Hoping to see something that looks like basketball

Agreed. I see Gaffney as very much like Jalen Adams coming out of HS, with a better outside shot, and a little less to the rim acrobatic capability. He will develop into a PG just fine. If people don't think he can be a PG, then we probably shouldn't have brought him here at all.I certainly wouldn’t lump Gaffney in with Vital when it comes to handling the ball. Gaffney is much better in that regard. He’s more like Jalen Adams with his handle.
Vital is in the TSam stratosphere of dribbling. Every time he puts the ball on the floor with a man on him, I get a bit nervous.
Vital was a catch and shoot SG. But a catch and shoot SG at 6'1" is barely viable at the level we want to be and isn't viable at all professionally. If CV wants to play pro ball (overseas probably) he has to work tirelessly on his ball handling and passing. I have no doubt whatsoever that Hurley has told him this, and that Hurley expects to give him some opportunity. He did it a bit more late last year, not always well. But those are skills that can be learned.
