Even if we are missing a starting SF, this offseason has been very good overall. Budcox gets my approval, but they better not throw away next years draft.

He moves like a snail caught in honey. I hope he's ready for about triple the speed he was playing right there.

He's 7'3". Considering his size, he moves pretty well.

I hear ya, but he's still not moving at NBA speeds. Not even close yet.

If he plays in more than 15 games all season, and more than 5 minutes in any of those games, I'll be beyond surprised. He very likely only sees garbage time minutes at most. I really hope people aren't expecting him to come in and guard guys like Gasol, Lopez, Cousins, Drummond, or Howard. He's got about a ZERO percent chance of seeing the floor when one of those types of guys is in there. He would get schooled so hard it would probably make the kid cry.

I just think people need to temper their expectations and not think so much with their Homer feelings about this kid. Tavares has a LONG way to go to prove he's not just another Priest Lauderdale.
