. Bottom line... if he could shoot, he'd be a keeper.

I think this means we will get Noah.

I think it means we go with Zubac, Wagner, and small ball fives.

Can't shoot. Average at best rebounder. Slight frame for a C. Not exceptional athletically. Already 23. Did not show out in SL.

Needs a skills trainer to make over his game. I just don't see NBA talent.
