Pops looked pretty good in the recently-streamed practice. For somebody who has only been playing organized ball for four years and is coming off a foot injury, he moved pretty well. He also seems to have good form on his shots. He should be a more than adequate replacement for Makanjuola this year and should be able to provide a solid post presence next year.
