I am not a big fan of his defense.   He is a smart player who can shoot.    In some ways he 'd be a big upgrade over Kornett in others he is not.

I think he's actually pretty good at defense, except as a rim protector.
i remember ollly as being an intelligent defender and who worked hard. his biggest problem is that he is slow afoot. on the perimeter against most guards he had trouble keeping up when they drove to the basket.

but he has gotten stronger and that may help a bit. for team defense, switches, etc. i think he is better than pritchard.

in brief, his defense is acceptable. on offense he reminds a bit of a "low budget Al." a big who can pass, shoot, and rebound all right.

If I recall Theis was killing US in the playoffs last here. I like him but nothing more that a warm body for regular season.

He would not be a long term foundational starter replacement for Horford. He would be a valuable rotation big to fill in for missed games and cover the spots where Grant Williams isn't big enough. For that he is pretty ideal.

Olynyk is a really high level offensive big man. He does an excellent job keeping the ball moving and spreading the court.

On defense he is meh. Probably not a starting caliber player on that side of the court, but he isn't terrible. He's probably a better defender than Kevin Love or similar reserve big men.

Absolutely, no way he is starter material.  In my mind, he would slot somewhere between Grant and Kornet in terms of the big rotation or depth chart.  I am not nearly as excited about him as some seem.  I see him in the Hauser, Pritchard range in terms of depth or impact:

Starters:   Smart, Brown, Tatum, Horford, RWIII
Rotation:  White, Brogdon, Grant
Bench:  Hauser, Pritchard, Olynyk(?)
End of Bench:  Kornet, Griffin
Towel Waver:  Jackson

Brad too. He influenced Danny picking him in 2013 draft, something to the effect that Butler could never stop him. I sometimes wonder if Brad comment factored into not taking Giannis with that pick. We will never know.

Stevens wasnít even hired until a week after the draft, so I would be quite surprised if he had much influence on Aingeís pick.

Hmm. Let me try to find the quote. Thought Danny asked his opinion before the draft. Thx for pointing that out.

He was hired just one week after the draft so not inconceivable asked his opinion before it was officially announced.

Certainly not inconceivable, but Stevens could have praised Olynyk just as part of the research NBA teams do with college coaches during the draft process, before Doc had even left.  He was obviously respected, so his voice might have carried extra weight relative to other college coaches, but itís not like he was at all involved in the decision to make the pick over Giannis.
