Never saw him play..I look at his GA Tech stats..His FT% improved each year up to 80% this past season...Seems he would have a nice stroke and just needs to work on his 3 pt range...
People forget that Toney Douglas rep out of college was he couldn't shoot...I don't hear that now...
The problem is he didnt improve his shot in 3 years at Georgia Tech. At all.
His shot itself could improve with hard work just like anyone else. He is never going to be mistaken for Reggie Miller but hes going to have to become much more disciplined with the ball.
He chucked up a ton of 3s last year and shot like 25 percent on them. He isnt afraid to shoot, which is something I saw in Douglas when he was at Florida State.
The reason the Knicks drafted him is pretty simple. He is a relentless defender who can cover any non big man on the court. The other reason is he can run the court and is pretty creative around the rim. Just consider those abilities his good traits. Anything else thats comes from him is gravy.
