Aminu emergence



Now that Chief is playing more consistent with more confidence, who does his game remind you of and what is his ceiling?

re: Aminu emergence


I've probably been the biggest Aminu hater on this board. I really like what I've seen from him lately. Hope this continues, but will definitely put Dell in a tough predicament this offseason.

re: Aminu emergence


Really tough to find a player to compare him to.

I think his ceiling is Shawn Marion without the range...?

not even close. Aminu's hands/coordination are a million times better than ju ju's. That's how terrible Julian Wright was .

Nah. He's definitely a better player, though. I hope we can sell high if he keeps up his production.

re: Aminu emergence


If we're planning on getting a SF in the offseason, why not trade Aminu when his value is highest? He's playing well right now but he's never done anything to show us that he can keep it up.

re: Aminu emergence


Because Aminu at his highest value still isn't worth that much. He's only making $2.9M and since we have no cap space right now with Lewis and Carrol's contracts on the books, we can't take on any added salary. Also since we declined his team option, he will be an unrestricted free agent next year and I doubt many teams are willing to part with anybody worth anything for a half-year rental for Aminu.

Aminu is much better with the ball in his hands than Julian Wright. Without a doubt. And pretty much anything else comparing the two goes in Aminu's favor.

re: Aminu emergence


We were asking the same thing at the beginning of the year. Unfortunately I'm just kind of expecting him to come back down to earth but will have another stretch like this by the end of the year.

I hope I'm wrong and he keeps this up

I think he'll keep it up based on these 2 quotes from yesterday.

quote:

Jim Eichenhofer ?@Jim_Eichenhofer

Al-Farouq Aminu (14pts/11reb): "I think I found my niche in this team, where I could help the team out. I'm just trying to fill that role."

Monty on Aminu: "He's the guy that has played inside his box and made himself look really good, but he has made our team look even better."


Translation, Monty has finally beat it into his head that he only does a few things well and if he doesn't bring those things every night he's worthless.
