Both of these players were getting limited time in pre-season and nothing has been written about them, so I don't know how these players have progressed.
Alabi from what I've seen, seems to be more comfortable on the floor then what he showed in Summer League, but because he's not getting any minutes I can't take it seriously.
Reading about Julian Wright, he came across as a decent defender who seemed lost with his role in New Orleans. How does he get his points? Does he have a post-up game? Mid-range game? My hypothesis is that his offensive game is similar to Amir Johnson, where he uses his athleticism to get to the rim. If that's the case then he'll be buried on the bench.
I was suprised that he shot a 3-point shot during the last Boston game, considering he only attempted 6 all of last year. Is this something that he has improved/focused on over the summer?
Has he done a good job defensively so far?
My hope is that Alabi, improves to the point that we can completely forget about POB. And that Julian Wright won't be a downgrade over Antoine.
Can anybody offer some analysis on these players?
