He's definitely an NBA talent. An actual NBA player is another question...
I remember the Pistons were extremely high after drafting him with the 9th pick a couple years back. Was an offensive stud at college, with legit inside-outside sort of game. Silky smooth offensive player with good athleticism and height. Had the skill set and the tools. However...it was just the concentration problems, and perhaps some mental toughness. He never cracked anyone's rotation, and way too often disappeared to nullify all his potential at times. He never found his groove in the NBA level...I actually remember that he got his chance with Denver and played good minutes off the bench for them, and actually produced for them (9 points per game, but all his numbers across the board were very modest and didn't stand out). He's still fairly young at 26-27, but the window's slowly closing on him. He's been bouncing around the LA summer league teams (he was with the Clips last year, I think he actually made the team, but of course never impressed.
But undoubtedly, with the subpar talent on our SPL team, he's easily one of the better ones (and more well-known).
Personally I'm looking to see what Coby Karl can do. He didn't play for a good conference, but as George Karl's son, obviously he's got the basketball acumen and IQ. Seems to be an all-around player who can shoot, and even has that 6'11" wingspan, but he suffers from athleticism and footspeed. But still, he was a draft bubble candidate this year, and the only one (unfortunately) we've picked out in this year's draft. Seems like Mitch scared away many of our potential summer league talents by drafting internationals in the 2nd round--I really wanted Zabian Dowdell, Ali Traore, Kyle Visser, Yannick Bokolo, Brandon Heath, Quinton Hosley, JR Reynolds and/or Ron Lewis on our team.
