Though, I admit that saying he is NBA-ready is an exaggeration.
I don't know ... I'd prefer an athletic wing who can defend and a finisher at the rim, over a shooter/passer (which we already have in Hayward). Our defense is so porous right now we could really use a lengthy defender.
So given the choice I'd go for Adetobunko over Karasev.
The reason I don't want Adetokunbo is he will take 2 years in Europe and at least a year on NBA to be productive. With Karasev though he comes to NBA and spends a year to get used.
Here's Karasev shooting 3s. I wouldn't mind him spacing the floor. He's mostly a catch-and-shoot player, so he'd basically play the role that Randy Foye and Kyle Korver did.
The Jazz play like azz when the J ain't workin'.
But I like Karasev, too. But the evidence that you need (super) stars to win a title and can continuously put yourself in that position is overwhelming.
