He'd struggle to guard PG's as well, due to differences in quickness. There's really no way to mask his defensive shortcomings in the NBA, which is why I don't think he'll ever be anything more than a shooting specialist, at least against most teams' backcourts.
i agree. i think he'll be at best a more athletic (just slightly) version of kyle korver. but who knows i could be wrong. i wouldnt take him with the 8th pick.
