Default On the Casey Jacobsen signing

Here I post a relatively new scout report on Jacobsen. It's from July of this year.

Casey Jacobsen, 6-6, Shooting Guard, Brose Baskets Bamberg (Germany), 1981

Another excellent shooter, with even more size and versatility to his game, Casey Jacobsen has already spent four of his last six seasons since graduating from Stanford on an NBA roster, so making it back for another one wouldn’t be a shock. He spent this past season playing for the eventual German champions Bamberg under renowned coach Dirk Bauerman—where he shined--and was in the Euroleague the year before with Tau Vitoria, as a role player. Jacobsen is a smart and extremely tough swingman who isn’t afraid to take the ball strong to the basket or fight for an offensive rebound down low. He’s made a name for himself, though, more as a shooter, for his ability to come off screens and knock down shots from NBA range thanks to his picture perfect stroke. He’s not a bad athlete and will compete on the defensive end as well, even if his handle is weak and his shot is prone to bouts of streakiness. He’s hasn’t been quite an automatic enough shooter to lock up a permanent spot in the NBA just yet, and the other wrinkles he has to his game don’t really come to the surface in the role he was usually asked to do. Regardless, teams could probably do worse than to pick him up for the minimum, even if he won’t be playing summer league this time around.

there you go. woot woot. thoughts on Casey and what / how big will his role be on the Grizzlies?
