Has anyone scouted Giannis Adetokoubo. Looks like the exact type of small forward Monty would love if we could develop him a little bit.
He is very, very raw but if the Pelicans trade back, I could see them drafting and stashing him. An interesting scenario: Imagine Utah falls in love with Burke and they offer their two picks and an asset like Alec Burks for the Hornets pick. Then you take BPA at 14 (McCollum, GR III, KCP, etc.) and Giannis Adetokoubo at 21.
Eurostashes are very odd. Basically, if you bring them over within three years, they comeover and are locked in to their rookie scale contract. After three years, you can negotiate any contract you want with them.
If we can get Brewer on a 3 year deal that sounds like a perfect scenario. If we were to draft him or another European player in the late teens early 20s and then stash them in Europe what would their contact situation be and would it count against the cap?
Thing you have to keep in mind is that he has been playing in the weakest league, where a guy like Dario Saric has been playing against men in the toughest divisions. Basically, Saric is playing in the Big East or Big Ten and Giannis is playing D-3. He is going to have a reality check when he tries to play in NBA. He is at least 2 years away from contributing at all, maybe 3 or 4.
Yea I'd love to grab him. He looks like an unbelievable dribbler for his size and hes a one man fast break. Also looks like the type of player that could challenge Durant defensively when we start to make our run if he reaches his potential.
