He has the opportunity to become our starting 3.
He looks like a nice talent. But he doesn't look ready enough to be the type of scorer that would warrant ROY consideration. He doesn't look anywhere close to the best player in the draft - he didn't go tenth because he's the best. And SA gets nice players late usually, not stars by trading up to 10. i don't see it at all.
