(2019) SG Lester Quinones to Memphis

Recommended Posts

Lot more to the game than shooting. Learning the system and being physically ready for defense at this level. 

That's why I wouldn't expect him to be a starter right away. I love Al, but LQ appears to be a much more natural offensive player with a higher ceiling. It also wouldn't shock me if Al takes another leap and he's shown good improvement both seasons so far

True, but are we really expecting him to come in and grab a starting spot either?

Nope; I think most would gauge him behind Phin, DeVonte, Al D, and tied with Franklin for minutes during his first year.

 

I wouldn’t expect a starting spot for him. But his ability to knock down shots could get him huge minutes here. At Memphis, I am not sure either way he is getting over 15 mpg. I don’t think he gets the shots there to make an impact he is being sold on.

 

Edit: I do think Penny can last longer than Drew but I am not certain he can coach as good as Wade. Will be interesting to see if he can carry this momentum in 2 or 3 years.

Does he have to give the money back? :)

Nah - Memphis is a Nike school too - just need to reallocate from a few internal cost centers. Penny came to P(l)ay!!

It looks like Quinones to IU. I hope that’s the case. First, let’s get Watford this weekend

Let’s wait and see. No need to over hype the masses. It’s a marathon not a sprint.

All of the talk about Memphis was before the Boogie Ellis news today folks. If they can get Ellis and Hampton Penny will take them over LQ in a heartbeat as would most coaches.

It also may make Lester want to commit to Memphis after hearing the Boogie news . He may feel if he waits he may lose his spot.

He might not be feeling the “love.” Archie keeps visiting him and Penny is running chasing bigger fish.

Is  Watford announcing this weekend? I took the Instagram post as just to film the announcement video and it would be released at a different time. I could’ve missed something.

His first few years in the league before injuries seemed to exceed expectations. The Magic were god awful before him and Shaq. Both had an equally critical role in that franchise making the championship. Plus being a high lottery pick from Memphis State in the early 90s I would consider that exceeding as well. As a coach we don’t know, but these kids know who he is and he was a top AAU coach these kids all saw and knew. Plus the money probably isn’t bad either.

I'm glad you put the two key words in that comment... "and Shaq". His role was not "equal" to Shaq's.

This is just ignorant. Penny was one of the biggest stars of his era just like Grant Hill and injuries shortened his career just like Grant Hill. Before that, he had a great NBA career which included a trip to the Finals. It just sounds stupid to say he never exceeded expectations like he was expected to be drafted 3rd overall out of high school. He wasn't. 

And Archie hasn't won a championship at the collegiate or NBA level either btw.

Never mind all that anyway because it could just as easily be Penny's personality that draws kids or something else. Who cares? I hope Lester chooses us, if he goes to Memphis or elsewhere I hope he does well but I don't care why and none of us will ever really know why anyway 

Best of luck to Lester wherever be goes. Wish him all the best. 

Trip to the finals=Shaq.
