Pistons sign swingman Luis Montero, 2way contract

Recommended Posts

Luis Montero, 24, is a sweet-shooting G/F with a whole bag of high-rent tools.  

I see a capable passer and a spot-up shooter with a really nice follow-through . . . not the quickest shot mechanism, though.  Likes to handle the rock but his handle has some slop.  Good rebounding wing, long arms put to good use on defense, can finish but only with RH, doesn't play above the rim at 6'7".

Best case player comp:  Tony Snell

The scouts like this kid in a vacuum, but so far he hasn't been able to perform against top talent.  Some say experience will cure that, but whatever the case, there is little doubt SVG is stocking up on shooters for the future.  He was a superstar in JUCO, then declared for the draft rather than make good on his LOI to South Florida.  After going undrafted, he was underwhelming in parts of 12 games for Portland in 15-16.  Here he is in SL action for them.
