Let's talk about Sun Ming Ming (7' 9") for a sec David if you read this topic I think I read something about him in the LA Times last season.
here's his clips
He's got a lot of work to do but I think his next step is to jump in the NBDL after he's in the ABA that's what people need to do if they have trouble developing in the NBA like Korolev he should've been in the NBDL for 2 years. His footwork needs to improve, lateral movement, shooting, a lil bit of everything has to improve. Give him some time and we'll see him being a good player. His feet has slowed him down I think his height and weight and fatigue especially has made him slow. He did have some surgery done to him to prevent premature death so he's stopped growing. It's very disappointing to let Livingston and Korolev to jump like that let em develop their skills for crying out loud. It's hard in the NBA to play into the potential if they're not NBA ready. We are a fair organization but if we want to take that next step we got to put em in the NBDL or let em develop in the overseas.
