    Shane Larkin

    I feel like this kid has got lost in the shuffle in this trade. He was the 18th pick in last years draft and has a lot of potential. He' a speedy and athletic (44 inch max vert) PG who can really help us now and can be a big part of our future. He broke his ankle last year in the Summer League so was way behind when he returned mid-season. I think you can discount last seasons stats because he didn't return to form until the season was over. I just thought this kid deserved his own thread since we have one for the other players we acquired during the draft and Larkin is basically our 1st rounder this year.

    I like Larkin. If he was in this years draft (hypothetically) do you think he still would have been a first rounder?

    True he can be are version of JJ barea. The kid is lighting quick. I'm really happy we acquired him and he in full strength right now. I'm very excited to see our young guys in the summer league.

    I think Larkin probably would have went around 20 to Toronto in this draft.

    We are actually going to have a pretty exciting Summer League team with Larkin, Hardaway Jr., Early, and Antetokoumpo. That is a very athletic 4 right there. Everyone has at least a 40 inch max vert. Actually except for Hardawy Jr who has a 37.5 max vert.

    Can't wait to see him in the summer league. At the beginning of the 2013 draft analysis, many thought that he could drop to us - towards the end it was clear he would go significantly earlier than our pick. I'm glad we got him in the end. He's this years 1st rounder

    I went back and looked at his college Dxpress analysis and the kid is fast. John Wall fast in transition. He can shoot. Good passer. Can play on and off the ball.

    If he can overcome his physical limitations to not be a liability on defense he could eventually be a starter. I think his floor is a highly effective change of pace guard off the bench (Barea), but he has the potential to be much better.

    That will be fun to watch!



    It's all downhill from here.
    Might as well enjoy the ride.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. A much more athletic Augustin.

    Shane has the capabilities to being a very efficient player in the triangle, offensively he is very sound. What people knocked him about was only his height, there is no other severe deficiences in his game overall. If he was 6'1 or 6'2 he would have been a lottery player last season.
