    Why compare him to Wes when you can compare him to Roy?

    Poor man's Devin Booker? He likes to shoot like Devin. Similar builds.

    How can we say that Trent is a better shooter; he has not played one game against NBA regulars.

    Don't see it personally. But I will tell you a player I could see being a poor mans Devin Booker. Anfernee Simons.

    I think Gary Trent Jr can be what people thought Buddy Hield should be (should have been by now).

    Agreed. Somewhere between a super Lou Williams and Booker. Seems to know good from bad shots, but has no fear to take them when they are good. With his hops and quick release . . . .

    Beal is a good comp for Trent imo.

    Trent makes CJ expendable imo. He’s not the ballhandler CJ is but he’s not just a set shooter either.

    In reality, the interview probably already happened. I doubt it's live.

    One of my personal highlight favorites of last season. Makes it easier to forget the post season. When I think of the end of last year, I think of Baldwin and I refuse to go any further.... then Im happy. :)

    I don't see it at all. He doesn't seem like a great defender. Kind of a chucker. So maybe you were thinking he's like Wes in that regard?
