Next year will be different.
Remember this post.
Nothing personal, my man. He's not playing over Marcus and Khyri. He's not gonna play over the Ronnie Harrell we saw at the end of the year. I'd be willing to bet one of either (if it both) of Mitch and TyShon will get decent minutes.
Not disagreeing with you, but it's funny to go over to the recruiting page and see all the "NICE!" and "kids gonna be awesome!" posts about, not only Kobe, but any/all newly signed recruits. Each one is seemingly always "next best thing" and then one year later? ...POOF! ...old news.
Still thinks he gets 2016-2017 Harrell-type minutes though. Those of the pre-BET Harrell minutes...where he'll play 4-6 minutes on average...occasional DNP and the game(s) he potentially "goes off", he'll get more.
At 6'6" (maybe even taller by next year), his height and shooting range will likely get him some time at SF/PF given we are thin in prototypical front court bodies (besides Hegner and Martin)
