Pro. It's been reported before that getting to a spot where he can make money is a major priority for him (believe his family does not come from a lot of financial stability). So while he may not be an NBA draft pick, I do wonder if he looks at a G-league or overseas deal after this year no matter what.Where would Gach go ?
Especially considering that Mutaf isn't in great shape. I don't think he put himself into the best position to get minutes.Disappointing but not surprising and you can't put this on Pitino. If he expected to play more than he has, that's on him.
You are right on limited time to tell. But what I could see was he was late on box outs allowing his guy to just move past him and was easy to dribble around in the limited time that I saw. Could easily be worked on and maybe his being out of shape led to slower feet on d.How could you tell his D was that bad? He only played 10 minutes of garbage time all season.
With Pitino doing so well with transfers and Minnesota being a basketball hotbed maybe we see more Minnesotans come home when things don’t work out.Honestly, if this opens up a spot for someone like David Roddy or Jamison Battle to transfer home next year, that would be huge for the program. Roddy is an absolute bulldog (like Jordan Murphy in guard form) and Jamison is a wing with size that shoots well and rebounds well.
Sounds like you think Pitino is getting it...perhaps becoming a better coach?I do not blame Pitino, he took a long shot at a kid, did not work out. No big deal. Happens everywhere. Coach finally realizes that defense is first and when shooting is off, even more so. Internationals almost always come in behind the curve as they have played flat footed and tall for so long. Kid was brave to even come over here, covid and culture, academics.
Greenlee is actually shooting the lights out at FAU: https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/player/stats/_/id/4592701/bryan-greenleeI'm hoping Greenlee bounces back
