Musa with an ugly game.

He is going to need to show better efficiency and defense at the next level. Though, he gets to the line alot.

Satoranksi continues to impress.
Any idea if he's playing for the Nets this season or not? I tend to think he's not quite ready for a significant NBA rotation role yet, but he's not very far off either. Not sure if the D-League is the right place for him...he'll just learn to be a chucker there.

You are right. I don't think the D-League is the right place for him.

I'm hopeful about him because of his handling amd ability to attack. If he were a chucker without the abiltiy to get inside and draw fouls then I would be worried.

I don't know what to expect...how is his 3pt shot going to look from nba range? how is that going to affect his efficiency? I don't see much intangibles with him, but his scoring arsenal and even passing ability is great for someone so young.

It doesn't look like he has great impact yet. This BIH team should be much better with Nurkic and him playing signicant minutes.

His defense is worrisome. That's the only "real" issue I have.

He should get the Malik Monk treatment imo. And I have no idea what the Net's intentions are with him.

What about *gulp* Rodney Hood as a comp? I forget, has that been talked about yet?

I don't think they are actually similar at all...other than being shitty defenders.

Taller Jordan Crawford maybe ? lol

....Or Manu Ginobili without the defense!

Tall scoring guards who get bulldozed on defense like flimsy skeleton NPCs from a 90's video game?

I generally don't like Ginobili comps because people forget what an amazing athlete prime Ginobili was. Musa doesn't have the same strength or quickness, and that'll make it more difficult for him to create efficiently in 1-on-1 situations. Also, obviously, he'll probably never be the same kind of passer Ginobili was. Taller Jordan Crawford sounds pretty close to the mark, lol.

I think he's just a very high risk high reward kind of prospect. Especially in the early going, he'll probably have nights where he looks like he doesn't belong in the NBA and nights when he looks like the next big thing.

Not very high risk considering where he was picked though

I live in DC and it really pissed me off that the Wizards gave up on Satoransky...I know we are not a contender but I wanted to see a quality product

After the Turkey game you have to wonder if Serbia will destroy the US squad...

Lot of good games today. Man, I'd really love to see a Calathes/de Colo backcourt. Shame we'll probably never see those two in the NBA again.

USA will face France in the quarterfinals, very likely Serbia in the semifinals, and then probably Spain or Australia in the finals. Nothing easy there.
