2020-21 Award Winner
He seems more refined... but we have only seen him in preseason. He's not the athlete and doesn't have the physical tools Don does. I could see him being more efficient and well rounded than rookie Donovan but no way do I think he could handle the volume and defensive attention Donovan got. Jared may put up some more efficient numbers in part because of spacing and the talent level being higher.Jared's game is more mature than Donovan's as a rookie. He's also a better passer which will help. He'll get minutes from Conley and Ingles and then we'll see the battle for alpha dog. Hopefully they compliment each other as you say.
I will say... the way he got his in the pre-season was very cerebral and seemed like he could duplicate his moves. It seemed well thought out. I think he could be the rare rookie capable of a rotational role on a title contender. I could also see the physicality ramping up and he gets a little overwhelmed and shrinks back his game (which may not be a bad thing in the early years). Like how does he look when a Jevon Carter or Dort get up into his body and don't let him dance? I need to see the kid more before getting too wild.
