    (2024) PF - Derik Queen to Maryland

    YES. That’s the comp. And great callback to Krutwig. I had to watch him to understand the hype. A favorite NCAA basketball player over the past several years. How a big scores isn’t really the differentiator. Edey reaches over you. Reneau sticks his butt into you to create space for a lay-in. Trayce would just spin move around you so explosively that you’d be looking at the sideline while he’s dunking behind you. Regardless of the how, they are all bigs that can receive the entry pass then put the ball in the bucket. The comp here is floor vision and facilitation. Basically passing. And then as Demo noted below-the-rim craftiness to score as well. In my eye the two passing bigs we’ve had over the past couple coaches are TJD and Juwan. Both not only looked to pass, but actually created a shot for the passee. Queen, to me, is that kind of big. Play through the middle. And I do feel like Woody is versatile in a way to really exploit that ability.

    Totally agree that information is a little stale after the past few games. …still think it’s crazy to say we’re not better with X out there.

    Tony Adragna posted this a week ago. We’re better with X. I’m ready for the question to die. This injury stinks because it feels like it does take him some games to wind up and start controlling the floor.
