I wonder how good this guy will be in a few years.

He has the potential to be a Kevin Garnett-level player. Whether he will is another question because KG is an all-time great, but his game and his build/style is very similar. What really set KG apart as a PF was his playmaking ability. JJJ is already very good on defense and a capable scorer - those skills will improve with time, as will his ability to grab boards. If he can start setting up plays for his teammates though, that'll push him up to a new level.


FWIW I think he has the highest ceiling in this year's rookie class. In 2-3 years, I can see him putting up 19/10 with 2 blocks and close to 2 steals. Right now, he's averaging 11.5/5/1.4 with 1.0 stls and 1.8 blks on 45%/76% shooting. I expect these numbers to improve after the ASB.

just traded Kanter to get on JJJ's train.

Saw that Green is returning in 2 weeks, what will happen, will JJJ keep his starting role?

Green is mediocre. JJJ is already better than him on defense and most likely on offense. No reason why Green would go back to starting. Memphis looks to be all in on the kid.
