I believe I just heard Doug Gottlieb say he thinks Kyle Anderson is a better NBA prospect than Shabazz.
His reason? Kyle Anderson is about 6'9 and can play any position 1-4 and he makes guys better--true. And Shabazz is a "6'5 3 and there aren't really top guys like that in the NBA." C'mon man. James Harden.
Anderson looks like a really intriguing talent though. Power point forward that has a decent outside shot and nice handles. But he's not better than Shabazz. Too slow to be an elite guy IMO. Shabazz has some quicks plus Shabazz is a born scorer with immediately translatable scoring tools.
Nice finish through contact from Shabazz. Since he came into the game he's been a big spark for UCLA. He caught and shoot a beautiful three. Gottlieb said the free throw line extended threes are one of Shabazz's favorite spots. That's a difficult shot and I would love to have a shooter who can knock down threes in that region. Beal in the corner, Shabazz from there. The nice thing about that part of the floor if you can shoot that three is you also have a ton of room to but the ball on the court and drive the lane unlike the corner.
