Trae Young Has Transformed His Body In Preparation For The NBA

"He could be really damn good, but I could also see him being a backup point guard", the scout told Jake Fischer and Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated. Both Curry and Young play bold and improvisational games that keep everyone on their toes. That isn't a risk that some general managers will be willing to take.

Outstanding Achievement: The 2017 McDonald's All-American averaged almost 43 points per game his senior year and dropped a state record 62 points that season. Young has earned the Cavs' interest regardless, but their close evaluation of Young may be tied to their desire to re-sign James.

Adidas missed out on a couple of marquee talents in the 2018 draft class, but Young and Walker are both potential lottery picks.

The star prospect from Oklahoma averaged 27.4 points per game on 42% FG, along with 8.9 assists this past season for the Sooners. "The biggest thing in this, and it's a great lesson — Lon Kruger, who I have unbelievable respect for, basically said 'We're going to play through you, it's all going through you, you're going to shoot when you want.' And he did not lie". His 3-point shooting, 36 percent on 290 attempts, is as coveted as his passing ability. Fans can also stream the draft on the Watch ESPN app. He had a solid floor game with 3.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game.

Bridges, who made a significant jump after averaging 10 points as a Villanova sophomore, also is considered National Basketball Association ready and a very solid two-way player. Late in the season, however, Young struggled a bit with his shooting. Will the Oklahoma one-and-done have the strength and stamina for the 82-game National Basketball Association grind? "He better go pro". There are also concerns about his ballhandling. I would then head back home and get some rest before my lift at 2 p.m. Lunch was, like, Chipotle and another shake.

"I would wake up and eat something very light before beginning my first workout-a banana or an orange", Young said.

After all, the Magic have restricted free agent forward Aaron Gordon; another forward/small-ball center in Jonathan Isaac coming off a short but promising rookie season; and immovable object Bismack Biyombo already on the roster.
