Last year they took a guy who won a national championship, this year they take a guy who made it there. I don't think he'll end up being a huge steal like Kuzma. But I do think he can be a good role player that can play two positions, be productive, and fit in well with this roster.
I hope you are right about the young German. First reaction from the press is that Rob picked his "schoolmate"....as in Magic picking Kuzma because Kyle grew up in Flint, Michigan. Yes, I saw the NCAA tourney and Wagner looked good, hitting perimeter shots and the guy has that swagger in him etc.
I was just hoping they would fill up that PG reserved spot via draft because I don't want to live through that Ennis/Carruso combo.
I felt, the veteran Brunson would have been a good pick up, also thought they were eyeing Landry Shamet in the early mock draft. Hopefully they are already planning to sign a more dependable backup
I like Mykhailuk because of his ability to shoot from anywhere plus he is a veteran, reminds me of Radmanovic, hopefully without his lack of defense and focus..
