i remember the year he got drafted i heard the story about him being a big time HS prospect and then he dropped out to play overseas. i think if he stayed in school and went to college for a year he'd have been a first rounder.
i think his biggest problem was immaturity and a sense of entitlement. maybe now that he's been cut and played in the D-league he got a wake up call and realized he needs to grind and put the work in to make it in the NBA. he's still only 22 i think. i was excited when i first heard he was on the summer league team.
i was reading that there are new rules starting this year with D-league call ups. you can do it as many times as you want or something like that. so if we sign him to an NBA contract and have him as our 3rd big, we can stash him in the D-league to develop and then call him up if someone gets hurt or if he's doing so well we want to bring him up and give him some minutes.
i thought that jennings guy on our team looked pretty polished offensively too. not sure if we gave him a camp invite or not.
