One thing that he doesn't get a ton of credit for is his lack of fouling. He knows how to keep his arms straight up and moves his feet very well. He forced countless tough shots and did it with out fouling. Plus he was very aggressive. Need that to survive the NBA.
I agree, I'm just saying that he's slightly undersized if he's going to see 10-15 minutes a game this year. I'd rather let him play his game aggressively on defense and not worry about it was my point.
I hadn't read the ATH piece before saying that they were noticeably worse without him just from the eyeball test.
From the article:

Withey finished 8th in the NCAA in adjusted statistical plus/minus in 2013, just a shade behind the #4 overall pick, Zeller.
