What does NBA draft analyst Ed Isaacson of NBADraftblog.net expect to see different from Alex Poythress this season and what will NBA scouts be looking to see the most from him?
Isaacson: “If Poythress wants to get extended time on the court this year, there are two things he needs to do — play with confidence and make smart choices. These were the two things that concerned scouts the most last year as the year progressed last season.
“Skill-wise he is a bit behind, similar to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist his freshman year, but Kidd-Gilchrist overcame that with smart play and hustle. Poythress looked lost through most of the second half of last year, and even if he was more skilled, it would still be alarming.”
