That is good.

I think the kid has a good chance to develop in to a very good NBA player.

He's appears to have a good handle and court awareness.

Very competitive. Has a lot of all around skills that will be further developed. Well rounded. Can play on both sides of the ball. We need wings with his potential.

His biggest flaw is his shooting stroke. If that can be fixed and if he develops a consistent 3pt shot the sky is the limit for this kid.

You are not going to get a player without some flaws. His shooting will improve with good coaching, practice and more body strength. There is no reason to believe that this won't improve significantly.

I stand by what I said yesterday morning ...

Okay, I hope it all works out. We should have idea sometime around December. Until then, I am hoping to find out over time that we finally have a front office that is smarter than some of the posters in this forum.

No mention on us signing Naz Reid to a two year two way contract? It was very surprising that he wasn't drafted. He's a center that has the ability to play stretch 4. Good ball handling and shooting ability out to 3.

There has been no mentioning of us signing anyone to a two way contract. We need another big man who can play with KAT. Good to see a stretch 4 signing.

Nowell sounds like he could add some good scoring punch with the second unit.

Has there ever been a draft when the powers-that-be outperformed the Twolves board?

There might have been somewhere.
Lets just hope we start improving this roster.

I like what I see so far. You are not going to change things over night. We have players with some promise and a front office with some experience and have well defined rolls.

The consensus of this board I believe would have been standing pat or possibly even trading up and drafting Doumbouya. So if Doumbouya is better than Culver or the combination of Doumbouya and Saric is better than Culver the board wins again.

Reading the tea leaves. They can’t sign Saric and why not move him now. They Undrafted FA May be just as good plus now they have a more ready player. They tried to move back in and get development player but couldnt.

Saric loss doesn't bother me too much and I liked the Culver pick.

Hi Guys:
Forgive me if I missed this:

I am seeing through through various sources we have signed the following:

Jordan Murphy PF Minnesota
Barry Brown Jr. K State guard
Naz Reid C PF LSU
Tyus Battle SF Syracuse

Can anyone confirm and give us opinions on "stickability"

Naz Reid is on a "2-way G-League" contract, so he'll likely stick for the year - but spend most (if not all) of it playing in Iowa.

The other 3 guys are likely just camp bodies. They'll play in Summer League and practice with the team, but odds of any of them sticking are really small.

Love this DL....His shot looks a bit like Butler's..interesting? I think he can make this team!

Loved Murphy’s workmanlike effort with the Gophers but not sure there’s a place for him in the NBA unless he can add a few dimensions to his game.

Culver from all reports is a hard worker, and a deeper dive into his skills suggests he may yet develop into a serviceable shooter.

I don’t think he was who Rosas was ultimately gunning for. I think he was trying to get to Garland at 4. But this is a still a good pick. I like that he was aggressive in the draft.

Reid needs some work but the upside is very high. I think he is a steal as a FA.

5 star, Top 20 recruit.

Got a little fat as a freshman and underperformed, but the talent is definitely there.

Fixing a shot is a difficult job at the NBA level, even for the best shooting coaches.
Arthur Engellend is praised for his work with Leonard, rightfully so, but Leonard still has one of the flattest shots in the game.

There isn't enough time to fix a NBA players shot. The best you can do is tweak it.
Many of these great athletes entering the NBA have poor, lazy, inconsistent shooting mechanics. Most of them spent 10+ years forming bad shooting habits. It's very difficult to convince a NBA player to completely revamp his shooting mechanics. That takes time and serious commitment. And, you're going to get worse before you get better. Who is willing to sign on for that?

Certainly there are exceptions, but if you hit the league with a broke stroke, you better be good at everything else.

Back to Leonard, he worked like a dog, got so much better. I'm certain Engelland was responsible for a lot of the end result, but he had a very willing client.

Probably what makes Engelland such a good NBA shooting coach is that he's extremely aware of the short time-line to get the job done. There are probably a million people that can teach shooting mechanics. It takes an expert to fix a shot.

I've read a lot about Culver being a good not great athlete. I think his 45 inch vertical at his Lakers workout might dispute that.
