    His shooting averages, both 2pt and 3pt, fell off a cliff last season.

    The other free agent sf favourite of mine. He's (like Stanley Johnson) a still young lottery pick talent with obvious developmental problems. That should lower his price range well under the MLE and make him affordable on a long term deal with perspective of improving his player's value by contract end (and receive after 3/4 years at only decent money a very good amount on next contract). Plus, he' croatian like our last first round pick...

    I like him, he can ball and would not be too expensive. Imo he can shine with the spurs.

    I agree with the poster above. He is another guy I wouldn’t mind seeing the team give a shot because he is still young and could figure things out and go on to have a solid career if put in the right situation. One thing that worries me about him is could he fit in with the way Pop runs the team though?

    Quite a softie who liked too much the NY nightlife.

    Might be more mature though, offensive talent is there. Hates defending, according to Fitzdale.

    He can be had for 6 mil, I guess.

    I prefer to go the bogdanovic route and use the mle on a pf. If we can find our bogdanovic type then I'd be ok with this as a fallback option that lowers our floor.

    He got over himself, that's for sure.

    He's embraced his role player status going forth, and with that being sad, he could be a solid addition to the squad.

    He can play the four nowadays and switch across positions pretty decently.

    Has he? Maybe I'm mixed up, but there have been some rumors, IIRC, about his conduct with the magic.

    He had a bad habit of chasing guys in the locker room with penile in hand

    Sounds like a good way to build up the culture that pop would support tbh.

    Can't recall. But if there was, it would've been early on.

    He was overly confident coming into the league.
    He got a reality check so I think he would be appreciative of the opportunity given to him.

    He could really be a solid bench contributor.

    "'I'm going to punch him in the nuts next time," Antetokounmpo said after the game, according to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, who said the comment was not made as a joke.

    Meanwhile, Hezonja didn't regret a thing, though he said the below before hearing Antetokounmpo's quote.

    "Honestly, if you're afraid, this is not for you," he said, according to Steve Popper. "I don't want to be disrespectful, but if you feel fear this is not the place for you, New York is not a place for you and this team is not a place for you."
    If Pop got mad at Nazr for shooting a three, I can't imagine what he'd do to Hezonja for doing the Allen-Iverson-Step-Over-Tyronn-Lue on Giannis after accidentally dunking on him

    Seriously though, if you sign Hezonja, you do so knowing he has a bit of an attitude, tbh.

    The league has made him pretty docile.

    Overconfident fool he ain't no more.

    He's got some swag. I pretty much guarantee there would be no problems with him if he decides to join the club. He knows what he'd be getting into coming here.

    A very good high-ceiling gamble for cheap. Spurs could be just what he needs to reach his potential.

    Going to keep my Free Agent grading system pretty simple this summer:

    They are either #CoffeeGang material or #NotCoffeeGang material.

    Hezonja is obviously #NotCoffeeGang material...

    Even Nazr was way ahead of Pop.
    Already taking 3s in the mid 00..

    Meanwhile pop is outdated per par

    But if Giannis doesn't want to be stepped over he shouldn't fall down like a little girl.

    Let's not forget this play:



    In all seriousness though, I do not want this guy or any other mediocre free agent. I'd rather take a chance on someone from the G-League or an undrafted player rather than sign an underperforming free agent with "potential". Last year the Grizzlies picked up Bruno Caboclo and Yuta Watanabe, so I'd hope the Spurs could do something like that this year.

    Well, I’m intrigued. Don’t know much about him but his highlights (or low lights depending how you look at it) are attention grabbing. How he would get along with Luke would be another interesting thing to consider.
