I've got it - Rozier for Justin Patton .
I've got a lot of stock in Justin Patton. I'm a big fan of his game.
Same. Love that guy.
He averaged 9 steals per-36 last year. DPOY candidate.
Patton's ceiling is not as high as KAT, but he has the same skill set and play type. He can score inside and outside with great efficiency. He is a good defender on the perimeter and inside. His rebounding instincts are lacking, but that's the only real weakness to his skillset (other than overall development and seasoning).
I think Rozier is a borderline All-star in the right situation, but even if he never reaches an All-star game, he is a legit two-way game-changer who can play at a high level in the playoffs.
And I would give up Rozier for Patton right now, even if they had the same contract situation.
Some players are just your guys, even without good reason. Patton is one of those players to me.
Lol, you don't have to sell me on Patton, man, and I'm with you all the way in terms of trading for the guy regardless of contractual circumstances, plus, let's get him out of Minnesota before Thibs ruins his career .
Additionally, JP has already bulked up, as evidenced by my viewing of his G League highlights during the past season, haha, but I actually like him much better than Towns, as he keeps the ball high on rebounds, is significantly quicker and faster than KAT, has a great motor, defensively, is an awesome passer, and his post game is already more advanced than probably 95% of guys in the NBA, imo. Dude's up-and-under is b1tch1n', lol .
Have you seen any of his G League highlights, btw?
Good to hear I'm not alone in my unreasonable affection. He moves more and more like Jermaine O'neal with the weight he putting on.
His court vision at that level has been really impressive too.
Don't worry, csfansince60s is high on him, too, so you're not alone, haha, and I'd certainly be down for a better passing version of Jermaine O'Neal, although isn't that like 90% of KG?
I remember watching highlight videos of Patton's from college and one user on the YouTube
kept saying that JP was like a combination of Anthony Davis and Towns, and while I don't know as to whether or not Patton will ever be that good, I can certainly understand that guy's logic. The way that Patton takes the ball away from point guards
, lol, is ridiculous, too
, so yeah, where do I sign?
Not sure if Minnesota would go for it, though
, but they've already got Towns, Dieng, Gibson, and Bjelica, and besides, even with his Game 7 stinker, I'd take Rozier over Jeff Teague any day of the week and twice on Sunday
, but I seriously doubt that Thibs is that dumb. He can't be, right? Right?
