Re: 2013/2014 Rookie Class Busts and Overacheivers
gorgui dieng is in a good position to succeed in utah. hes a pretty good passer for a center, which should bode well for him in utahs motion heavy system.
i like karasev, but i think it will take him a year or two to put on the weight, and to get used to the physicality and speed of the nba. he definitely has a great pedigree, and great basketball iq.
cj mccollum is another guy who is in a nice position. it looks like he will come off the bench, and have pretty much free reign to do what he wants. and he will have shooters in dorrell wright and allan crabbe, and a good finisher in t-rob around him, but he will still be able to handle the ball a ton.
i think mcw will have a rough season in philly. they have gutted the roster, and i just dont see him as a very composed player, and he doesnt really have anything to fall back on. hes not a very good shooter, or finisher, hes a good passer, with potential thanks to his size and length, but he doesnt have many good options to pass to.
