Specifically with that, to clarify the Iguodala stuff, there’s been some talk about the agreement you guys had come to. Can you speak to your side of it? Zach Kleiman: All I’ll say there is the entire time we were in communication with Andre’s camp. Those communications were fine. We were on the same page throughout. At the end of the day, we’re very happy Andre’s in a situation where he has an opportunity to compete this year. We’re happy for him. It’s a loss, losing Solomon Hill and Jae Crowder in connection with the deal. Both of them were fantastic in our locker room, and I think they made a significant impact on the court as well. It stings to lose them, and that’s not necessarily something we wanted to do, per se. But we’re happy they’re also in a situation where they’re joining a team that has a chance to compete this year along with Andre. At the end of the day, all parties came out ok.
“Never been a big fan [of Jae Crowder],” the scout said. “He’s a very streaky shooter at best, more of a four [power forward] than a three [small forward]. He’s a little bit more of a playmaker this year than prior years [his 2.8 assist average would be a career high]. Maybe your fifth starter on a good team. He’s smart, will swing the ball. He’s a glue guy. He does have some toughness and can guard, but I don’t think he can guard threes very well. I don’t think he does anything [exceptionally] well. Not a great shooter. Perceived as a defender but not a stopper. He knows what he’s doing and he backed off on looking for his own shot this year to an extent, which was good.”
