Do you think Rubio is that?
Well, Rubio has the handle to get to the basket and initiate the offense. He's not great finishing at the rim, but he can do it. I suppose he's not a huge difference than the way Rubio plays, but he does need to improve his handles.
He’s not perfect, but he’s also not in the Nba yet. He has time to grow. I’m just not sure a traditional ball dominant lead guard is the way to go with Booker. If that player is better than Booker, then sure, but that’s not likely. I’d like someone who allows Booker to play off ball some, but can also play off Booker.
Is there a pg in this class you like?
I totally agree that you don't want a guard that pounds the air out of the ball like Kyrie, but someone that can bring the ball up, initiate the offense and keep the defense honest with drives to the basket along with creating for themselves and others is ideal. The nice thing is that Monty's offense doesn't really allow the ball handler to dribble it for 10+ seconds every possession while everyone else stands around waiting for them to do something.
is my favorite in this class. I think his creativity and vision is elite and his handles are top notch right away. His shot selection is super questionable and his shot itself needs help. Him being 6'7"-6'8" along with ability to score in the half court, rebound and theoretically eventually defend.
I like Hayes
next, as I think he reminds me of Devin and his development path might be very similar, although in a PG body. He also has a dad who was a former pro ball player that works with him all the time. You can see that he improves his weaknesses, so he's actively conscious of them and has improved on those season to season. He also comes off a little more disciplined and cerebral in his play style, while having a nice advanced passing skills.
Very close and mix and match these next few
- For reasons I state prior.
then very closely Cole Anthony
- Theoretically, their athleticism, strength and ability to score at all levels, putting pressure on the rim with their own shot creation, while being able to also stretch the floor off ball could play well with Booker to not have to be the only shot creator on the floor. Also theoretically, they may be able to eventually guard the ultra quick small guards, matching them with their own athleticism.
