Yes, absolutely. 6'9" with arms that look long even for his frame. Seems to have a very good vertical. Leading the league in scoring and shot blocking. Near the top rebounds. Can score off the dribble, and shoot threes at that size while also being a solid FT shooter. His assists are even up this year. The knocks on his game are turnovers and a career FG% that's lower than you'd like for a big. The FG% is up this year though, and nearly half of his career shots come from three, thus the lower FG%.

Honestly, if it wasn't for the knees, I think we'd be talking about NBA potential. He does a lot of the things Richaun Holmes did well at BG but he's got a more diverse offensive game. Holmes is in his 6th NBA season with around 15 mil in the bank. I'm sure there's a chance Pippen could play his way through the G League, but with the knees basically being a ticking time bomb, it would be a massive shock to see someone willing to invest a draft pick in him.

If he can finish the year strong, perhaps the best $$$ move would be to sign with a quality Euro team where the pay is solid and tax free. Even with his knees he should be solid over there for 5-years or so. He's smart so should be able to bank a lot of his money while there.

Old school folks might remember Ball State's Paris McCurdy who was also from Detroit.. He also had some knee issues but still played many years in Europe and parlayed his $$$ into Detroit real estate. Set for life.

Enjoyed reading a great article. Then there was Kent State, Elite Eight.
