Regarding Matt...Getting tougher down low will be his doing or undoing and his overall defense plus boarding. He can shoot.

He actually didn't have a ton of arc either, but had a ton of rotation and confidence which is vital. Elmore has a very good release and presentation. Elmore has it in him regarding shooting, so if he's confident or once he gets confident, can and will be north of 35% with no problem at all on a pick and pop or step out, once he's confident (that's the biggest thing for a big man good shooter). The likely reason is that in the back of their mind it's like some fans will be like...why is he out there shooting plus they tend to not get as many in game chances UNLESS they're absolutely convinced that is good to do so and everybody is on board. Same happened to CC until that GMU championship game in 2001 that it was like...well,nobody else can score and I can. After that, he was freaking money. The game has changed now though so that reasoning is going away for people that keep up with scoring metrics.

Now I'm not sure of his defense or boarding and finishing at the rim, but he has good coaches for that. That will dictate his minutes, not his shooting.
I don't remember who Brett Blizzard compared Elmore to in the Beat interview, but Brett thinks Elmore has more skills. I would think Brett would know. Of course it all means nothing if the confidence isn't there.
I think we should also keep in mind that he had a pretty significant injury last season. Don't think that will effect his shooting ability, but it could definitely impact other parts of his game that will determine how much playing time he will get. I'm optimistic about Elmore, but I'm also aware that he hasn't played consistent minutes of competitive basketball since high school.
Talked about similarities to Callahan I believe.

He stated he'd be back to full strength in a month. So as of now it looks like he should be good to go by first day of practice.
