The Brooklyn Nets Are ‘Sold’ On Rodions Kurucs And It Isn’t Hard To See Why

His slashing and athleticism would be perfect coming off a dribble handoff or a Brook Lopez screen. He could also be a great secondary ball-handler and an upgrade in an offense that saw the likes of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson initiating things in the half-court at times. His three-point shooting would be a hand-in-glove fit with Kenny Atkinson’s motion offense that is starved for true shooters.

If he never develops these skills and remains as the same type of player he is right now, he can fall back on his shooting and length. Luckily for him, 6-foot-9 shooters are hard to come by. He would probably look like a less polished, more athletic, less reliable version of Mike Dunleavy Jr if he never realized his NBA potential.
