Kam would make a very nice 7th to 8th man... on a good team. He is never going to be a starter. But he can be a very good asset.
I would prefer my first guard off the bench to be able to play both guard positions... I have not seen that from Kam yet. But we also have a pt forward coming in, who could supplement that depending on the rotation.
I would agree with those somewhat doubting Kam. He is slight of build and seemed to struggle a lot in big ten play. Diebler only struggled with his shot, everything else he did was pretty good. I even thought Diebs played good team defense and had great court awareness... He had a lot of intagbiles besides just his shot. Kam is never going to be that player, but he could bring lightning scoring(and We definitely need that).
A team where Kam, Tate, and Thompson or Giddons(as a frosh) come of the bench and provide quality mintues at starter level production could be great... Unfornately that is such an unknown.. because I think we may be starting these guys and each has some gaps in their game that they could fill in, but it is a very big ask to do in one year. I don't like to see guys forced into a starting role before they are really ready, just because we don't have anyone else better, not really fair to them.
