He isn’t very quick laterally and certainly isn’t the sort of above the rim player that Bridges is. Basically the biggest question that Brazdeikis is: who can he guard? I’m in the ‘wait and see’ camp that it can be anyone other than combo forwards.
OTOH, he’s a legit scorer and he’ll be able to get buckets from day one. Hit on a lot of this in the Iggy story I wrote the other day.
What makes you think that he’s a + athlete? Certainly what would make you say that in comparison to Bridges?
