3. Will he ever be as effective an NBA player as Thabo Sefolosha used to be?
Mayberry: Yes. Even if Roberson never becomes a great shooter, his defense, rebounding and nose for the ball make him an impact player. If he concentrates on those things and develops them to the point where he can supply them consistently, he'll be a fantastic role player.
Slater: As effective as Thabo was last season? Yes. As effective as Thabo used to be? Ehh, that’s likely Roberson's ceiling. In different ways, they both affect the game on the perimeter defensively. Sefolosha more with length and smarts, Roberson more with quickness and tenacity. Roberson's ceiling is as a defensive stopper. He just has to get more polished on the offensive end.
Tramel: I will say yes. For this reason. Roberson has a distinct talent that is extraordinary. His rebounding is world class. So if his defense improves, he'll have a job. If his offense comes along to any degree, he'll have job security.
