Hanlan is likely more talented (and I base this on what I read about him on here, not on any footage I've seen) than Daniels. However, unless Hanlan comes in and surprises to the level of someone like a Trey Burke at Michigan last year, this is a net negative this year due to depth concerns.
We essentially now have 4 players for the 3 guard spots in Heckmann, Jackson, Rahon, and Hanlan. Perhaps Anderson can swing to 3, but likely not for more than 5-6 minutes per game max, as our frontcourt depth is shoddy as well.
The one positive thing, although this falls into the category of things I'll believe once I see, is that one of the EA people said that Odio was the most improved player from last year. If he can actually play meaningful minutes it would certainly help with depth at the 3 and some 4.
There is no sugarcoating the loss of daniels as a positive for this season. An injury to a ball handler and we are really in trouble. I think it means a ery limited usage of three guard sets too for reasons stated above. You can't have all of your potential PGs gassed at the same time.
BC once attracted stars like Abrams, Adams, Agbai, Austin, Bagley, Barros, Bell, Curley, Driscoll, Dudley, Eisley, Evans, Huckaby, Jackson, McCready, Murphy, O'Brien, Rice, Smith, Williams, et al.
Those days are gone.
And who is responsible for that?
