I agree that he's capable of being a viable and good NBA player.. but he hasn't proven it yet. And I tend to lean more towards actual game action rather than sets and drills. Do people think he's gonna get more confidence practicing? He's been doing that for two years and it's made no difference. If he was in summer league, his confidence would grow by playing against rookies and scrubs. Off the top of my head I know that Gerald Green, Kevin Durant, Nate Robinson, Ronaldo Balkman, and a bunch of other 2-3 year players are in summer league and are probably planning to attend a team practice when its done as well. It's not a huge obligation, he could do both.
