Private Workout: Redick vs. Roy

Private Workout: Redick vs. Roy

Postby JSM on Sun May 14, 2006 10:42 pm

Draft Express: J.J. Redick also conducted a workout held by Arn Tellem in Southern California, also featuring Brandon Roy. Many NBA personnel made the trek, but almost all unanimously came away disappointed by the outcome. “If I wanted to watch J.J. Redick shoot threes in a gym all day long, I would have stayed home and watched tape of him warming up before games for Duke,” one NBA scout complained. “A humongous waste of time”, said another. “If you don’t want to let your clients beat each other up and hurt each other’s stock, that’s fine, but why call us all in?”

Redick’s workout schedule is an interesting topic these days. Many wonder whether he will take the Gerald Green route of not working out against anyone in a competitive two on two setting.

I have doubts on J.J. in the pro's. He was definitely a good college player, but the quickness and size of the pro defense will likely minimize his ability.

I wonder how he would be used? Like Steve Kerr maybe? He seems like a throwback to Steve Alford, who was great in college, but needed lots of screens. Of course Steve didn't work out in the pro's.

I think Redick can definitely stick in the pros, but he's not going to score anything like what he did in college. The thing that he has going for himself more than anything else is actually how hard he works. I know he's a great shooter...but he's going to have to work hard to master the game at the NBA level if he wants to see the court for real.

At 6'4" and a spot up shooter, he wouldn't be a terrible fit for the triangle. If he works hard, he could be a Jon Barry-type player.

Could be good to have a marksman in the triangle...but we don't make much use of Sasha and I'm sure his 3pt % would be higher if he got more consistent playing time.

Reddick would be a star on a good team with a post presence. the guy can shoot. But I like Thabo Sefolosha better. I think Thabo has much more upside than Reddick. Reddick won't fall that far anyway. But Thabo can become a better shooter. I don't think reddick's game will improve much in the NBA.

I think that workout that he conducted is interesting. It's obvious that we know what he can do by watching his college games. Why not show some schouts that he can do what they don't think he can? That's the whole purpose of these workouts, to improve your status, not just affirm that you are good at what you've already proven.

JJ can only shoot off screens.
He is unable to create his own shot. If he had worked out 1-1 against Roy everybody would have saw that.
Not enough for the pros.

Thabo Sefolosha has the whole package. SG 6-7, great ball handling, quick, deadly slasher, dangerous on fastbreak.
He's becoming a better shooter each day...
Showtime guy who can pass the ball.
Average defense at the moment IMO but with that long arms....

Hey Helicopter, do you think 51st pick will be enough, or he'll be early 2nd rounder? He sounds good.

Orlando and Utah like Redick, he won't drop past them. Fine by me. Redick can only succeed in a Fisher catch and shoot role off kickouts, Can't create his own shot and will be an enormous defensive liability.

Sniper is a need, sure. But they're already developing a one trick pony in Sasha. The greater need is to get a player who can shoot and has other skills beyond that. Sasha shooter only. Cook shooter only. Three unathletic gunner matadors is 1/4th of the active roster. Bad idea on a team lacking in speed, athleticism and defense.

If they want a shooter get him on the cheap in free agency with the BAE, don't waste a #1 on a single skill offense-only player. Kupchak has already done that twice in the past three drafts and we've paid a heavy price for it on the other end.

JJ is my boy..but we should be discussing Roy instead of Redick.
We should try to move up and get him to partner Kobe in the backcourt.

Redick probably wont, but he should be taken @ 8 by the Rockets.
