Bye Bye Kenyon
It's all but confirmed that his replacement will be 5'9 (not 5'11) guard Jerome Randle. Scouting reports talk about his speed, handle, solid shooting from the line and range. He shot the three great in college but appears to have struggled more as a pro where the height thing obviously becomes an issue. After watching this mixtape though, I'm sold.
If he can shoot the ball at 40% from deep, create for team mates, get to the line and push the tempo , the Sixers will look very different. He must come in confident and ready to play from day dot. The concern is how he'll defend and handle the, um, physicality of the NBL.
I'll go out on a limb and say he'll be a good one. Will it be enough though to make the Sixers legit title challengers? I still think Adelaide will need more from one or two players to truly challenge the competition elite.
Watch this though and you'll be a little more confident.
