This a big signing. It'll help a lot to absorb the scoring blow of Thornwell and Notice leaving after next season

The timing is perfect. We need a scorer for the 17-18 season because we will be hurting for one without Thornwell and Notice.

Bottom line is that he got his average by shooting a lot for a bad team. And he would be a RS Junior at the same time that Stroman is a Senior, Dozier is a Junior, and our incoming PG from NYC is a Sophomore.


Just saying, if he is the #1 prospect, the pickings are pretty slim. And if he can come in and be the Man, that is not a good reflection on the current roster. But I have not seen him play and he has some nice offers - if the coaching staff likes him, I will be behind it.
Well he's a PG, so its not like he needs to shoot 50% to be effective. See Rondo and kentucky.

I was not trying to be overly negative, just trying to look at the other side of the coin. I am very happy that we got him. 38% from three is good - hitting 1/3 of your threes is equivalent to 1/2 of your twos, and 50% plus from two is outstanding.

Observations..... Martin told Gravett that he wanted to go with more of a prototypical PG - Gravett and Holden fit that mold. That means that we are likely moving Dozier full time to SG. It may also mean that we are not feeling good about Felder qualifying, and that Stroman may be in a little more hot water than we thought.

Stroman just hasn't shown much on the floor. It's nothing to do with his incident.

Stroman is the other side of that coin, he shot less then 30% from the field...

To Felder, I think there is some merit to that thought. As to Stroman, based on what I've seen/heard, I think you're probably reading into things a little too much. (That being said, one never knows what Frank has in the back of his mind. If he's got someone out there who is a better system fit, Frank will chase them, and then he'll do everything in his power to help Stroman find a new, and comfortable home where his skillset can be properly utilized).

Nice pickup...not sure if he is a go-to first option...but he def. fills a need...looks good handling the ball, has some shooting touch. His game reminds me a lot of Gravett's, so they may rotate.

Will be here in early June, happy to get him.

The three point shooting is the thing that I like the best - it sounds like Frank reads Cockytalk. Holden, Keita and Kotsar all have the ability to shoot from outside, and Gravett's claim to fame is hitting 8 threes in the Georgia state championship game. Time to fill it from outside.

If PJ goes, have to think Holden, Kotsar, and Silva are automatic starters. Leaves the other 2 starting jobs likely between Felder, Gravett, Blanton, and Beatty.

I'd love to see Doumbia slide in at the 3 spot but he'll likely need some development before that happens.
