    Why would you need another PG?You already have Wolters and Westerman+ Sabeckis as a back up for them.You miss much more athleticism on SF/PF position, and some tweener between those 2 position would be quite usefull although Jankunas is not getting younger

    Sabeckis will probably be loaned somewhere. The jump to Žalgiris was to big for him. Westermann is more creative SG than PG in Šaras system. In his first season in Kaunas, he was on the court together with Pangos or Lekavicius majority of the time. First and foremost current Žalgiris lacked 3pt shooting and fast break offense. Looks like that both those things are the strengths of Walton's.

    Sabeckis can't handle EL level. I guess you can forget about him - either deep bench, either will be loaned somewhere. Walton is different type of PG than Leo or Wolters, seems to be a good shooter, which we lacked, so can bring more versatility and options for Saras. Overall players doesn't stick to one position what comes to Zalgiris and Saras system, Leo can play from 1 to 3, Walters can be used as 2 as he is good scorer. Won't be surprised to see all of them at once on the court at some point

    Jasikevicius: Donatas Sabeckis will not be loaned this season. The addition of Derrick Walton Jr. is for a reason to make a depth roster for Zalgiris. They will also use players from their second team in the domestic league to be fresher and more prepared for Euroleague games.

    From the Eurohoops website;

    Tyler Ennis went down in the first minutes against Buyukcekmece and was immediately taken to the hospital.
    His fall seemed nasty and with a statement, Fenerbahce confirmed so, as the first tests on Ennis revealed a fractured left tibia.
    That being said, no further information about his recovery time has been revealed yet, which only means that Fenerbahce is on the market for a qualitative point guard to replace Ennis while he remains out of action.

    We should go for good sg rather then pg. Guler could be third pg. SG position is the weakest spot in the roster.

    Usually such injuries take up to 6 months to recover. If everything will go well, might be less

    He's going to be more productive than Tyler Ennis. Also, he has european basketball experience, so that's a big advantage. Having him off the bench will make Fener better on the offensive end.

    Erick Green is one of the players in our shortlist at last 3 years. He is good shooter and good scorer. He can take responsibility when team system struggle. Also he is not ball-hog trpe players. He can do his job without holding ball too much. His Oly career could be helpful to adjust a system-first team. I am hopeful about this transfer.

    It will be interesting to see, how one of the worst defenders in Europe will play in Obra’s system. But probably the best option for Fener in this situation. He at least has experience in Europe. On the other hand he likes the ball too much, he’s not exactly off ball player. Nunnally is 1 class better. Fener will qualify without much problems in F4. But I don’t like this team for do or die games in F4. Vesely will disappear like always and Sloukas is not creative enough.

    He is different player than you described. He is not Nunnaly type player. Nunnaly is great shooter (best with Carrol ) but his own productivity is awful at euroleague level. Green can find his shot and efficient for that role. Green's usage rate is high but he doesnt hold the ball too much in his hands.

    He is not one of the worst defenders. Actually his perimeter defence is good but off-ball defence is bad and he sometimes struggles to escape from screens. This weakness are about defence attitude. If he try to be more active at defence, he can be okay easily. His quickness and wingspan is very suitable for that. Obradovic definately will demand more atitiude at defence. I hope he answers that.

    That’s my point. For Obra’s system, players like Nunnally are better, because they do exactly what their role is. Green needs the ball in his hand to create for himself. I can already see red Obra’s face after Green forcing his shots. Green is not bad player, but his style is much more effective, when he’s playing for small teams and he’s alpha scorer. He was extremely bad defender last year and that was the main reason his playing time went down considerably during the season.

    erick green is the worst defender ive seen playing in the greek league. he has a really weak body frame,gets destroyed at screens,gets posted up very easily (rivers hasnt posted another guy for the 2 years playing at panathinaikos) etc. he is better when having the ball on his hands,but he is a good shooter and thats what he will have to do at fener. fener has other players that play on ball (sloukas,datome,lauvergne) and green will not be one of them. and if he does he becomes way too selfish forcing shoots out of logic (search greek league 2017 finals,when he thought it was a streetball league). fener still lacks penetration and perimeter defence but he is a better fit than ennis who was same type of player like sloukas. fener needed someone like delaney that can create for himself and others and drive as well,but from the free agents green was one of the best choices. but saying he is not a bad defender is a joke. this guy is worse than spanoulis

    Per Eurohoops, Green shot 52% in 3PT on assisted shots. So he doesn't need the ball but yes, he'd prefer it.

    Also we needed a guy who can create his shot anyway. Currently only reliable guy for that job is Bobby, but he'll have to play in Turkish league too, so Green will have his chances to create.

    He is not very compatible with Sloukas as he also plays like a ballhog, but it's not a terrible fit as both of them are adequate spot up shooters.

    I'm only concerned about his defense... Our perimeter defense is already soft as it is.

    I’m more skeptical about his fit in Fener, but like I said, probably the best player Fener could sign at this moment.
