Athletic combo forward, but cant shoot, and doesnt play defense or give enough effort with the consistency he should. Heat signed a couple of guys that would be interesting if Fizdale was still there to help on the development on that side of the ball, but they’ll likely be an adventure. Not a fan of the combination of Derrick Williams and James Johnson on the same team
