I certainly hope he stays around. I optimistic that he can get better at NBA basketball because he still has the same tantalizing combination of strength, length, and agility that he had when he was drafted.

Yabu's development will be wrinkle worth watching next season.

Semi is 6'7 and plays like he's 6'3. Cheap roster fodder, much like Yabusele.

Needs to lose 5-7 pounds and his 3 pt shot has to get much better

He was missing open looks during garbage time. He cant afford to do this

The Draymond Green comparison is lazy at best. Not every sub-6'9" power forward with guard skills is another Draymond; Draymond is an outlier and a unique one at that, who handles and passes like a PG, rebounds and protects the rim like a center, and plays all-NBA defense while posing as a threat from behind the arc (although, this year he only shot 30% from 3). He's like a combination of Boris Diaw and Dennis Rodman in the strangest, yet highly effective, way.

From his time with the Celtics, all I've seen from Yabusele is the ability to hit 3's and rebound well enough. The footage of him pre-Celtics is full of drives highlighted by quick crossovers and monstrous finishes in traffic. I don't see Yabusele's pre-NBA game translating to the NBA because his physical attributes are less incredible at this level of basketball. He has the weight and strength for sure, but his quickness and agility at this level are nothing to write home about, and that will prevent him from being the beast he was prior to the league. I thought he was a reach at the time and still feel that way now.

More like the French Anthony Bennett :-\.

That's a little bit premature.

Plus, it's not like we missed a gem after him. LeVert or Siakam would be nice pieces, but I'm not losing any sleep over missing those guys

Why have you given up on a rookie after ~30 games?

IMHO, I have not seen a lot of "roster fodder" that can control a top 10 player in the NBA like Giannis for an entire series.  Give me Semi ALL DAY LONG!!!  Close to elite defense and a large dose of toughness.

This.  Yabu showed a few flashes and also made some bad rookie boo-boos, but has hardly been given a fair shot.

1 out of 30 doesn't sound right to me.  I think it's much higher odds of success since so few are taken and those who are taken are the cream of the crop.  Without even trying: Dirk, Tony Parker, Duncan, Ginobilli, Dennis Shroeder, Valencunas, Ilgauskas, Vucevic, Vlade Divac, Andre Kirilenko, Mutombo, Yao, Detlef Schrempf...

Few is pretty generous in this case.   Not optimistic about his progress thus far.

I saw very few “flashes”. I cant name one thing he is good at. He would probably benefit from a trade, because he will not get the opportinity to develop with the strong C’s squad. Depending on the free agency, he might find himself some time to prove himself unzil the allstar break.
