I agree though he is a bit cocky but so far everything he's done looks like he's cocky in a good way and he's actually been a willing passer which was my biggest concern. Needs to adjust to the pace of the NBA though, he's got the athleticism and talent just needs to put it all together. Skiles has him on a short leach though, if he messes up he gets pulled from the game and is in the dog house.
DMC needs to go in to a winning system. If he goes to a team that's losing it'll just be more problems. I don't think he can turn a team around I think he needs to join a team already competing and that already has a winning culture and staff.
I buy into the dissatisfaction with his club/coach. That guy imo tried to sabotage his draft stock. He has this great self-confidence but it can devolve into straight-up cockiness. I loved him pre-draft-he was my top rated wing. I think he's gonna be really good. I couldn't find the tweets, but a credible NBA writer (maybe it was Lowe) said that Orlando targeted Porzingis & Winslow. There was caution with Hezonja due to his personality profile, but he could have been fed false info.
That's a good point with Cousins. I do think finding himself on a non-dysfunctional team would be a big step in right direction lol. I think they should send him to the EC anyway. Don't want to play that guy more than twice a year going forward.
