Addition, subtraction, math is really a concept isn’t it? But enough about things I struggled with freshman year in Carswell.
Wake Forest landed one of the better targets from the Transfer Portal in Ian DuBose

With graduating Brandon Childress, Andrien White, and Torry Johnson, while losing Sharone Wright Jr to the transfer portal, Wake desperately needed a guard from somewhere. This isn’t to diminish Marcus Watson, Djimon Bailey or Quadry Adams. This team needs experience and proven shooting and DuBose fits that and should come in and start immediately.
At 6-4, 210lbs, he averaged 19 PPG and 7.3 RPG. Having another option to score is going to be huge, as Chaundee Brown and Olivier Sarr can’t be expected to be the only two proven scorers. One ding on him would have to be on the defensive end.
Scout’s take: “Good size, can score all three levels, and he’s creative — more athletic than you think. But they [Houston Baptist] play as fast as they can, so his stats are a little skewed. He’s disinterested on defense at best, but that’s more because of their team and style.” https://t.co/dP0z69vT1K— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanHoops) March 30, 2020
That is a red flag but a good exercise to play is, “if someone makes you 2 points better offensively, but 1 point worse defensively, do you take them?”
To me the answer is yes, and i’d do that if the defense and offense were switched. If you have something to(please don’t roast me) hang your hat on, you are a valuable piece to any and all teams.
This will not be the last domino to fall as there are at least two more shoes to drop(that could mean addition or subtraction) and we have a lot more time on our hands given what is going on in the world.
