Hornets Scout Doubts Aguilar Ready
After two days and more than six hours of workouts, National Basketball Association New Orleans Hornets scout Don Sellers likes Japeth Aguilar’s game but deep down doesn’t believe the former Philippine Basketball Association No. 1 pick is ready for the big show yet.
Sellers, who serves as an advanced personnel scout for the Hornets, likes Aguilar’s athleticism, agility and potential but feels the 6’9” Filipino needs to become more aggressive and develop “toughness” to play in the next level – the NBA.
“I think he’s a work in progress,” he said. “I like some of the skills he brings to the table. Again, I want to reiterate this, he needs to become more of a westernized player which you saw today he’s made a commitment in doing. ”
