Looney is a PF IIRC.

From the videos I've watched he was handling the ball, but that could have been because of the teammates around him or so have you.

Yeah, ESPN lists him as a PF, and Rivals has him a SF. Really, he is a point forward who has a little Kevin Durant to his game. In a traditional line-up, for him and Hubbs to be together in a backcourt, Hubbs would be playing PG and Looney at SG. Problem being, Hubbs is a SG all the way and at best, Looney is a wing player at SF. However, in a three-guard line-up with Hubbs at SG and Looney at SF, I'll concede that they could technically be in the backcourt together.

Bottom line, the two of them on the floor together at any position will be a nightmare for most opponents.

Lol, very well said! I was just going off the video and thought he was a SG. Either way would be a sight to see.

That's where the Durant comparison comes from...he can handle the ball, has guard skills, can shoot...but is 6'8"-6'9".

As Z said him and Lindsey will be up there. Also, it's not clear yet, but expect a highly rated PG to also become a top priority (maybe jaquel Richmond)
