    My reply is more to do with his getting very close to losing the fan base rather than his signing players. Project signings do not help in showing growth. Once the fans go away I don't see a path where he remains as head coach. Not necessarily after this season but yeah, dead man walking.

    Tuon may be good enough to get minutes. We don't know yet, and the 42% free throws is scary. But he does seem like he can really run the floor.

    Runs the floor, should be able to defend capably, does not shoot the ball very well, especially on the free points stripe.


    Where have I heard this before?

    Um, is that a proper noun or a stomach reflex?

    IIRC he shot better than AD from the line and in the 60-something percent range.

    And both guys were awesome running the floor.

    There is only one AD for Gator fans.

    And he really could run the floor both ways.

    Um, Scott Stricklin could run the floor both ways? I did not know this.

    Could he play as a preferred walk-on?

    If he wanted, he could be a starter. 'Cause he's the boss.

    Skinny doesnt mean a kid can't play well. I watched Lenny Horton play in the 1979-1980 season, GTs first year in the ACC. Nobody on UNC could stop his ball handling and GT nearly choked UNC with their four corners. He was pretty dang good and I'd be surprised if he weighed 200 lbs at 6'7".

    Maybe Tuon will do OK if he can get he FT% up.

    Corey Brewer was 6'-9" and 122 pounds. Ballooned up to 131 in the NBA.

    Prince from KY was rather lean as well and pretty much had his way withe the Laker boys when he was with Detroit. Some guys are lean and just know how to play hoops. Others are bigger. I'd rather see him spend time lifting his FT% by 20 than his press 50 lbs. He's going to get stronger and probably wont have a beach body.
