Illini in the NBA

#526      
Elsewhere in the G-League, Jaylon Tate is averaging 3 ppg, 1.8 rpg, and 1.2 apg while playing an average of 14 minutes per game for the Santa Cruz Warriors. Notably averaging an abysmal 22.2% (4 of 18) from the field, including 25% (2 of 8) from 3 pt land.
Jaylon appears to have become a much better 3 pt shooter since his days at Illinois. 🤣

Read today that Ayo's averaging 19 minutes a game, article was about Coby White and him trying to work back in the rotation, said with Ayo entrenched in the 10 man rotation he was only getting 11 minutes..small sample but Coach seems to be in on Ayo.

Donovan has praised Ayo numerous times this year....one article he said Ayo has "" IT ""..............................Ayo is earning his minutes with steady and improving play , at least in my opinion

Looked like Ayo was open for 3 a couple of times and White ignored him and missed a shot...I get it they're basically competing for a job.

I'm not a Coby hater but he needs to go...too redundant....think I heard Sexton might have a significant injury so Detroit might be in the market.

Ayo with 23 minutes and 8-10 pts on efficient scoring. Limited sample and Coby White coming off injury but Ayo seems to have more if a complete game and prescence out there.

This west coast just proved Bulls need Ayo and he belongs on the rotation. Great for him looks to be really rewareded in two years when he signs a regular veteran NBA contract

Sexton is on Cleveland. They also just lost Mobley for at least a couple weeks, so even though early in season they might be in a wait and see situation since weren’t supposed to be very good anyway. And White isn’t likely going anywhere while he’s shooting 9% from the field. Needs to show he’s healthy to have any trade value.

Cleveland isn’t in a rush to win now anyway, their core is super young. Doubt they’d give up any meaningful assets for Coby. Coby will get into his grove, just needs time. He has been a primary scorer his whole career…has to learn a new role while bouncing back from an injury. Not easy

Ayo is an NBA team dream; second round steal, eager learner re coaches and vets, no character issues / great family, supremely confident without big ego.

Produces in big moments.
Plays defense.
This great Illini will have a long career. (Go ahead, bet the beach house)
