Sengun is starting to show that he could be the best European player in this class, as his jaw-dropping offensive stats in one of the most competitive leagues in the world should help convince a center-needy team like Charlotte to take the plunge and make him a cornerstone of the future.
Sengun’s shooting could stand to improve, and there are some legit questions about his defense that he will need to answer, but his ability to finish with a wide array of quality post moves and rebound should finally give the Hornets a true center that can keep up with their high-octane starting lineup.
LaMelo Ball and Terry Rozier have the backcourt locked down, Gordon Hayward is going to do his thing, and the combination of Miles Bridges and PJ Washington at power forward should be fun to watch. Sengun could be the final piece that gets them in the postseason after several close misses.
The Spurs went two whole decades without having to worry about the frontcourt, but San Antonio could stand to upgrade at the power forward spot next to center Jakob Poeltl. The Spurs love to develop raw talent, and the next great San Antonio big man might end up being Jones.
Jones is a newcomer to basketball who had some substandard production on the offensive end, so he is a complete projection with bust potential. With that potential to crash out comes some insane athletic ability, a promising shooting stroke, and the defensive chops to guard multiple positions with ease.
We know Jones can levitate, swat away shots, and blow by slower bigs. he just needs some help on the finer points of basketball. Quite literally, there is no one better to help him reach his potential than Gregg Popovich. Jones, Dejounte Murray, and Derrick White would make up quite the interesting young core for the Spurs.
