Thinking about Mamadi and Gill and Christian Wood...

I was super excited to read about Anthony's deal. There might not be a former player not in the league that I would have more liked to see get this opportunity. What an interesting path he's taken. When he left, I don't think I thought that he should have been an NBA players at the time, but Anthony Gill with a reliable three point shot? Absolutely. Let's give it a go.

This week people are obviously disappointed for Mamadi. I think he has some skills that are currently NBA level. Mostly on the defensive end, I think. I think there's a path for him eventually, whether it's from overseas or through the G League.

I've linked an article below about Christian Wood, who went from an undrafted free agent from UNLV to now making $17 million a year like two years later. So, there are pathways and the draft doesn't always get it right. I think if Mamadi continues to develop and tightens up a few things, he'll get a shot in a camp or on a short term stint to make some impact.
