Marcus Smart can guard 4, maybe 5 positions. In the NBA. I don't like the comparison overall. Could see some similarities on offense, though I think (hope) Harmon becomes a more efficient scorer than Smart. I do think Harmon will struggle shooting for a couple of years (or longer) though. Not his strong suit.

I think 4-5 is a stretch. He can guard 3, maybe 4 against some small ball lineups. But if we consider Doolittle a 5 then I'm dead wrong here. However I don't like the Smart comparison either, I actually feel Harmon is a more complete player than Smart was in college.

If you go by listed size, Jordan at 6’ O 190 and Harmon at 6’ 0 187 are very similar.

But, I always thought Jordan was closer to 5’ 10”. Harmon just looks bigger to me. Maybe that’s because he plays bigger. I never saw Jordan throw down a dunk with both hands. I think Jordan was a better shooter from three point range. That might change if De’Vion commits to several hundred shots from deep nearly every day the way Buddy used to do.

Might seem like a stretch in thought, but a) I've seen him do it in the NBA on a consistent basis, and b) it's something brought up nearly every Celtics' game by a variety of unbiased (ie, not Boston media) announcers.

I stand by my comment.

He averages almost as many turnovers as assists, in high school.

He will be better served as our "2 guard" next season and as long as he & Beinemy are here.

LK says he is a point guard. He's changed his mind in the past though.

No. Harmon is a legit PG. He should be the starting PG on opening day next season.

Like what I hear about Harmon. If he and Williams are as good as everyone says, where does JB fit into the lineup?

He’s in the rotation buy may or may or may not start. Harmon will be the starting PG. Austin Reaves is a great shooter, experienced, and was the best player in practices as he redshirted this year. I expect him to start. I don’t know who will emerge between Bienemy and Alondes Williams. Both will get plenty of playing time. Jalen Hill could get some wing minutes, too. JMHO

Great thing about players like him is it really doesn't matter because he can play either guard spot. He is a basketball player, pure and simple. Will play lead guard when Harmon isn't on the floor, can slide off the ball when Harmon is playing. It kills us this year to not have a second ball handler so that will be a nice upgrade next year.

If Bienemy doesn't start then OU will be very good as long as he doesn't catch a case of the McGusty's

I wouldn’t worry about Bieniemy. IMO, he’s the most grounded player on the team. No way he’s going to “catch a case of the McGusty’s.”

As for who will start at the point? I’m sticking with Harmon from the get go. He has been the designated starting point guard on next year’s team since he committed to OU last year. The only question in my mind is will Lon want Jamal to start with De’Vion or come off of the bench as his backup?

I don't think he will either. Never can have too many playmakers.
