He was averaging like 26 points in D-League and his FG% was .549. His 3 point percentage was .368.

well, there's no footage of him in nbdl although i'm sure most of us want to see. but we just two quick short plays from a youtube clip. it's really impossible to evaluate what level a player is at from any kind of video, much less a 20 second clip.

but a couple things can be assumed. that play was obviously drawn for him to come off the screen to receive the ball and shoot. he was already freed from his man when he was running towards the 3 point spot but was half a step short, so his intention must had been back there. okay, what can one make of this? well, the coach obviously drew that play for him to shoot the 3 in the first one, so obviously he showed enough in practice to have earned enough faith to even get a drawn up play like that.

also, when he shot it, his form did not look whack. not much to critique about. good mechanics, good elbows, good hop, and fair arc. and he launched that quickly without hesitation, almost with a little swagger. and for the second one, he drilled it with even had a hand flying at his face. looks like he made more than a few of those before.

hmmm.... interesting. he definitely does not look that one-dimensional anymore. interested to see what else he got...
