There isnt anyone in the NBA that I know of thats a 6'6 PF who guards multiple positions and does nothing on offence.
Pj is interesting, he has a pf mindset in a sg body but hasn't been able to really fit at the 2,3 or 4 - not at the NBA level anyways - too slow for sg and undersized to play the 3-4. Just a depth acquisition as I'm sure you can slot him in at the 2-3-4 if needed for spot minutes. I wouldn't expect anything more or consider him a lock down defender (or above average for that matter)at 4 positions. That's a reach. Players like Bowen, Tyson or Wallace who can lock their positions down will get paid big. If PJ was even close to that or better - guard 4 positions - he would be here in the NBA already.
