Clippers rookie Shai Gilgeous-Alexander spoke with Jovan Buha of the Athletic about being able to guard everyone from a point guard to a small forward.
Gilgeous-Alexander had a great Summer League but the Clippers rotation is a bit crowded with Patrick Beverly, Lou Williams and Milos Teodosic all competing for time at the point. Given Gilgeous-Alexander’s size (he’s 6’6 with a 6’11 wingspan), he feels confident in switching and guarding three positions at any given time “I feel like 1 through 3 I can definitely guard right now pretty well. But I still need to put on weight.” It will be interesting to see what lineups Doc Rivers deploys and how he mixes Gilgeous-Alexander in with the veteran guards.
