Maybe it’s just recency bias with the Grizzlies drafting him last night, but anyone else see a little bit of David Roddy in Tyreke Key’s game? Bigger guys, back to the basket players, can shoot from the perimeter, can defend, too undersized to play the 4-5 in most matchups but can play multiple positions.

Roddy has 3” and 50 lbs on Key. I think it’s true they are undersized players for the post, but Key has much stronger guard skills than Roddy, which you’d expect. Roddy reminds me more Admiral Schofield, I think. I guess I see your Key comparison, too, though it may be a little more abstract because of their size differences.

Yea I think the size is where they definitely contrast, I just see some similarities in their game style.
