Did we sign a legit PG?

http://www.usab.com/news-events/news/2016/03/world-team-roster-announced.aspx

Anyone know anything about this team/tournament?

"Feliz was the leading scorer at the 2015 FIBA U19 World Championship in Greece, averaging 18.9 points per game."

Looking forward to watching this team with a true PG next year, especially if he's this talented

Yup, the recrutniks think he's definitely legit. Don't forget we'll also have Penn State transfer, Geno Thorpe on hand to also help run the PG position. We need some stability there, as I think both McMurray and Peters are more natural two guards.

The kid is going to be scary good I think. I've seen some tape and he likes to cut to the rim. If McBuckets and Holston can be there for the kick outs or Baxter/any 4-5 be there for the close feed it will be a fun team to watch. 

I'm wondering though, if this kid can get us running the court with an athletic group on the court, will Perry or our 5 be effective? I say that because Perry was most effective at the hash and Tulio is pure speculation at this point. It will be interesting to say the least.

That'd be a fantastic problem to have. Considering Perry ran the floor well this season (when not injured), it shouldn't be an issue. Manderson is also pretty athletic, for a big man, from what I've heard. The keys to next season are stability at the point, much more consistent shooting from beyond 3pt land, and minimal injuries.

Antigua promised fast and up tempo when he got here, I'm anxious to see it.

So now my question to the fair minded. If COA brings in more talent with this next draft class, let's say he pulls LJ Figueroa and/or an Isaiah Washington, or some other combo of 4 stars, does that change the narrative for him? Does that give him more wiggle room for a mediocre season if he can bring in top talent in hopes of moving the right direction with that talent?

If he can bring in that kind of talent then definately, but I think he will need to win this season to get some of those top guys here.

Only if the system he is running with that talent makes feasible progress from the first to the last game. There's no reason to losing to lower division teams and no reason to not be competitive in half of our games. If more injuries or qualifying issues happen again then all bets are off.

We should be beating the Tulane, ECU, and UCF consistently next year. I also forgot that we have another off season to bulk up Guerrero, so a front court with Guerrero, Perry, Manderson, da Silva, and Santos should be pretty formidable.

I don't see much wiggle room. It's either start winning some games or look for a new job at this point. He has been given two years of looking good on paper for the future. 

I would think a .500 record is a realistic and acceptable goal. Then build from there. 

My thinking is the time for rebuilding is done now the actual growth must start. If that makes any sense.
