Hinson is 6’6 with a big body. If he could defend centers and play a small ball 5 I think he could work in the league similar to how Naz Reid plays. But don’t think he has the athleticism to do it, and he’s red meat vs any perimeter guy.

But that dude does have a clean stroke and he can get his shot off quick.

With the headband, he reminds me of the old version of Melo a little.

I'd love to have had an old Melo coming off the bench for us last season.

Great first game. But his shot has been iffy at best the last two. Cole Swider was money the whole SL. Plenty of time to show out still, though. Still like his size and he’s still moving well, shot has been MIA though.

He looked like a 35 year old playing at the Y.

I was looking to see how he adjusted to the way the defense has been covering him. He's extremely limited off the dribble, really can't do much of anything when he's forced to put it on the floor. Actually had some nice defensive moments but you can kinda see why he was undrafted.

Apparently he's never met a shot he didn't like. He almost broke the backboard with one of his bricks.

I feel bad for Swider. Dude is a great shooter. And he worked his ass off on the floor whenever I saw him play, he just couldn’t keep up with NBA athletes.

Some of these guys goes undrafted for some reason... I think just catch and shoot shooters are a dying breed in the NBA... You need to be able to do multiple things now.

I like Hinson less the more I see him play. Hopefully he turns it around soon. But he hasn’t been hitting any of (bleep) shots and they’ve looked really bad when he’s gotten them. And he doesn’t do anything else on the court besides shoot from what I can see.
