    I see some Bradley Beal / Russell Westbrook on his game, how he moves but I'm not saying he could be as good as those. lol Maybe just me. I'm not expecting too much but hoping he could be a solid role/key player.
    I see more Butler in him. He is slightly shorter than Jimmy but with a longer wingspan and much higher standing reach. No one would say Jimmy can't play the three or guard big wings. Of course, Johnson will need time to grow into his body and gain enough renown in the league to play a physical style on D without too many fouls, but he can certainly be an SF in that same mold.

    I understand complaining about KJ at #19, but, at #29, he's an absolute no brainer.

    So he apparently has a 7'0 wingspan all of a sudden?

    Keldon J has all the look of being a wonderful pick at #29, I certainly agree. He could do good things for us.

    You do realize this is the same clown shoes GM who said during a press briefing after trading away Luis Scola that he didn't think his game translated well to the NBA.

    A lot lot of people didn’t.

    People on here including me were high on Blossomgame and the Spurs let him go. Earning minutes as a rookie is always tough on the Spurs. He’ll probably be in Austin the entire year.

    He wasnt let go for performance. He was let go for other reasons.

    I call BS. No one outside of the Spurs knew who Uncle Fester was when Kawhi was drafted, let alone what his position on anything was.

    Was he not over himself? I didn’t hear any drama with him.

    Why are we pretending that it's the same distance? And equally defended?

    Of course Butler can play the three, but he can't play the four. If you watched the playoffs, you'd know he's not quite big enough (as you alluded to, t-rex arms) to truly defend big wings, which is why it took all of 1 game for the 76ers to have Simmons be the primary Scumbag defender.

    Eh, Derrick White can defend Kawhi. Offensive wingspan isn't really that big of a deal, and outside of that, Kawhi's just an average size for an SF. Butler could guard him and indeed probably should have. Maybe Jimmy has fallen off to the point to where he can't do it anymore, but he was checking Durant and James on the regular back in the day.

    I don't believe Johnson could play the four in anything but a gimmick lineup. But I also don't think you worry he's too small to guard someone like Kyle Kuzma if your designated defensive four has to guard James. People should pump the brakes on thinking Johnson is going to develop into a defensive beast in terms of skill, craftiness or reputation, but size-wise, you can put him on any small-forward and be comfortable he'll have a chance.

    HIS STANDING REACH IS HALF AN INCH LONGER SO HE CAN DEFEND ANYONE!
