It's subscription.

On one hand, he is like a taller, longer, bigger Sam Dower. He can really clog up the middle, protect the rim, swat shots and just shoot over everyone. He has some nice moves inside, as well, and a nice left or right hook shot. Has good, soft hands.

One the other hand, he looks slow with a questionable motor, and has a tendency to be a spectater. He also appears to be a bit soft, though that is harder to see than anything else in this short clip.

To summarize, I'd take him in a heartbeat, but I'd rather have Skylar Spencer with Anthony Bennett (I can dream) and the quick, athleticism and skills they both possess.

So do we know that the staff is pursuing his kid?

I hope so. Donny went to watch him last week.

Has he received an offer? Remember, Theo said we should not even think about a recruit until he has received an offer.

We're already recruiting his kid? Precocious fellow. :)

Well, I would offer him. :) Kind of a no-brainer, imo. Top-75 kid. Now, whether the interest is mutual since Donny's visit, that's unknown yet.

Weird how just a single letter can change the whole meaning of something. I've been guilty of it plenty.

Ahh...it made me laugh, ZN. A little sunshine on pretty dreary day in the 206.

Im tired of seeing players waiting and spectating; usually happens on the perimiter but give me Spencer and or Bennett in this case.
