Mitch coming back is great and all, but where is the press release about Spike coming back?
I really don't think McGary or GRIII should even think about the NBA yet. While there are some good projections for both of them, either could slip to the second round. Neither is guaranteed a 10-30 year "head start" on the earning curve like Burke is right now.
Either could play himself into the top five next year; both should come back.
Please stay for four Mitch!
Being honest, I predict a mass exodus of talent at the end of next season: GR3, McGary, Hardaway, Morgan, among other graduates.
I'm going to throw out a guess at a lineup:
PG: Walton / Albrecht
SG: Hardaway / Stauskas
3rd Guard: Stauskas / Levert
SF: GR3 / Biefeldt
PF: McGary/ Horford / Morgan
Four out, one in
You don't think Irvin will crack the rotation? I think both him and Donnal will. Irvin will take thjr's spot if he leaves early and I think Donnal may pick up some
Of the 4 minutes if GRIII leaves early.
I'll be honest and say I don't know much about Irvin's college readiness. I do think he's going to get some playing time, the question is how much.
Great news!! I really hope GRIII stays as well.
Styaing at least one more year is in McGary's best interests. McGary's draft stock is inflated due to the a weak draft and a hot streak of games at the right time, and until he refines his skillset he could wash out of the league very quickly.
He's not a legitimate lottery prospect until he proves to be a regular starter that is worthy of playing 30+ minutes a game, every game. Obviously there were many factors behind his minutes his freshmen year, but you're drafting a rotation player with a first round pick, and an assumed starter in the lottery. So far, he's only logged three games of 30 or more minutes and plays less than half the game on average.
He needs to show that he can be the man in the post without being spoonfed by Burke's penetration. There's certainly room in the NBA for hustling big men that set strong picks and play great post defense, but to make a mark on the league you have to have a go-to scoring move somewhere in your arsenal, particularly if you are compensating for a sub-50% FT clip.
