 @C-Wil Also Varejo and Barbosa. If that team's healthy, it's a good test.

Here's a horrible grainy video of Hollis's biggest career highlight as a Hoya, hitting a FILTHY 3 for the win on the road at #12 Alabama on ESPN. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eD_UU-XLDYQ

 @jeffori He's not great on D, but at least Georgetown played primarily man to man during his time there. He has the length and athleticism to be an adequate defender, but needs to add strength. Not a ball hawk though. Will never be a "good" defender, but average could be attainable.

 @dancassidy35/FreeFestusFromGSW! You're all welcome! I'm happy to answer any questions about his game anyone might have. As you might imagine, I'm extremely excited about this development! Us Hoya fans thought he was gonna lose his shot at the NBA because of this sports hernia.

Alright, I'm a Georgetown alum and massive Hoya fan, so let me give you all my scouting report on Hollis Thompson, as someone who's seen every game of his college career.

 

If you leave Hollis open, he will absolutely make you pay with his jump shot. That's the most important thing about his game, the kid is an absolutely dead eye shooter and he's made that three for buzzer beater wins. He has an issue with passivity on the court, but that won't be a problem given the role he's been asked to handle. Oddly, he's not a good FT shooter, Hoya fans were never sure why that was. I assume its mechanical and will be corrected by the coaching staff. His handle is very suspect for the next level; this is something he'll need to work on. He has the length and athleticism to be a good defender, but was never tasked with shutting down an opponent's best option as a Hoya (that was always senior guard Jason Clark). He is a solid rebounder for his position, moreso on the defensive end than the offensive one. He's a strong passer, as is everyone who comes out of JT3's princeton-style system. (JT3, the coach of Georgetown, used to coach Princeton and Pete Carrill, the inventor of the passing-centric princeton offense is one of his biggest mentors.)

 

Hollis Thompson is a very smart kid, he was rumored to have the highest grades and SATs of a Georgetown scholarship player since Princeton Transfer Jon Wallace. He should be able to pick up our basic offensive sets and defensive rotations quickly. If he is able to improve his handle, he has a chance to give us basically what Daquan Cook does with the upside potential of less streakiness.

 @justin_mia Just a difference in definitions then. I consider Thabeet and Oden major foul machines. Hopefully one of Hasheem or Cole will emerge capable of taking this role.

 @justin_mia I don't see what about Cole's career 6 fouls per 36 would suggest he won't be.

Reply

 @justin_mia Say what you want about Nazr, but he's a veteran who knew our rotations inside and outside on defense and our sets on offense and he could hit a mid range jump shot if left open regularly. If he plays in the NBA like he's playing in the summer league, he's gonna be in Tulsa.

2 years, 1 month ago on Grant Hill considering Thunder, Heat and Lakers?

Reply

 @FREE_COLE  @Lost Ones  @Grolgar I think he could produce that in 8-10, but I'm worried about him turning the ball over, and I question his ability to do it efficiently from the field while playing quality defense and not clogging up the offensive lane. I'm rooting hard for him, but he's gotta prove it or we need to go get someone who can get it done.

 @cjones191  @Lost Ones All three of those guys are very good rebounders. The book on LeBron is to surround him with shooters and let him create through the drive and kick. Make no mistake, the Heat have improved this offseason (unless Wade gets old or something overnight). That's scary.

 @OBoymuzik  @koolcrud I'm not talking about a top vet though like those guys. I never expected us to go out and get a Steve Nash or a Ray Allen. But a Grant Hill or a JJ Hickson as another option off the bench seems more than reasonable. For those wondering about where the minutes would be, this team looked like it could've really used another scorer off the bench or another big body when Ibaka and Perk were getting into foul trouble during the Finals.

Every other contender is using their mid level exception. If we're not willing to offer a veteran like Hill (not necessarily him, but someone like him, Landry, Jamison, Kaman, Lee, Hickson or Brand) a 1 year deal for the full MLE, there's no two ways about it, we're being cheap while the title window is open. It also probably wouldn't bode well for ownership's willingness to pay a hefty tax bill to compensate our RFAs.

Lazar could've really helped in the finals if he got some of Harden's minutes. #summerleaguetrolling
