Tiktekno: clip summarizing today's events in sport, 11.2/sport1
In the United States, they are starting to see Danny Avdia as a cohesive and mature player, and understand that his lottery pick in the 2020 draft doesn't look bad at all in retrospect.
Avdia was selected ninth in that draft, which in retrospect was not very impressive, including players who were selected with high picks and became marginal at best.
In Abdia's first years in the NBA, there were those who compared him to Tyrese Halliburton, who was selected with the 12th pick by Sacramento and became an All-Star, but now that the Israeli forward is putting up nice numbers and showing versatile abilities on both sides of the court every game, the doubts have diminished.
"Danny is going to be a very dominant player in the league. He has become an offensive threat. You can go down on Tommy Shepherd, but when you start to see the finished product and look at other lottery picks in this draft, you realize that Danny was a good choice," they said on the "Locked On Wizards" podcast.
"Danny is starting to take shape offensively. He, Bilal Koulibaly and Corey Kispart must be a very important part of Wizards' future. We have a very good foundation."
earned the honor.
They also said: "The attack needs to go more through Danny. Should he play as a full-time center? We will have to see that. But his game vision is exceptional and he needs to touch the ball much more. He has developed very nicely. He has become an offensive threat today. We knew that he knows how to guard, but he becomes a very dangerous offensive player.
"We predicted that he would be selected in the top 5 in the draft, and he 'fell' a bit until he came to us and we jumped at the bargain.
Everyone is always talking about Danny being picked ahead of Tyrese Halliburton.
This is the comparison that will haunt him his whole career, but in the NBA there is a lot of matching.
I doubt very much if Halliburton would have looked as good in Washington as he did in Sacramento and Indiana."
