Powell's contract is tough to trade. My bet is on Noel being moved and Motley coming up.

Motley's hand and foot work are really advanced for a guy his age. Very impressive stuff.

It's easy to be fooled by the stats of g league. They play slighlty above all star game level defense, but its easy to see that Motley should be getting minutes here if Powell is.

It’s not the footwork that impresses me. It’s his tough rebounding.

@IAmDPick: Puerto Rico, I'm told, invite recent Mavericks guard Gian Clavell for its World Cup Qualifyers clash vs USA in Orlando this Thursday.

I honestly don't know how hard it would be to beat Noel and Powell out for minutes. Motley looks more talented than both combined. Just gotta see if he can do it with the big bouys.

I hope Motley is as good as we think he is or could be. I just know I've been caught up in those G/D league numbers before. Dwight Powell averaged 26ppg and 9.8rebs in 12 games. Motley is at 21.7ppg and 9.6rebs in 9 games. Can't say that I have watched either play g/d league games so I have no idea how the eye test for their g/d league games look/looked(Powell).

So the downside is the same production but with a much cheaper player 4 years younger. Not to mention the potential to be better. I like it as an UDFA. And I know you do, too, but we do have to take the G league with a grain of salt.

His g leaue highlights are all on youtube. The key is examining what he does well that will translate to the NBA. He is almost dead on perfect for today's center in terms of size, althetic ability, and mobility, and I think he will be a really solid backup once he gets a chance. He handles the ball well and really knows the paint. I think bigger guys might give him fits, but he seems crafty enough to get around that. Big time energy guy.

What's interesting about him being an "energy guy" is that I remember the first few times I saw games or clips of him I was thinking "wow, this guy sort of slacks off and zones out a lot...doesn't really look all that interested." But what I came to realize is that he's actually just very efficient with his actions. He's not flying all over the court at ever second for no reason, but he will sort of lull you to sleep and then kick it into gear when he needs to.

He's probably not gonna ever be a stretch big. He's not as quick as Powell either. He has a better post game on both ends tho. I have watched a handful of games thanks to my dvr and hes fun to watch. I think the numbers he puts up are inflated like everyone else's because the g league doesn't have teams that can represent the defense or chemistry the nba teams do.

The way Powell has stepped up lately makes it much easier to deal with him staying there until NN pans out at least and maybe he keeps gaining confidence and polishes his game. Its just hard for him to tighten up weaknesses because the opposition will never provide the types of tests the nba will.

Well from the single g league game I actually sat through, he seems so sustain exactly what you are referring to. Yeah, he is no Kenneth Faried in terms of flying around, but he seems to have a decent BBIQ to fool people.

Watched last night.

28-6-1

Such a different game. He rebounded hard but our team just can’t defend so they got so many layups. Not many rebounds to be had from their misses so 2/3 of his rebounds were offensive. He was also forced to play center the whole night and he’s really not one.

Didn’t show much range either. On the Mavs, Rick won’t play you at PF unless you have range. Game is very similar to Powell in that way. Same high mobility. Motley just has more post ability.

I know it was mentioned in another thread, but I thought I'd put it here too (R.I.P. Texas Legends thread...)


@fishsports: BREAKING: sources tell http://DallasBasketball.com that 2-Way @TexasLegends standout @Moneymot5 Motley is being called up by @dallasmavs - going to #Mavs tomorrow. https://scout.com/nba/mavericks/Arti...ming-111880244

@ESefko: By the way, Johnathan Motley, who is expected to join Mavericks Thursday, passes the eye test in the G-League. He had 24 and 12 Wednesday.

@IsaacHarrisNBA: Reminder that Johnathan Motley was ranked 39th on the DraftExpress big board before draft. Some had him a 1st rounder.
