Yabu once he "gets" it , could be a nice role player
a player with his size/mobility/athleticism/versatility is a unique combination. Like a Draymond (minus as good ball handling or passing skills)
so far like his hustle and not shy to get physical under the basket at both ends
Once Yabu gets it, he has a chance to start. The kid does exactly what teams running this style offense are looking to utilize. Guard multiple positions, hustles, passes/unselfish, stretches defenses, improving driving ability, mobile.
We drafted this kid as a project with high upside. He is fantastically athletic for a guy his size with room to grow, especially considering he only picked up the sport in 2012.
I'm not saying he starts next year, he needs to earn his minutes just like everyone else, but this past month has done a lot potentially for his confidence and for Ainge and Stevens to take notice. He can stand to improve his all-around game and sure up defensive rotations but those things are learnable as you play more and more against elite competition.
