Thread: What do you want to see out of Solomon Hill?

  1. #1

    Default What do you want to see out of Solomon Hill?

    Obviously the big talk with PG going down is lets see what we have in Solo to develop him, but my question is, what do you hope he can develop into? Obviously everyone would love for Solo to be a 25 ppg guy and all, but realistically what do you want him to be? In my opinion, I want to see Solo show he has worked on his 3 pt shot and shoot it at a 36-37% clip, work on posting up the smaller wings and prove he can be a double digit scorer in this league and live up to the hype Vogel has given him on the defensive end. If that ends up working out, I could see a Solo and PG wing duo working out in the future.

    I WISH that he can become a 3-D type Player.....but at the very least, I hope that he can simply be a fairly solid Perimeter defender that won't be a complete offensive liability.

    Anything beyond that is just gravy.

    If Solo can become a Jimmy Butler esque player that would be FANTASTIC for us. I just want to see 11-12 ppg 4-5 rpg 1-2 apg on 45ish% shooting, and I think that would be fantastic for us.

    This. I want to see him play consistent minutes all year regardless of whether he's any good or not. There's zero reason not to.

    On the offensive end, I want to see him get a chance to actually create a little bit this year as opposed to just leaving him out on the perimeter. Overall though if he plays solid defense, improved his outside shot, and rebounds I'll be happy.

    PJ Tucker-type of player.

    Its not always about the numbers as it is the impact. A tough, hard nosed, physocal defender that cuts without the ball and can knock down open 3s

    Progress in his game. Now that he has been thrust atop the depth chart, the pressure is on. I hope he doesn't press too much. Play defense, knock down open shots. Asking him to score 10+ ppg might be a little much for a second year, late first round pick who looked overwhelmed in his limited action last year might be a bit optimistic.

    This is where I'm at. I think the former should be fairly attainable, with the latter possible also.

    A decent rotation player is about the best you can expect.

    A total flop is the worst you can fear.

    A good perimeter defender that is not offensively inept but will not be putting up 20 a night. If he can play solid d and put up 10-15 a night consistently I am very happy.

    If we can get Solo to be a solid starter in this league, that would be perfect for us in the future. Basically, Solo develop a good 3 (He did work with a shooting coach) and play defense the way Vogel says you can, and I would love to watch a Solo/PG wing combo in the future just because of how good defensively that combination would be, and if Solo is a good outside shooter thats the perfect guy to play next to PG imo, and Solo did use the post in college a bit, I think he can post up smaller wings. C.J. Miles would then be the perfect instant offense and can easily step in and play big minutes if Solo doesn't have it one night. Its a lot to ask for, but I am really interested in watching Solo play.

    I want to see Solo get consistent minutes, 15 mpg or more. I would like to see him be a decent defender and ball handler and improve overall during the season.

    Long term, ideally, I would like to see Solo be a good consistent starter than can play solid defense, handle the ball adequately and score enough to keep defenses honest.

    I want him to start and do all the little things to make the other starters better. A gap filler. He's a smart player, potentially, I'd like to see that developed. It's what you need now and what you'll need next to PG in the future. I guess Im saying I want him to be Heavy S.

    I agree with everyone that says a good solid 3 and D player would be great. I also would like to see if he has improved on his ability to drive and finish at the rim. He showed the ability to get to the basket last year but struggled to seal the deal and score. If he can show improvements in this area, he'll help the Pacers out greatly.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    A corner 3 and defense that doesn't make me cry.

    I would love to see him become Butler clone but i doubt that its possible as Butler is an elite defender IMO.

    Id look more toward a player like Wilson Chandler. Smooth all around game, does everything well but will never be considered an elite player or a star.

    I guess what im trying to say is I would be satisfied if Solo carried the "underrated" label.

    This season, I just want him to play good defense and not be inept on offense. Anything more than not inept is just gravy to me.

    Maybe we should do one of these for Vogel...

    But, I just want him to be comfortable in game situations, be able to understand his role and play it to the best of his ability with composure and good effort.

    I want to see him be a good defender from day 1 and gradually improve on offense throughout the season.
