Doesn't mean much. Cade's a much better shooter and uses the same type of play to create space with his body. He'll be fine.

Cade's shooting this year has been surprising. But even watching him against college defenders he's not great at getting too or finishing around the rim. On the year only 31% of his shots have been at the rim and he's only shooting 57% on those attempts. 30% of his shots have been mid-range jumpers and he's only shooting 36% on those attempts. Not to mention his 3.5 AST/4.2 TO ratio. 

For comparison 39% of RJ Barrett's shots came at the rim and he shot 64% on those attempts. And 27% of his shots were mid-range jumpers and he shot 37% on those attempts. While also having a 4.3 AST/3.2 TO ratio. 

I think Cade will be a good pro for sure but I don't think he'll live up to expectations. I'd honestly probably take Jalen Green over Cunningham at the top of the draft.

theyre playing a zone

That's been a consistent theme throughout the season for Cade though. Him shooting the 3 at a 40% clip saved his stat line this year. He almost shot better on 3PA than 2PA on the year.

In 2 NCAA tournament games Cade averaged 17.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 2.5 turnovers while shooting 28% FG and 31% 3FG against Liberty (154th in adjusted defensive rating) and Oregon State (89th in adjusted defensive rating).

I'd compare him to a lesser version of Jayson Tatum rather than Luka though.

I didn't compare him to Luka. I compared his athleticism to Luka. Why is this always so hard for people?

Who’s he gonna guard?

The same people 80% of the league "guards" because there's like a handful of actual good defenders in the NBA.
