Tbh, this team needs any big time talent to build around.
I understand you guys have some bad memories with Bosh. But a young Bosh
is great when all you got is DeMar and maybe Davis.
That said, I don't see the comparison. Yes, physically they are very similar right now, and Valanciunas certainly has the touch to develop mid range game.
But I doubt Valanciunas is done filling out. According to his draftexpress report, he's not even done growing.
He also has an incredibly strong motor.
And he is willing to play hard on D against physically stronger opponents - even though the skills are lacking for now.
I think Pau is a much more accurate projection. Idk if the talent is there, but in terms of style they should be close.
