2697865, Ceiling: a Coke Zero DeMar DeRozan.

He's big, he's quick, and he isn't shy. He's a decent defender, and his physical profile is obviously ideal for the 2 guard in today's NBA. But he's very turnover prone, and he's not a good shooter right today. It passes the eye test... but this isn't even a Reddish thing where his numbers were, like 33% and 77%. Langford is doing 27% from 3 and 72% from FT. Very blah numbers.

I think his ceiling is something like 17/4/3 on 41%/32%/75% with 3.5+ TOs per game. Think, like, a 23-year-old DeRozan with more turnovers. He'll get to play for 6+ years on potential alone, but I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up Shabazz Muhammad-esque, where maybe he has a season or two where his 3P% spikes and he's of real value, and otherwise he's just a bench wing guy who you look at and go, "Oh, he was great in high school."
