3) He is one of the players in this draft who has the most to benefit from NBA spacing and better teammates. Similar to Kyle Kuzma (who shot 32% from three his junior year at Utah) Roby simply hasn't been in a system that plays to his strengths. Nebraska didn't have shooters around him, and the lack of spacing hurt his ability to go off the bounce.

4) He has better handles than Powell & Kleber, and is a better individual defender than both. He is more versatile switching screens than both. He is arguably as good of a rebounder, if not better than both. He has an NBA-ready frame, high intangibles, and doesn't play scared the way Powell sometimes does.

All in all, I legitimately expect him to get minutes.
Better handles than Powell and Maxi doesnt impress me much seeing how he is 2 and 4 inches shorter and plays more sf than both. I would hope his handles are better than Salahs as well. Not sure he will rain 3s like Salah though. 🏀☔
