4.25fta(not a good free throw shooter)
Pretty damn solid numbers imo. Needs to improve his shooting and defense but he has all the tools at his diposal.(playing out his natural position of sf I might add although on offense he tends to be a sf but on defense he has to try to be pf)
Lets compare him to probably the best pf coming out of college, sullinger.
19.6ppg on 56.4% shooting on 12.9 shots.
Lets compare him to Terrence Jones, a SF
17.5ppg on 45.5% on 13.5 shots
To say he is a second round pick is absolutely ridiculous. He is a top talent in the draft right now. Easily top 3 or 4 depending upon who is picking. I personally prefer Terrence Jones because he brings some things the team could definately use but Perry Jones is a potential star in the league, and coming out of this weak draft that is nothing to thumb your nose about.
Sports writters are spors writters are not NBA scouts for a reason
then again you think he's got KD written all over him yet Durant didnt make only 1 3 pointer his whole college career like Jones, nor did Durant only get 14(not 16) PPG
he's a late 2nd to UDFA without the name Perry Jones. Sullinger absolutley dominates and embarrasses Jones in that comparison nobody will take him in the top 5 thats lock
he's a no talent hack
