  • While it would be wonderful to be in a position to only play for playoff teams, the reality is that Fred is still trying to establish himself as a legitimate NBA player and maybe even a starter. Goal #1 is to get paid now because nothing is certain about the next contract he may get.

        • The Ringer did a mock NBA draft, and I got a kick out of Devonte Graham's comparisons: https://nbadraft.theringer.com?playe...te'_graham

          They say he compares to a lean Kyle Lowry or Fred VanVleet. I don't think it's a great comparison, but I love that Fred is established enough that he's being used as a comparison point in these types of guides.

            After he was drafted Bilas mentioned that Jalen Brunson is like FVV. That's last year's consensus college player of the year.

              Too bad Fred was never good enough (in Mark Turgeon's opinion) to make team USA.

              I still can’t beliiwce Melo Trimble made the Pan-Am games over Fred. Fred was a better PG/leader than him and Bobby Brown. That was the difference maker on that team.

          • Still would like to see Fred becomes Casey’s starting PG in Detroit.

            A worse team, without question, but the opportunity to be a starter has to outweigh that. Would be better both financially and developmentally.

              I would love to see him in Phoenix, they could use a starting point guard to go with their other 4 core young guys. He could help improve them tremendously in the near future. He would bring them some of the grit and toughness they have been missing, especially on the defensive end he could set the tone of the effort that is required.

              Haven't looked at their cap space, but I would think they have room to make him a max offer. Don't think Detroit can make a max offer without shedding significant salary.
