Seriously? He is an undersized center with exactly one post move. He can't even make a shot jumper. He has a nice 4 foot half hook, against 6'6" centers. When fouled he only hits half of them. Compared to him, CJ Anderson's range is that of Trae Young's. I agree they need to give him looks in the post, but he is indecisive when he catches it, and does not pass well outside of the post. He is a tenacious rebounder, and solid defender though.longliveskip wrote: ↑Mon Dec 10, 2018 1:22 pmif i was him, i'd be frustrated as well. the offense should RUN through him. does that mean he shoots inside every time? no. but we need to make more of a concerted effort to enter the ball into the post, cut, spot up, etc. our offense runs so much better when we do that.thecoach wrote: ↑Mon Dec 10, 2018 1:14 pmThe guy i'd worry about not returning is Jones. He looks frustrated in the half court offense. Some of it may be his fault, but there is an awful lot going on out on the perimeter and his touches are often not very consistent.longliveskip wrote: ↑Mon Dec 10, 2018 12:17 pmso we lose Welage, Hankins and Castlin. i can't imagine anyone else leaves but after what Gates did, who knows. however, IF no one leaves and we bring back the core of Goodin, Marshall, Scruggs, and Jones - that's a pretty good core 4 right there (with another year of improvement under their belt) and add on next year's class, i think the future is bright.
let's hope this team can get it together THIS year but i'm not so sure. gonna be some rough sledding.
However, I think Hankins is clearly the better overall center on this team.
