I don't think Simmons or Ingram is some kind of franchise savior. Simmons is a great fit as a 4 in the modern NBA though because he can guard inside and on the perimeter, rebound, handle the ball like a guard, and score inside. Even if he never develops a reliable jumper, he is still going to be a very valuable player. I see him as a better version of Draymond Green who can create offense on his own much better than Green.
Primarily a screener/offensive rebounder on offensive end
Sometimes falls asleep getting back in defensive transition
Summary: Gordon projects to be a rebounding role player at the next level. He has some limitations on the offensive end which hurts his stock and is why he is a second-round prospect.
Player Comparison: Nick Collison. Collison has carved out a career as a valuable role player off the bench who relies on his rebounding, physicality and toughness to be productive in the NBA. Gordon will have to follow suit and build his niche as an energy role player who can provide some decent minutes off the bench by crashing the glass and playing solid defense.
