Jeff Coby – 2018-19 G-League Player Profile
June 20th, 2019
PF – 6’8, 227lbs – Born 4th February 1994
Beginning his second professional season with an unexpected training camp contract from New York – admittedly lasting only seven days before being waived – Coby managed only one day longer than that with the Knicks’ G-League affiliate Westchester before being cut again. He was latterly picked up by the Spurs for a couple of weeks as cover for Travis Trice and John Holland while they went off for national team duty, but barely played, was cut, and finished the season with Racing in Luxembourg for the final three games of their postseason, averaging 13.3 points and 15.0 rebounds per game. Coby has a good physical profile, a well-built 6’8 with good mobility, and he is a good offensive rebounder with potential as a transition threat, roll man, athletic finisher, mid-range shooter and perimeter defender. He employs a reasonable free throw line jump shot, floats baseline and is mobile enough to fill in space. However, it is all more potential than reality; Coby creates no offence, relies on being set up, is out of control in the post, frequently loses position on defence mostly through being over-aggressive, and lacks for poise on both ends. At this level and above, better finishers are available.

I am continuously intrigued by the esoterica and minutiae of all the aspects of building a basketball team. I want to understand how to build the best basketball teams possible. No, I don’t know why, either.
