    LK1 got a reaction from Handy Johnson in Think Yvan as slimmed   
    Hard working kid.  I loved his attitude all season.  He's been busting his ass to slim down and hop like that since March.  Wow.  I've had no doubt he can be an excellent upperclassman, but he might turn some heads next year with that leaping.  It would help him immensely in finishing around the rim to be a quick leaper with a better vertical.

    Bummer.  He would’ve been the 4th best point guard on our roster next year.

    Agree with the sentiment here.  I don't see how Andre would be a better finisher based on the film I've watched, although he may very well be a better free throw shooter.  Yvan plays really hard.  I think he'll make some strides physically and offensively in the offseason.  That still won't make him a shotblocker or speedster though, and I think Andre has those two things in bulk along with being taller.  I could envision scenarios where they play next to each other or neither of them is on the court at all in exchange for someone like Stevenson or Lat at the 5.  So many options.

    He has a 7’ wingspan.  That’s a 6+ inch advantage in vertical.  I think he’s very athletic, but an explosive leaper isn’t how I would personally describe his athleticism.  He’s reaching up to the rim, not looking down at.  Just my .02.

    LK1 reacted to Norm Peterson in Fast forward a year   
    I wouldn't be so quick to write Andre off as an outside-the-rotation player. One thing that struck me about last year's team was how we needed that shot-blocking rim runner. He's that guy. Not sure how ready he is because there's so much we still don't know. But his competition for the rotation is a still-very-young Yvan Ouedraogo who, while beefy, isn't all that long or explosive, a juco transfer who weighs 205 lbs dripping wet, and a Tennessee transfer who wasn't in the rotation at Tennessee.  I think there's at least an outside chance that a new guy like this, if he has some tools, has just as much of a chance to make the rotation as some of the other guys who also have holes in their game/abilities.

    Fred's staff doesn't recruit for the future.  It's a hard idea to get used to, but you just can't bank on developing guys much anymore.  He treats transfers like development/redshirt guys by default when applicable, but he's looking for dudes who can play right now, and the upgrade at each position isn't only on the table, but actively pursued in recruiting year round.  
     
    Considering next season's roster just got better at every single position (I think our PG play will be a lot better than Mack), we can only expect it to continue to improve year to year under Fred's tenure.  It's a smart model.

    He's like an in-shape Jordy, and that's a good thing.
     
    He looks limited offensively, but he already looks fantastic in terms of his ability to help on pick and roll, and he handles the ball pretty well.  
     
    He can really, really run at 220lbs.  I'm guessing he can remain comfortable at 235-240lbs.  
     
    I'm not sure if he can help us next year, and I don't see him playing the 4, but his speed and skill in transition is an element we don't currently have at the 5.

    Fred’s got someone of high quality locked up and it’s been that way for awhile.  That much we can be certain of.  He’s not one to spout out dumb things about a maybe on the recruiting front.

    Good get.  Strong bodied stretch 4 with a high catch/release.  No mechanics to his shot at all really.  Kavas had a giant windup in comparison which devalued his height.  
     
    Between Lakes and Tominaga, we have some serious gunners coming in for ‘21-22.

    When transfers are redshirting in the system, that’s how.  
     
    Banton, Walker, Stevenson, Yvan, Thor, Cross, Arop all know the system.  Throw in some juco specialists and a blue chip freshman once in awhile and it’s really a better system than traditional recruiting.  It seems to me Fred’s philosophy is players aren’t getting recruited unless they can play right away.  Next season should be pretty good evidence of this.

    Ty is a more of an offensive coach, and Lebron is probably as good of an offensive coach as anyone in the league.  LA made a brilliant move hiring Frank Vogel.  He can coach the hell out of defense, and their team defense (including Lebron) went through the roof this season.  He's the perfect coach for Lebron because he'll let him do his thing on offense and push him on defense.  Vogel is a really good coach.  I think Ty would fit well in BK figuring out how to play Kyrie and KD together.

    I would've liked Cross to stay as well, but I'm guessing he doesn't want to come off the bench.  No way he starts over Stevenson, Allen, or Banton.  I doubt the coaches told him they didn't want him.  I'm guessing they told him he would be a role player, and that was probably the reality of the situation for him here.  We have a legitimate squad next year, with more player additions likely in the fold soon.  It's going to be fight or flight for most players under Hoiberg, and more power to him for setting up a system that puts the program first as opposed to risking the entire structure on the loyalty feelings of an 18-22yo.

    Those are just the high majors as there’s a slew of mid/low majors as well after him. 
     
    if he was a grad transfer I bet his offer list would be even larger. Some schools don’t want to use a roster spot for two years to only get one year of play. 
     
    I actually think it’s a smart play as you can’t play everyone so Fred getting guys that have to sit is smart so they don’t have to worry about playing time right away and can learn the system. 
     
     In regards to Xavier offering it tells me quite a bit they reached out day one to offer him. They played Indianapolis in an exhibition game last year. No bigger sign of his abilities to me with a school that saw him up close and personal.
