Drop Hood for Norman Powell? WHIR


Recommended Posts

I'd keep Hood.  Jazz have said they expect him to be a go-to scorer this year so the opportunity is there for him to succeed.  Powell looked nice today, but hes at best the 3rd option in the starting unit.  

 

Both contribute in the same categories, but Hood has a higher ceiling

streaky + injury prone

 

One season of injury and already labeled injury prone?  And what makes you think Norman Powell will be consistent especially in his first year as a starter?  He's at best 3rd fiddle and has CJ Miles breathing down his neck for minutes.  Hood is the de facto starter with a rookie as his backup.  Dennis Lindsey has even said they can see Hood being the #1 option with Hayward gone. Regardless, efficiency may be an issue for him but counting stats its no question Hood has more opportunity.

 

Seems like someone got burned by him last year.

Let's say youre right and he is a bit streaky and injury prone, whats the upside of Powell? You seem to be so adamant on Hood's weaknesses and have yet to say why Powell is much better.  So far this season, hes averaged liek 23 minutes per game.  At least Hood has upside when you pick him with his opportunity to step in a big role.
