worth it

Written by jaismir

Cost: Very low compared to other sim players.

Strengths:

Outside Scoring: He's got a great release and a really good 3pt paired with all the shooting badges you need. Off pick and pops and catch and shoots, he's cash most of the time. Shoot from damn near anywhere and it's good.

Post Game: If your matched up with a smaller 4 or a guard on a pick and roll mismatch, you can fade over them easily. Smooth release and great separation. He can't body up most 4's, but once you get the chance, you can get easy buckets. Don't run him at center tho, he's not THAT strong. He's got great badges for this too.

Weaknesses:

Perimeter D: This card is pretty slow on D and can't keep up with the most speedy forwards. No clamps either so he is a liability sometimes. However, he can get sneaky blocks with his wingspan and gold rim protector.

Playmaking: No outlet passes here. 55 pass accuracy and 34 vision. Don't try throwing full-court passes. He also can barely dribble so don't even try.

Recommended Strategy: "Pick and pop, post-game"

Use if: "You want a great stretch 4 capable of posting up"

Don't use if: "You need a Giannis stopper or a big C"

Bottom Line: "Great value player, lights out shooter."
