Right, but it's his only weakness. His offensive game is about as advanced as any 20-year old since LeBron, especially one-on-one play. Unlike LeBron or Jordan at that age, he gets beat a lot on defense.
Hell, he wasn't even the best defending point guard at Duke, but he has gotten better already.
Fit. He will be very good but he dominates the ball, seems to be reluctant to pass to Kyrie a lot of the time, and is not a great defender.
He's like a worse version of Kyrie, only as a 2 guard.
Obviously Kidd-Gilchrist was taken by the 4th spot, but if they can trade Waiters for an MKG-type (even a lesser version), that would be ideal for the Cavs. Then get another wing in this year's draft, wait for Varejao to heal, and keep developing Tristan Thompson. Not a bad team at all.
As a Duke fan, I would love that. But I wonder who the Cavs could send to Orlando that they wuold actually want. No way they trade Waiters without getting a guarantee from Redick that he would sign a 4 year deal for $30-35 million or whatever.
