The potential I saw was probably mainly because our other PGs were so bad that I saw little things in him that he did better than those other guys. I saw good handles, quickness, an ability to get into the lane and the basket, decent passing ability, but these things probably mainly looked good by comparison to Fisher and Blake. In reality he just isn't good enough right now, he seemingly made little to no improvement since we drafted him. I thought if he could learn to play under control and put those natural PG skills to use, put that NBA size to use, that he could be a decent backup. It just hasn't happened to this point though, and I don't think it's going to, because although it seems he's put in the work, he can't put it together on the court in actual games.
