    Avery Johnson sounded like he didnít have a clue what he was talking about. Saying Sochan would spend a year or two in the G League because he only averaged 9 points a game.

    This dude’s personality will be one of the most likable we’ve had since Keldon. He also reminds me of Diaw and Manu in terms of being a “man of the world”. He has very interesting views and preaches about staying in the present a lot.

    also, he looks like that dude from one of my favorite recent movies: Waves

    Hopefully this starts to mark the end of the Spurs playing small ball. I don't know much about this guy but I have heard he's a very good defensive player, but his offense isn't good.
    His SHOOTING isn't good, but he's Diaw in every way except temperment. The rest of his offense is fine.

    This kid sounds genuinely ecstatic to play for Pop. I think heíll anchor the defensive culture like Draymond does. Heís a great help defense so I think he could have a positive effect on Poeltl. Needs to work with Chip which I donít have a doubt can help him improve his shooting. Great pick!!!

    My 2nd combination choice after Davis/Eason
    Sochan/Jaylen, but both guards have 6í10Ē reach I think?
    I'm pretty sure Sochan's wingspan is 7'2"

    I think he starts on Day 1. It makes you think we could have a legit candidate for ROY based on the role Sochan could be playing as possibly defensive anchor of the team. Iím stoked with what Chip could unfold on his shooting game. His mechanics are not bad.
    starting Sochan and Poeltl would hurt the offense. He's much better suited to come off the bench with Collins tbh. Spurs can't play 2 non-shooters and we're not even sure if DJ can hit the 3 at a respectable rate

    I was just about to say the same thing, doesn't make sense to play 2 non shooters. Only way he starts is if we trade Poeltl. Keldon will start at the 4 if we keep Peoltl.

    I think they misrated Sochan, same as Jay Bilas, who had trouble letting it go that the Spurs took him too soon. Was the first thing when a possibly coked-up Scott Drew came on to talk about the pick for Baylor's program.

    Yeah I was just laughing because Bleacher Report is trash as usual. While I'm not too high on Sochan myself (wanted Duren), it wasn't worthy of a C-.

    I can see Duren. Otherwise I don't see any players I'd obviously rank above Sochan at 9. I don't remember Bilas's top picks at that point, but he had like AJ Griffin and some other usual suspects there. He was also wildly wrong about Jaden Hardy.

    Good. That makes me feel even better. BR is one of the least informative basketball sites on the planet. Pure clickbait.

    The love child of dennis rodman& bruce bowen comes to our fair city
    Perhaps Diaw could be his godfather as well? Just spitballing.

    Be prepared to be disappointed... Not only do i not think he will start on day 1... I think he will be in the g league

    I meant Malaki and Wesley. They have defensive upsides with their long wingspan.

    Sochan has nice forms. If he learn to shoot, he would be most effective with Poeltl. Once and for all I like to rest the narrative that Poeltl is not effective because he had to help Keldon.

    Avery thinks he's a project who will spend the next 2 years in the G-League. That's not the narrative I've been reading.

    Avery doesn't know .

    I wouldn't be so sure of that. In theory, yeah, two non shooters in the sams lineup is killer in the NBA nowadays, but Sochan and Poeltl are very strong offensively on everything else. Underrated ball handlers for their position, very good passers and elite finisher at the rim. Add to that a high BBIQ and they might make it work.

    And the defense, man, the defense should be something else. The Celtics proved hoe far a good defense can still take you in today's NBA, despite having a very dysfunctional offense.
