he's better than brussino.

Brussino has not been very good in SL :(

sometimes he is very good... just not that consistent. So far I think Ding is more consistent in shorter period per game.

Brussino's already signed though. It's more a question of whether he's better than Ashley.
And then, even if you rate him higher than Ashley, do you really think he'll sign a two way deal? I get the sense he wants that guaranteed NBA roster slot or he's going back to China.

He can shoot a bit and handle the ball. Not the best defender but gets by on hustle and smarts. Amazing court vision, will really wow you with his passing and the way he sees the floor. He's also played better than Brussino this summer and is more marketable, so those are added factors.
Now on to the negative: he's extremely awkward. He gets rattled when pressured and is terrible finishing around the rim. And these are just Summer League athletes.

he is naturally a SG/SF... it's the first time for him to play the PF as a pro. #undersized a lil bit.

As a slasher yes, he can still shoot well and he defends well, plus his passing is great. He could get a bench spot for sure.

Exactly my impression. Way too slow on defense. Also a lot of turnovers on offense when he tries get by defenders -- and it's just the summer league.

I wouldn't say he's trash but yeah, he's not able to protect the ball against NBA level defenders.

Exactly. He's a novelty in the SL. Nothing more than that.

He just needs more minutes... usually players perform better when given more minutes according to J.E., the founder of Real Plus-Minus.

To put it simply, he isn't good enough.

Every time he has the ball he tries to make a basket. Whether he is shooting a contestant jumper or dribbling into multiple people and turning it over, he is just too selfish.
He is probably trying to prove something because he is the chinese MVP, or he feels he has to make a play with the crowd cheering him.
Who knows how good he would be if he would pass a bit more, but in the last two games he even struggeled making open jump shots

Wait what? He's had some pretty amazing passes man.
[–]k2abal 0 指標 1 天前
He has 2 assists in 4 games. He is averaging half an assist
[–]gigantism 8 指標 1 天前
DSJ only had 2 assists in like 30 mins last game, is he a bad passer because of that?
[–]sirfreakish 3 指標 1 天前
Again, he did not have very many minutes and he isn't asked to handle the ball or be the primary offensive playmaker. Do not compare him to Dennis.

He made some really good passes in Orlando. I've seen less of it in Vegas.
