Well...that's interesting and super conservative. Basically hoping to make the 2 deep better to avoid losing games when Ja is hurt. But not much of a strategy for winning it all. And, unlike in college, where incremental winning can improve your stock via recruiting, incremental winning in the NBA just lands you lower on the draft boards over the years. Seems Ja would need to be missing a LOT of games for that to be your move.
Just hope KC lands where he can shine and run the team. He's too talented. Wish we could have seen him just one more year 😑
It is a long way to the ESP, but we see more and more where the higher rated players are committing early. I'd like to see Tennessee get in on the action and land some of the kids we're pursuing sooner rather than later. The "rush" is to build recruiting momentum. The same way Nico's commitment helped us draw attention, more big time guys will help us keep that attention.
