Warriors exec on Brandin Podziemski: He’s got some Jalen Brunson in him

Assistant general manager Larry Harris joined me and Monte Poole on the latest Dubs Talk podcast and gave two names he believes Podziemski resembles, while trying to ease unfair expectations. “I don’t want the fans to lose their minds a little bit when I say this,” Harris began, “but … he rebounds, he’s smart and he can score. He’s got a little bit of some Jalen Brunson in him, in the sense that he knows how to kind of worm his way into the lane and he’s strong enough to take contact.”

More on this storyline

“I think everybody enjoyed Donte DiVincenzo,” Harris said. “I think a lot of things that he did well … again, I mentioned Jalen Brunson, I think a lot of similarities, the way he plays in his activity is a lot like Donte DiVincenzo. “Not the athlete that Donte is. Better shooter than Donte is. But that fearlessness, it seemed like he dropped out of the ceiling sometimes to go grab a rebound.” -via NBC Sports Bay Area / June 23, 2023
Of the eight players who have committed to play this summer, such as rising stars Jaren Jackson Jr., Anthony Edwards, Jalen Brunson and Tyrese Halliburton — none have played in a World Cup or Olympics. In recent days, Team USA officials have reached out to former All-Star and past NBA champ Fred VanVleet to gauge his interest, a league source said. VanVleet, a free agent to be, also has not played in a World Cup or Olympics. -via The Athletic / June 14, 2023
