Dude's ceiling is basically Shanon Brown or Tony Allen.

How much you want to bet this guy is Hassan Adams v2.0?


Best Case: Tony Allen
Worst Case: Hassan Adams




I never saw much of him until the tourney where I thought he flashed Terrence Williams ability. Sick rebounder, willing passer, should be a good defender, improved jumper. I think the tools are there. At 27 or around there hes a good prospect

Is that from DX?

I thought it was kind of ironic Jon used that as his best worst case as well figuring he did those in response to my thread on RealGM and Hassan Adams seemed like such an obscure name and it was me that was championing that name for months.

Just saying...

Lol that still isn't telling me about Leslie.

W/e. Sounds like he's not the pick though anyway. I like Jackson, reminds me of bayless. But just like biyombo the lack of workouts, meetings, or head to heads is disconcerting

Based on that alone, I want nothing to do with Jackson.

How is that not telling you about Leslie?

He's a freak athlete who's a lot less a basketball player.

His handle is awful, his shooting is awful, he's undersized, he's really a small forward and he sucks in the half court.

His whole game is transition and some defense and some passing here and there.

His BBIQ is a lot less then advertised as well, pretty average in that regard.

Lot of people just kind of look at a dudes frame, face, or hairstyle and give the comparison. Just saying Hasan wasnt giving me much. They both wore red and have the same big head and long hairline.

I agree that hes probably a SF but his 80% on free throws shows hes got a stroke he just needs work at it. But even without that hes got a bit of a Terence Williams game to me. Explosive first step and an eye for the extra pass.

Hes got a natural feel for rebounding and the potential to be a pitbull on defense. I saw a few things that he can do and he looked like a great guy to get into the D-league and work with

And I was just saying that Hassan Adams comparison was mine and it coincidentally found it's way onto DX.

Will Barton could be a nice pick.

Would love Jeff Taylor.

Even better would be to move up somehow for Terrence Ross or Evan Fournier.
