Im exited to see him in a raps uniform but i also understannd that it wont happen overnight and YES!!! there are way too many JV thread!!!!
next year, more euro experience. rookie season, plenty of mins (like ed,) some really good games, some bad games. Sophmore year, pretty much the same but with more good games and maybe a few more mins. 3rd year (4 years time,) we really see him start to produce, maybe push to be a starter. 4th year with raps, solid starter. That's a long time frame but then it fits in with the rebuild. That's why i think colangelo wants a vet C. Even chandler at 29 would be well into his 30s by the time we could expect val to push for starter.
