Pippen JR had his chances - just isn't physically gifted enough. If he was his Dad's height, he'd be a unicorn, but at 6'0" he's just another guy with not enough size to play in the NBA.


He could be signed by South Bay or some other G-League team. International ball is also an option. The kid has heart, I wish him well.

I really wish people stop acting like the size of the player is Important, it’s not, look at all the small guards who ended up making a name for themselves, IT/Trae/Boykins/ and a lot more. I didn’t list, Pippen Jr lacks offense and he doesn’t have the IQ to out smart other players, he will do a better job in China

Size is an obstacle but not one that can't be overcome. If you are elite in at least one thing and make yourself a pest on defense, you can be a net plus player. SPj can run an offense, but doesn't do anything at an elite level. He goes all-out on D, but he's too short for that to be his reason to be on the floor.

They believed in Gabe Vincent. Who cannot get on the court.
