I like him. Watched him a few times this past season during UNR’s hot start and closely against USC at Galen. Imposes his will with his wide/muscular frame when he takes it to the basket, draws plenty of fouls & gets to the line at a petty high rate. That said, he gets low to the ground when attacking the basket. Despite having over 200 FT attempts, he only shot 63% but still averaged 17 points + 9.6 rebounds/game. Holds the record for most double double’s in Mountain West History with 44 which is 4 ahead of the previous record holders, Kawhi Leonard (San Diego State) & Andrew Bogut (Utah). Also the son of former NFL defensive end Simeon Rice.


I'm glad the Lakers signed this kid. He played very well in Summer League. He has displayed some skill, hustle & attitude that could allow him to develop into a good defender someday.

IMO he has the energy and athleticism to guard 2, 3 & small-ball 4's.

He'll spend plenty of time developing with the SB Lakers but he has shown that he has potential and good work ethics. His offensive game needs tweaking but his game is well-rounded and he is a willing passer.

He is definitely a welcomed addition to the South Bay Lakers. I would love to see JC being mentored by Metta.

Even if he ends up being nothing more than training camp fodder, it's still a win-win situation for both parties.

Not sure why someone even created this thread.


Because his good times never seemed so good?

Basically. That summer league team was pretty poor. They
Played below the rim while opposing teams jump out of the
Gym.

I’d not fill a 2 way slot with him.

Of course not; he will have to earn his stripes through considerable time in the G-League. He's nowhere near NBA ready.
