Are y'all that excited?  I like Zubac's upside, but he wasn't exactly consistent with the Lakers.

 

With the Clips, JaM, Muscala (yeah), Gallo, and Harrell playing C, I'm not excited.

 

JaM can take 5-7 minutes at C.

Muscala with random DNPs, PF minutes and C minutes at about 8 total, 0-2 min at C in blowouts.

Gallo plays some small ball C at about 2-3 minutes.

Harrell gets the lions share of C minutes, at about 20-25 minutes.

 

Zubac only needs about 20 minutes at C to be relevant, but for a wire stud?  He should be getting 25, and I don't think that happens.

Yee, I'm a fool.  Too many trades.  They literally just traded Muscala FOR Zubac/Beasley, haha.  My bad.

Couldn't Harrell play the 4? Zubac, Harrell, Gallinari, Beverly, and Shai with Lou as 6th man. Green can backup C and PF.

Still have the same stance as the previous post?  With Muscla gone?

 

Well, I'm not excited for Zubac, but it's more apprehensive rather than a flat out UGH.  If you've got a drop, go ahead.  I just feel like the trade deadline opened up opportunities everywhere.  That and I just don't know where he'll get his minutes.

That's what should happen.

Zubac, Harrell, Gallinari, Beverly, and Shai

 

Ah really?  That's some nasty spacing issues there.  Shai's not a great shooter.  Pat Bev is fine and so is Gallo, but I'm still not expecting either to be huge threats from deep anyway.  Best case scenario is mixing and matching with Lou constantly jumping into the lineup.

Am I missing something. Gortat gone. Muscala gone..Boban gone...Even Tobias.... other than trez and jam...I don’t see Zu not getting any burn. 

 

Zupac train all aboard. 

There were parts of the season where 1 of the Centers werent even in the rotation like Gortat. With Trez seeing 30-35+ I dont see Zubac seeing more than 22-25 min consistently. We'll find out tho

I’m apprehensive considering he couldn’t beat out JaVale before. Kid probably has a bright future but I just don’t think he’s ready right now. I’m thinking he’ll have a few good games here and there where he reminds you of his upside but mostly will be inconsistent at best

I dunno what's more exciting (and more inconsistent), the FREE ZUBAC movement, or the FREE BOBAN movement.  

 

It seems like Rotoworld never learns its lesson with some of these hype centers.

I remember when Harrell was so boring and quietly underappreciated to own, but he's one of the best wire adds this year.
