Thoughts on Okongwu?

He has two way potential. I didn't want to pick him because the Hawks already have Capela, but it makes sense to sure up the front court with our solid wing rotation.  

Travis is building a SKRONG defense around Trae. 

Still hurt we let Hayes go, but I'll get over when I see Okongwu's hopefully excellent defense.

This...it's all about Trae.

I like the pick a lot. Gives us some good depth, and I think he'll develop well over the years. He could be a solid long term player.

The only question I have is, how will Nique pronounce his name?

🤔

 

Oh, that is going to be fun...can't wait.  The chat will be live, we gonna be sipping every time Nique tries pronounce his name.:laugh1:

Love the pick! It’s important in my opinion to build a good big man rotation. I understand all the small ball stuff but a strong big man rotation will take us a long way.

Other than that I love that this kid gets to learn and gel with Capela who’s not selfish in any kind of way! Clint is going to show this kid how it’s done every step of the way! 
 

when you think about it ...Trae, Huerter, Cam, or Hunter didn’t have someone to lead them by example in game, they didn’t have someone at their position  that COULD actually still play (with all due respect to the legend VC). VC was great but only on the mental side of the game for the most part which is important but I think young talents like we have need both . Clint will show and teach okongwu from the very start and that’s something I think we should all be more than excited about.
