Looks like Xavier may have gotten a really good pickup with 6-8 forward Jason Carter from Ohio.

Joel Ntambwe, a 6-9 forward at UNLV, is intriguing. Averaged 11.8 ppg and 5.5 rpg (18.7 DR%) in 24.1 mpg as a freshman. Shot 38.6% from beyond the arc, low turnover rate (12.3%) and efficient offense overall (110.1 ORtg per KenPom). But I know absolutely nothing about him beyond the stats.

Maybe Katin can be our connection to land him.

Tai Strickland transferring from Wisconsin. My favorite part of this is that Wisconsin fans were insisting that 5-star DJ Carton didn't include them in his final 6 because he was scared he couldn't beat Strickland for playing time.

Anyone have insight on Stone? I'm intrigued by the idea of playing a second big alongside Theo/Ed, but he'd likely need to be competent on corner 3's to fit Wojo's offense. 6'8" 250 who shoots 39% from 3 seems like it could fit that bill.

Tore up his knee in January, so that's obviously a risk, but could this guy come off the bench to give us a different look and more size?

A guy I know just told me that when the Strickland news broke again. I completely forgot that was a thing lol.
He also claims that DJ Carton said that Wisconsin was his dream school, but then Gard got Strickland and scared him away. 
And this is coming from a person who is normally pretty logical and level headed. Simply amazing.

Former Marquette commit Philip Flory is on the move again. He was supposed to have a big role for Albany this season...but broke his foot again...twice. Only played in six games. Really unfortunate story, he had a lot of promise before the repeated injuries. I hope he can find good health and somehow still gets the opportunity to play ball at the college level.

Was a huge mistake for him to try and come back this year after the injury. I remember reading about it when he said he was going to give it a try and play through the injury. He had a solid initial season at Seton Hall for a walk on, actually played in non junk time and parlayed that into a full scholarship and something potentially good at Albany. Could have sat out this year , healed and  the future would have been bright. My advice at this point for him is to go D2, get a scholarship somewhere , and have fun playing basketball.

I was thinking yesterday about what a might-have-been this year was for the women's team. It seems like McCoy's career was cut short, Blockton had her injury this year (and never quite got back to last year's BEPOY level), Davenport misses the end of the season, which completely changed their postseason outlook. They had easily a Sweet 16 and maybe even a Final Four team if they have the full roster as expected, but instead they go 1-1 in the tourney and bow out on an incredibly fluky three from A&M.

Agreed.  The end result for the women is probably MORE disappointing than what happened to the men.  Both crashed out earlier than expected, but the ceiling for the women was WAY higher than the men.  Injuries just killed a promising squad full of seniors.  That was probably the best team in MUWBB history, and should have been a Sweet Sixteen team AT LEAST.

I agree completely. It sucked for the men because the end of the year always sucks, but for the women, it was the end of an era. That was the best graduating class in school history. They'll be okay next year, but nothing like this crew that had 2 of the top-3 all time scorers (and 5 of the top-15), 2 of the top-10 rebounders, & 4 of the top-10 assists leaders.

Agreed. It's the same reason that 2009 was so disappointing, and frankly Blue's departure in 2013 because it completely changed the potential of the 2014 team. Any time those "what might have been" teams come up short, it's more disappointing than when the team that's returning everyone bows out early because you know they get another kick at the can.

I'd prefer Duruji. Harvey is a low efficiency player on a high efficiency offense. Give me the stretch 4 that was one of the best players on his team over a guy who struggled to get high major minutes on an ACC team that didn't play in the NCAA the last two years. High school offers don't do as much for me as collegiate production.

Most of these are traditional transfers, so not looking for them to play until the 2020-21 season after Markus, Sam, Sacar and Ed move on.

Like I said earlier, Joel Ntambwe of UNLV caught my attention. He's a 6-9 F who started as a freshman and led the team in 3-point percentage and offensive efficiency. He scored 18 points and 7 rebounds in a 77-74 loss to Illinois -- then followed it up with 22 points and 11 rebounds in a 92-90 OT win against BYU.

If you are talking grad transfers, the list isn't very long. I see maybe 8 guys rights now that I think could crack our rotation next season. It's still early so there may be more.

I wouldn't mind adding another guy who can play the 5 via grad transfer. Shakur Juiston out of UNLV and Nate Sestina out of Bucknell are names I would consider. Derrik Smits out of Valpo or Yanni Wetzel out Vandy if we wanted a quality third center on the roster. Rayjon Tucker out of Little Rock doesn't play the 5 but I think he could do well at most programs. Christian Keeling put up 18 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, and 4 steals for Charleston Southern when they visited the Fiserv while shooting 8/13 from the floor. If coaches aren't convinced that Greg/Sacar/Koby can fill that slashing guard role, he could be an option.

Since when did the "transfer portal" become a thing? I thought players simply had to announce they wished to transfer, and coaches had to release them. Is there some kind of extradimensional gate players walk through that instantly transports them to their new school? Is it like a web portal? Or perhaps it's a physical doorway at NCAA headquarters; players must knock first for the opportunity to transfer.

Yessir, that is what "the book" says is the best way to play craps. Theoretically, it gives players the best odds of beating the house -- not just at the craps table but in the entire casino.

But I find it a little too robotic and boring. I like to get all the inside points covered, and/or play some hard-ways every now and then. It's supposed to be fun. I guess I'm willing to pay for that.

There will be, but this was a worthwhile comment I saw on Twitter:

Quote from: MGRADS
So the whole Jellyfam has transferred. Stop letting video guys who only like dunks & crossovers influence who is good because of the views they get. Views & Movements do not equal ballgame. It equals profit for the mixtape company.

Those Jellyfam players got a lot of hype but, other than Naz Reid, may have been overrated. Sidney Wilson didn't do much at UConn (after leaving St John's), Jordan Walker left Seton Hall for Tulane, now Quinerly on the move?

Reminds me of Juan Anderson. Good kid, glad he came to MU, but his mixtape made him look like the next Evan Turner. Mixtapes are fun, but don't always tell you the truth about a player.

Yessir, that is what "the book" says is the best way to play craps. Theoretically, it gives players the best odds of beating the house -- not just at the craps table but in the entire casino.

But I find it a little too robotic and boring. I like to get all the inside points covered, and/or play some hard-ways every now and then. It's supposed to be fun. I guess I'm willing to pay for that.

Actually "Don't Pass line" plus the others gives you best odds.

Eric Williams Jr., Duquesne's most talented player, announced his transfer yesterday.  6-6 wing player who averaged 14 pts, 8 boards both his freshman and sophomore years.  I've seen him play a few times - incredibly athletic, but can play a little out of control at times.  He's from the Detroit area, so there's a good chance he knows our Detroit triumvirate. 

Supposedly he already has a visit set up with Mizzou.

Actually, looking around a little bit, I think it's 0.05% better odds to play the Don'ts -- 5 cents per $100 wagered.

When betting the light side - unless you're playing one Pass bet at a time (boring) - you'll always have chips on the table after a win... sure, you can pull back your place and odds bets when you hit your point, but nobody ever does it, which virtually guarantees that every player betting the light side won't walk away until the board 7's-out.

Conversely, the primary advantage to the dark side is that on a 7-out, no action remains, which makes it extremely convenient to walk away from the table on a win. 

The last bet may not seem like it matters after you've been at the table all night, but considering that players have a tendency to wager more at the end of a session, whether they're winning or losing, this really messes up the player models that calculate the "natural odds" of a game (given a certain set of rules). Natural odds are calculated based on the assumption that everything is random, including when the player walks away from the table, but the natural odds are often not the "true odds" at a craps table, because not only is the final bet often more than the average wager, but playing the light side means that said final bet will always be a loss.  So the "true odds" of playing the dark side are actually much better than 0.5%... depending on how much and how long you play, it could be more than 5% if you live by the 20x bankroll rule of thumb.

The casinos know this... which is why they help perpetuate the negative stigma of the dark side.  Getting dirty looks from other players is one thing, but nothing brings out the stick's passive-aggression like someone playing the dark side at a full table.

Taylor was going to transfer if Buzz stayed so scratch him.....don't think any of those guys were interested in playing for Buzz again(Duane maybe not sure) and Cohen obviously never played for him.

Don't think the fact that they were at MU would have prevented Buzz from pursuing them if he wanted them.

He didn't exactly have the warm and fuzzies for MU when he left......and the feeling was obviously mutual among many he left behind.

There are two reasons for that:

1) The staff was/is confident in the players they already have (and are thus stashing the scholarships) OR
2) The staff was not prepared/anticipating the Hausers' transfers, so they are attempting to play catch up with the relationships of the current transfer list.

In either case, there are zero grad transfer options that can replace the production of the Hausers for next year.  Might as well just use them for a traditional transfer or late incoming freshman.

I think we couldn't seriously get involved until 48 hours ago. I know the hope is to land a grad transfer but we are getting into the game very late. I posted this before:

I'm working on an update that should come out in the next few days.

But if I'm Wojo, I'm looking at:

Kerry Blackshear
Rayjon Tucker Jr
Justin Pierce
Daniel Utomi
Keith Stone
Matt Ryan
Alihan Demir
Pat Andree

The top two virtually make up for a lost Hauser. The others would go a long way towards filling the gaps they left behind.

Since then Justin Pierce has trimmed his list to three, Daniel Utomi committed to USC, and Pat Andree committed to NC State. Tucker Jr has already gone on a visit to West Virginia and set up a visit to Memphis. Grad transfer options at PF are already thin. Lots of guards still available. We may be too late to the table for any of these except Blackshear (who the whole world is after). Best bet may be to hope that a good grad transfer PF emerges later (which will happen) and go all in. If not, we are going to playing a lot of four guard sets next season. We can still win a lot of games that way, but it severely lowers our ceiling IMHO.

In either case, there are zero grad transfer options that can replace the production of the Hausers for next year.  Might as well just use them for a traditional transfer or late incoming freshman.

6-10 David Skogman from Waukesha West is someone Mark Miller is saying MU is showing some interest in. Has a good skillset for a 6-10 player and has some athletic ability.  18.3 points and 12.7 rebounds a game. Continuing to develop physically.

Add a player like Skogman and Torrence to the 2019 class and each class has 3 players in it.

Haanif Cheatham to Nebraska. #donedeal

Hoiberg is off to a good start.

Omaha World-Herald

Haanif Cheatham committed to Nebraska on Saturday.

The 6-foot-5, 195-pound graduate transfer from Florida Gulf Coast is currently on an official visit in Lincoln.

Cheatham told The World-Herald everything just felt right, so he pulled the trigger.

“My visit has been great. I’ve enjoyed everything. It’s been nothing but good times,” Cheatham said.

Cheatham averaged 13.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists last season at FGCU. He shot 45.4% from the floor and 36.4% from 3-point range. Cheatham’s season was cut off after 10 games due to a shoulder injury. He had surgery on that shoulder in December and says he’s 100 percent.

Cheatham transferred from Marquette to Florida Gulf Coast for his senior year. He’ll now finish up as a Husker.

Cheatham was recruited by Matt Abdelmassih. The two knew each other from their Big East connections — Cheatham played at Marquette when Abdelmassih coached at St. John's. When Abdelmassih went to Nebraska, the two reconnected.

“It’s been great. We’ve been working on that relationship every day,” Cheatham said.

Cheatham says he’ll be on campus this summer and will bring leadership into the locker room. He said he'll play whatever role Fred Hoiberg needs.

“I’m ready to rock and roll," he said.

I think a bench forward that can be a 3 and D guy is the best fit. Keith Stone is off the board, but Demir & Matt Ryan seem to fit that bill.

I also like Skogman. Big body that can shoot & run the floor. If he's healthy, I think he's a great long term prospect. And I'll admit, if you're going to offer shadow anyone right now, it's Chris Beard.

Chart puny ended up being one of three guards on the roster.  The Drexel kid will be a  6'9 guy on a roster with Theo, ed, BB, and Cain.   With an offense that will be 3 guard oriented.   He is a luxury, not a projected starter.

Blackshear and RayJon Tucker would both be immediate starters and fill huge needs IMHO. Not sure if MU has any chance with either. At the moment, all other grad transfers either don't fit our most immediate needs (shooting forward) or would be bench players for us. There are also still grad transfers that haven't been revealed yet.

Tucker is the one I'd most like. Blackshear is a massive impact player, but we seem to have the 5 covered and frankly I think he's as good as committed to Kentucky. A 6'7" wing that can stretch the floor would be perfect. Really not many others on the market that I even think could be expected to challenge for a starting role, at least not at a position of need.
Title: Re: Transfer List
Post by: Marcus92 on April 23, 2019, 11:14:16 AM
If we go the graduate transfer route, I'm of course hoping we can find another impact player or two. Tough defenders, rebounders and post-up players are at the top of my wish list.

However, even if a grad transfer does nothing more than provide depth off the bench like Matt Heldt did, that's still valuable to the team. If you recall, Theo and Ed have a tendency to get into foul trouble. Then it'll be up to newcomers like Koby, Greg, Ike, Dexter and possibly Symir (along with improvement across the rest of the roster) to make up for Sam and Joey's production.

If they can't get grad transfers that are impact guys(starters for MU next year), whether you can "re use" the scholarship for 2020 or not, then I'm not interested in just adding "bodies" as grad transfers. At that point, I'd just rather play with what they have and use the schollies on traditional transfers(preferably ones with 3 years left).

Normally I would agree, but the problem is this team has no depth.  We have one freshman who wasn't really highly ranked and seems a bit of a project.  We have Ike who has been hurt and hardly can seem at this point like a reliable player. 

That means eight guys who have played somewhat significant minutes.  Sorry but they are just going to need more than that because at some point someone will be injured.

Here is how I would prefer filling the last three scholarships.

1. Symir reclass
2. Grad transfer, even if its the 7th or 8th guy in the rotation
3. Traditional transfer who doesn't become eligible until 2020-21

Maybe in lieu of #2 you throw a scholarship at Skogman to see what he can do.  But if you end up doing only two of the three above, it isn't the worst thing in the world.  But they need bodies.

I think you have to count on Koby, Greg, & development from other players being that replacement. You certainly won't have the same roster on paper that was there with the Hausers, but if this year is the benchmark, I'm not sure the talent is really that much less in 2020 than it was in 2019. It's different, for sure, but not necessarily less than.

Again, adding a grad transfer - even a stiff - in no way impacts the class of 2020 and beyond. There's literally no reason to be against adding much-needed depth to the roster for next season via grad transfer, even if that depth is an 8th-10th man.

Just because a guy isn’t going to lead us to immediate final 4 contenders doesn’t mean it a bad pick up. Grabbing guys for the sake of grabbing guys is one thing, but grabbing guys that can be depth prices in the front court would be very nice to have around.

I see both sides here... obviously a sudden need, but I don't see him giving much more than 5 fouls at the 5 in 2019/20.  He will not be some Joey/Sam replacement level player in 19/20. Give him a year and you never know, but you'd have to compare that to some of the realistic 6'9-6'11 targets we have for 2020. Most likely a kid like Garcia or Sibley wouldn't be scared away by him, but there's only so many scholarships to give. I think the Akanno signing is sort of the issue here.  At this point would prefer to have a project stretch 4/5 vs project guard for 2019. Obviously a lot has happened since that signing, but having two guys on scholarships who on paper are limited/projects is a bit much for MU IMO.

Putting Skogman aside, I think this is an interesting point/topic. What makes you believe that Matt H would not see the floor next year? Curious on your thoughts.

From my view, and as it stands, Morrow + Theo ought to find time on the court together in 19-20. If we had a Matt H-type 3rd string C, perhaps even more likely to see that lineup due to the tail coverage. If John and Morrow are among the 5 best players then Wojo must do what it takes to get them into that lineup (more than just a pure time split). We will play some physical teams and it might be best for us to play these two for 25 minutes apiece... Can't be done without a fallback, IMO.

Obviously, there are all sorts of qualifiers to the above including Theo's fouling, but those have been debated ad nauseum.

If we had a Matt H-type 3rd string C, perhaps even more likely to see that lineup due to the tail coverage. If John and Morrow are among the 5 best players then Wojo must do what it takes to get them into that lineup (more than just a pure time split). We will play some physical teams and it might be best for us to play these two for 25 minutes apiece... Can't be done without a fallback, IMO.

Obviously, there are all sorts of qualifiers to the above including Theo's fouling, but those have been debated ad nauseum.

Matt would play. He is not very good which is why Goose contends he wouldn't play, but given the roster conditions he would play maybe 10mpg out of necessity.

We need somebody besides Theo and Ed, for a couple really important reasons:

1. Fouls
As the third big off the bench, Matt played 10 or more minutes in 6 games last season. Only one of them was a complete blowout (14 minutes against Southern). The others were all critical games:

MU v. KU, 12 min, Theo and Ed w/ 4 fouls ea. (68-77 L)
MU v. KSU, 10 min, Theo and Ed w/ 4 fouls ea. (83-71 W)
MU at Gtown, 10 min, Theo w/ 4 fouls, Ed DNP (74-71 W)
MU at Xavier, 20 min, Theo w/ 5 fouls, Ed 7 min (87-72 W)
MU at Nova, 10 min, Theo and Ed w/ 4 fouls ea. (61-67 L)

Can Ike play the 3rd man? I hope so. You're not necessarily looking for a star, just someone who can hold down the position. One way or another we need more depth inside -- both for the 2019-20 season and beyond.

2. Illness and injury
Fortunately, this hasn't been a huge concern the past couple seasons. But what happens in even the most mundane scenario: Theo or Ed get hit with the flu and can't play for a game? Frontcourt depth gives you more flexibility to deal with the unexpected.

Scholarships are 1 year deals.  If the kid sucks, so what.  Cut him and re issue the scholarship to someone else.  This isn't rocket science.  Burning anything more than 1 scholarship to keep open for a mid year transfer is lunacy IMO.  Plus mid year transfers generally are not guys you really want as they've already proven to be mid season quitters, so I generally advocate for using all your scholarships. 

Symir + best grad possible + best traditional transfer we can get our hands on seems like a good use of the final 3 spots.

The two more years comment is kind of telling as well.  He should theoretically be able to play 3 years for sure, and would very likely get a waiver for a 6th year (4th year on court).

Ike is very unlikely to ever play a game in an MU uniform.  We basically have 4 openings.

Brew

Had you heard of the kid being MU radar prior to a week ago? You, and others, feel next years recruiting class is going to be a home run, so save the spot for next season. There is no need to rush into filling spots. This is what I was talking about when I said long term success is the ultimate goal.

I knew Skogman was getting high major interest before the Hausers left, & that MU was talking to him the next day indicates they had already done due diligence on him.

As far as next year, as much as I'd love the Jalen Suggs/Nimari Burnett/Jalen Johnson/Jamari Sibley/Dawson Garcia class, I'm not counting on anything.

If Skogman is healthy (he had a heart attack on the court 10 months ago) he has some great attributes. Size, shooting, rebounding, he's a legit prospect. He's an ideal redshirt candidate. Sit and strengthen, learn from Theo & Ed, then start contributing. I think the redshirt is underutilized & programs like Wisconsin, Gonzaga, & Villanova have shown how much value it can have. Here we've seen how much better Sacar got, saw Rowsey & Joey hit the ground running, & will get the chance to see how Elliott comes off it.

I agree about long term success, and unless you're Duke or Kentucky, that means having some guys that will likely contribute more as upperclassmen and provide value in practice while they learn this level. And worse case scenario, they transfer if they are out of their depth.

If you could guarantee me those above five names, it would be a different story, but my guess is we more likely land 2 or at most 3 of them. Stars are great, but you need program guys too.

One other thought on Skogman...just because the offer wasn't there pre-Hauser doesn't mean it isn't worth it now. I think it's a safe assumption that most of our minutes for next year are spoken for by the 10 remaining scholarship players, which gives the staff even more freedom to use the last scholarships. If that means a grad transfer, a sit-out transfer, a 2020 reclassification, or a 2019 project, so be it.

If anything, the departure of the Hausers made a guy like Skogman a better option. Who knows, maybe the only thing separating Marquette from a Skogman offer was the thought of the Hausers returning & Torrence reclassifying.

One avenue I hadn't thought of that MU could possibly explore(not sure what's out there, because I don't think there is a public list anywhere), is someone who de-committed somewhere for 2019 due to a Coaching change. My main concern is next year right now, and taking as few steps back as possible from the "top 10" status they would have had with the Hausers. 2020 will take care of itself. It's funny because we have gotten TONS of recruiting news lately about MU on 2020 kids, which is an oddity in the Wojo regime...and yet, there has been virtually NOTHING about next year and who they might be looking at(possibly a couple of "body" grad transfers") other than Skogman and interest in him, but again, as good as his upside may be, he does NOTHING for them this next year, which again is my concern right now.

For what it's worth, just throwing this out there but the way I read the "play and play two more years" was that he wants to play (this year) and play two more years.

Now, whether he can and be effective is a huge variable.  I think we'd all love to see him able to suit up.  Even if he can get 100 minutes this year, that could be really good for his morale and to set him up for the future if he can stay healthy.

With all due respect Brew, they should be aiming higher then this..having to rely on Bailey/Cain as starters... great kids, they work hard, and undoubtedly will improve during the offseason..but they are best as role players..one of them starting??

Why are you so fixated on the dumb “Sam and Joey’s replacements need to match Sam and Joey’s production?”  We have two guys who didn’t play one minute for us this past season who might be able to replace some of what the Hausers provided...the guys who start in their place don’t need to do what they did.  We have more options.

The idea that we will get players who mimic their production is not reality. Most likely, McEwen steps in as a starter. Then one of Bailey, Cain, or an as yet unknown steps into the other spot. And you hope the two new starters, along with progression from the rest of the team, offsets the loss.

For your own sake, you need to accept that we aren't going into the transfer market this off-season & finding two guys that can replicate the production the Hausers provided. Only one team in the country will do that this summer, and that's Wisconsin, Michigan State, Virginia, or Iowa.

Hey man, you have been beating the "expectations can't change just because the Hausers left" drum yourself. So...why should they?? Granted Joey's production can be made up for, or close to it, with Bailey/Cain.

Program expectations shouldn't change. But Kerry Blackshear isn't walking through that door and there aren't any other proven difference makers out there.

The burden will fall on the players that are here and the grad transfers should be expected to be bench players because that's the likely reality.

I think Wojo needs to deliver. I just don't see that many home runs among the grads at a position of need. Yeboah looks as promising as any of the mid and low majors.

I'm telling you you are underselling Shakur Juiston..Maybe you just haven't seen enough of him to really know..but he is NOT solely a back to the basket player..he can step out to 15 feet. in 2017-2018 he shot 58-127  45% on 2 point jump shots.

He was the #1 rated JUCO player when he committed to UNLV. He's a better scorer, and better rebounder than either Ed or Theo. He would be a difference maker.

Another Creighton transfer special. The Blue Jays picked up Antwann Jones from Memphis. I guess that NIT game at home against Memphis earlier this year was an unofficial visit. He will sit one year and have three years of eligibility.

Looks like the Jays also picked up a quality outside shooter in Jalen Windham who decommited from Georgia State after their coach left. The Creighton brand of offense instantly appealed to the young man.

Thank you. I appreciate it. Definitely a good perimeter defender that was at least known out of HS as a sharpshooter from 3. De and 3 guards are always nice.

6'5 wing Isaiah Moss from Iowa just entered the transfer portal.  Went to Simeon in Chicago.  Averaged 9.2 ppg and shot 42% from 3PT.  You'd have to think we would be reaching out, right?  He'd be immediately eligible.

Maybe MU reaches out but I am not sure it's a perfect fit. 

He doesn't really address the rebounding issues. If he was 6-8 and could rebound, then definitely go after him.

We could use another shooter. I don't know anything about him, but if he is tough and can play some D, I'm pretty sure we could find playing time for a 42% 3-point shooter, no?

I know nothing about his defense.  His two point shooting is so bad it pretty much negates his 3 point shooting.  He can shoot FT; nearly 80%.

He'd be ok, I guess,  but I'd much rather take a long term prospect like Jemarl Baker.

One spot is going to be held for Torrence to enroll 2nd semester  (my best guess).  I prefer one traditional transfer and one grad transfer for the other two spots. But it depends who Wojo can land.

It'd be interesting to see a shot chart/heat map on him, given the disparity between these numbers. If his 3pt and FT shooting is solid, I'd be surprised if his midrange game was bad. Maybe he's just bad off the bounce/at the rim? I like to think that if the offense features more ball movement this season, that deficiency could get hidden.

The MU twitterverse seems very anti Jayce Johnson.  I get it a little bit, he doesn't seem like an awesome fit, but I will always take depth.  Even if he is used purely as a depth piece at the 5.  Theo fouls like crazy and Ed has always been a big injury concern.

Johnson commits fouls at a rate close to theo’s. It would be hammer ball down there for sure. Not sure he’s a good fit but also wouldn’t mind having the extra depth there. I don’t think morrow or John have the skills to move to the 4 unfortunately.

Yah, I mean he doesn't really get me excited either.  But I'd definitely take the depth.  We're an Ed or Theo injury away from being dangerously short on anything resembling front court depth.
Title: Re: Transfer List

Yes, please.  We need another rebounder/rim protector. 

This would allow Ed to get more PT at the 4, which is one of the reasons he transferred in the first place.
I would no mind seeing a lineup of:
Theo or Jayce
Ed or Jamal
Brendan or Sacar
Greg or Kobe
Markus or Dexter
Title: Re: Transfer List
Post by: TSmith34 on May 07, 2019, 02:24:04 PM
Other than Ed saying he wanted to play the 4, is there anything at all indicating that he has the skill set to do so?  I mean, we all saw his results when shooting from outside of 5 feet, and the stats experts can correct me if I am wrong but I didn't see good results when he was asked to guard in space.

How is he going to be effective at the 4 at either end of the court?
Title: Re: Transfer List
Post by: TAMU Garcia on May 07, 2019, 02:28:42 PM
In the right offensive system, Ed could absolutely play the 4 with Theo/Jayce. It would require a new offensive look for us that we have not seen in the Wojo era. If the staff are willing to go in that direction it could absolutely work. Or they could not change and Jayce would push Theo and Ed for the starter's job. He'd be a valuable pickup either way.

I think he answer to that question is no.  The stats bear our that he was a pretty horrific defender on contesting outside shots. Obviously the sample size is small and he played the 5 either 100% to close to 100% while he was on the court, so ya never know.  But I think the concern is that he wouldn't stretch the floor at all at the 4 and would struggle to guard quicker PFs.

But it's also probably fairly rare to have two starters for a perceived top 10 team being brothers.

Mustapha Herron was 1st in points and 3rd in rebounds per game for SEC champion Auburn and he decided to transfer, and even AFTER the transfer Auburn went into the season ranked 11th/12th.  If he had a freshman brother who was starting at Auburn they probably would've seen 2 starters transfer as well.

I haven't seen any updates on transfers where Marquette is pursuing.

The only one who somehwat intrigues me (at this point) is Brandonn Kamga from High Point. 

SF, 6-5, 220, can play PF in spots due to 7 FT wing span, very respectable at the 3PT line, not very quick though

maybe he would be interested in spot minutes at the highest level to open up the floor for a team that is expected to be pretty good.

When betting the light side - unless you're playing one Pass bet at a time (boring) - you'll always have chips on the table after a win... sure, you can pull back your place and odds bets when you hit your point, but nobody ever does it, which virtually guarantees that every player betting the light side won't walk away until the board 7's-out.

Conversely, the primary advantage to the dark side is that on a 7-out, no action remains, which makes it extremely convenient to walk away from the table on a win. 

The last bet may not seem like it matters after you've been at the table all night, but considering that players have a tendency to wager more at the end of a session, whether they're winning or losing, this really messes up the player models that calculate the "natural odds" of a game (given a certain set of rules). Natural odds are calculated based on the assumption that everything is random, including when the player walks away from the table, but the natural odds are often not the "true odds" at a craps table, because not only is the final bet often more than the average wager, but playing the light side means that said final bet will always be a loss.  So the "true odds" of playing the dark side are actually much better than 0.5%... depending on how much and how long you play, it could be more than 5% if you live by the 20x bankroll rule of thumb.

The casinos know this... which is why they help perpetuate the negative stigma of the dark side.  Getting dirty looks from other players is one thing, but nothing brings out the stick's passive-aggression like someone playing the dark side at a full table.

You are saying words and I know what those words mean.  But I have no idea what this post is saying.  Gambling, like so many other things, truly has a language all to it's own.    :o

You get 13 scholarships.  I'd take him in a heartbeat.  Maybe he doesn't work out.  Oh well.

I'd also take Kevin Durant on the Bucks despite his history of leg injuries and missing all of one season and most of another.
