I don't think a player hitting jumpers qualifies as having a lot of offensive potential. Question: Does Derrick have any defensive upside/skills? Has he shown improvement with his D? And also, can he create for himself offensively?
hes a pretty explosive athlete for a PF, and only a little undersized, and like i said he can shoot a bit. not many guys have his athletic ability and shooting.
im not saying hes def going to reach his potential, his feel for the game, and overall attitude arent very good, but he clearly has some great tools.
