I loved Bell in the draft! I knew he would be a player. I remember getting into a conversation with a Josh Jackson with our second pick advocate. I said at the time you take Zo with the 2 and get Josh Jackson like production from Bell with our 28 pick.

If he ever gets his shot down watch out.


They made a good pick with Kuzma at 27 but man the messed up on Hart with #30 when both Jordan Bell and Frank Mason Jr. were still available!


No we didn't.

Hart's fg% should be rising slowly but surely

Up to 45% from the field and 36% from 3 for the season!

It took him nearly half a year to show that touch from range.

Very impressive considering how poorly he started off.
At only 2.7 fga a game, his % should be fluid throughout the year depending on good days and bad.

Really like this kid. Lots of substance to his game.

He’s a solid, contributing rotation player.

Agreed! Which kinda makes his improvement all the more impressive. It is hard for him to get a lot of game reps in given his limited minutes, so it is good to see he can sit for long stretches and still come in and hit those 3's.

His shootings been weird. He started the season 10 for 17; then he went 0 for 12; now he's gone 14 for 27.

I think erratic minutes has a lot to do with that. Its really difficult to get in a rhythm when role changes on a nightly basis. I think hes done a great job when he's gotten an opportunity.

His progression is really obvious and Luke deserves a lot of credit for this. He stuck with him and got him through the rookie doldrums. I wish Luke would start getting Bryant involved as well.

Very good game by Hart. I'm hoping he can be another steal for the Lakers.

Josh "The Lion" Hart is definitely gonna be in this league for a long time. His defense is out of this world(can switch onto bigs and man them up) and he has a good feel offensively. He's the prototype 2 way wing that every team needs that's super valuable in todays NBA.

Big Kudos to the Scouting Staff for landing another steal later in the draft. He will be a super star role player for a long time in the NBA.

We killed the draft this year. I would argue that Zo, Kuz, and Hart should all be starting. Luke tripping

I like Hart, but he is not the defender that KCP is....it's not close.
