We need to remember that Foye is in his 7th year so this is what we are going to get from him.
Well first off he is not good at guarding the P&R roll man. The good news about this though is he is not going to be the one guarding the role man haha. Clippers did some funky things. Either Blake Griffin is an idiot or they are doing ridiculous defensive switches. Blake would switch on the P&R and allow Foye to guard the big man. So obviously we are not going to be doing that hopefully.
He is not great guarding the P&R. He is pretty slow. Most of the PG I watched him play against went right around him.
When he is in the other team shoots a great percentage from the 3 point line. People he was guarding shot 42% from three last year.
He is not great offensively. To be honest he is not even that good. He is horrible Iso, P&R, off screens and off cuts. The ONLY thing offensively that he is good at is spot ups. So for those hoping that he is going to get so many more minutes then Burks and he is going to make our team better you are going to be severely disappointed when he gets in the game. If we are going to stick him in it should be when Al is in the game and he should just sit in spots and shoot threes. But if that is all he does why does he deserve minutes over Burks who does a lot more?
I watched the game where he started vs the Jazz. We blew them out in this game. This would be the exact situation that we are going to put him in minus he will be playing against the 2nd teams. But he played the PG for the 2nd team in this game. So he played against Earl when he ran the PG. Here are my thoughts.
First play of the game he tries to take Millsap off the dribble and can not. Makes a horrible pass which is intercepted by Jefferson. The only good thing is he runs down Millsap and tries to make a play of the fast break but can not. Runs a P&R gets the space he needs but his jump shot is not very pretty. It is sideways. Runs the P&R again and turns the ball over. He is not good on the P&R at all and makes horrible decisions with the ball. His 3 point shot looks different then his regular shot and I think that is why he makes a better clip from 3. Earl could easily guard him. He is not quick off the dribble. He gets out hustled by Earl on an offensive rebound.
