I got back from the free open practice not too long ago...I was only able to stay until about 1 but here is what I noticed. Anyone who attended PLEASE feel free to comment about what you saw...
1. Timo Mozgov looked pretty good. I saw him make some nice moves dribbling the ball. He had a great put back off of a (I think) missed Gallo shot. He found a lot of space in the fast break drill...seemed like he was always open for a dunk or good low post shot (high bball IQ indicia). He still is pretty raw in terms of talent, but I liked watching him play. Based on the way they had the lineups and jerseys set up it looks like Timo will be our starter.
2. Toney Douglas looked phenomenal. Fast to the ball, making nice passes and of course always solid on defense. At the same time, I didn't fall in love with Felton. I think this is more of a time share 50/50 than we believe.
3. Anthony Randolph is raw, but he is extremely unselfish. There were lots of times where he could have taken a long jumper or a wild layup, but he passed off to a guy with a better shot. I like seeing that from a young guy...
4. Patrick Ewing Jr. wants on this team badly. He was playing very hard on defense, flying to the ball, being aggressive. I bet he makes the cut pretty easily.
5. Roger Mason Jr. definitely has a shot, but beyond that I don't really know how we use him.
Anyone else have any big notes? I left out talking about Gallo or STAT as they were about as I expected.
