Maker definitely not a lock for the Olympics atm.
If he runs himself into any semblance of form he's potentially a very valuable bench piece for the Boomers. When he starts blocking and hitting threes he has the potential to be a real fire starter and get everyone going but yeah I would have thought both him and Bolden would be better than what they currently are. A bit disappointed.

Not sure what happened to Bolden. Started guzzling his own bathwater perhaps?

Maker always struck me as a streaky type so I'm not surprised he is up and down, especially going between different systems.

Josh Green had a very nice game - particularly with his shooting.
20 points (7/13 from field, 4/7 from 3, 2/2 from line) + 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 0 turnovers.

His PG Nico Mannion - also highly rated looks a passing gun so could really boost Greens stats across the year.

Now averaging
15 points, 5.5 boards, 2 assists, 1 steal, 0 turnovers per game
shooting splits 50/45/71

Has the athleticism - if he can continue shooting it well, he'll be highly coveted come draft time.

A big sized shooting guard, who can knock down the three while being a lock down defender. We could use that on the boomers
Went 0/3 in game 3
8 points on 10 shots, 0 FTs, 4 boards, 3 assists, 2 steals

Pretty nice start in his first 3 games. Would have taken that at the start of the season.


Would love him to aim for ~14 points, 5 boards, 2.5 assists, 1 steal, 35% from 3. Get to the line for ~3 Ft per game.
