Havent seen a thread for this. Believe it was first reported by Sharms. Word is the jumper has been making good progress, hopefully it translates to real games but I feel like Brand and Brown are fully confident in his development by giving him the extension now.

Not a shock. He's worth the max. He basically does it all except shoot.

Working on his shooting is the final piece between just being an all-star and a perennial all-star. He's not as aggressive driving to the basket with the intent of initiating contact or to score because he's likely afraid of FT shooting.

Beyond just 3PTers, if he could get to 75%+ FT that alone would make him much better.
