Does Xavier have a future at the 3 spot?



11 points in 14 minutes. He's a better scorer than Aminu, will never be the rebounder Aminu is but Xavier is showing improvements that Aminu is not. Henry would have open looks all night with EG, Vasquez, and Rhyno on the court. He's got the size and strength to do it. I believe his strength that he uses inside and on D is his best attribute IMO

I'll be happy if he can become a dependable guy who can hustle off the bench

He probably doesn't have much of a future here unless he continues to play like this. If he does he could be a solid bench player but that's probably it. But I doubt he will be able to keep up this level of play.

I have no idea why you are talking about his future at the 3 spot after one good game. Try not to overreact here. I would be happy if he turns into a decent scorer off the bench.

It's pretty clear that, given his sub-par jumper, he doesn't have a chance at the 2. I do think that there's still a chance that he could carve out a role as a backup 3 with his skill set; he's athletic, strong, and can get to the rim. If he works on improving his defense (he could be a good defender given his athleticism) and works on his free throws, he may not be totally lost.

Also, a cool stat that I just looked up - in last season and this season combined, he's 9-14 in corner 3s. Small sample size, sure, but why not try to get him more looks from that spot?

I just feel that Darius Miller has much more potential at the 3 than X.

Personally an Iggy/Miller rotation would be perfect imo.

This. I can see Henry sticking around for cheap as the 3rd option, but he's been too inconsistent to warrant more.

Exactly. And as a quality character guy, I'd like this. I could see him pulling off some good bench jumpers for the Pelicans.
