I like te sound of plunkee. He has legit size, rebounds the ball well and has a more efficient offence than any of our bigs do. But I see a few are down on him, just wanting to know what people think of him who have seen him play.
my comp: a more athletic version of chris humphries.
*Beal is the type of guy who sort of blends into a team and does his work without being a look-at-me guy. Doesn't do a ton of spectacular things but after the game you look at the box score and you see he had 15/5/5 and played great defense.
Well he does comparatively stand out more than Beal so there isn't a worry there.
I haven't seen a guy in a long time I know can be an elite scorer because 25+ ppg is becoming a rarity these days. If Kemba continues to hover around the 20 mark then we really don't need an elite scorer for fear of reducing Kemba's effectiveness. McLemore has the potential to light the scoreboard up though and I could see him being a lead scorer if need be.
To that, I believe he'd be a pretty good match for Kemba and MKG because he's shown (especially in his last game) to have a nice floor game for a wing. He's not the secondary PG type of guy but he made a number of plays both on and off the ball. We know Kemba is ball dominant, so having a guy that can hit from set pieces while also allowing Kemba to not have to go 150% all night would be nice
This draft is hard for me because I'm a BPA kinda guy. However, if the most dynamic player is a 2, I'm nervous. We have so much need for an elite PF with Hendo and Taylor projecting out at the 2, that it would be hard for me to take a SG. Sucks because Shabazz and McLemore are pretty nasty. I guess maybe we package Hendo and something else and get our PF via trade. Then taking a guy like McLemore would be cool. We need to get our "Durant", "Rose", "Carmelo" by next season via draft or trade.
For me right now, my top 5 for us:
Thing is, unless we get say top 5 I don't think we're getting a 15-20 ppg post player. He'll, even if we get the number 1 pick I'm not sure we would. But if we were going in the 5-10 range would plumlee be a bad pick for us?
