1. Guerrier would play big minutes for Oregon basketball
Quincy Guerrier improved quite a bit from his freshman to his sophomore season. He went from a role player, averaging about 20 minutes per game to a bonafide starter, getting about 33 minutes per contest. His numbers improved dramatically from 6.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 0.8 blocks to 13.7 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks.
That’s the kind of production Oregon desperately needs on the wing in 2021-22.
Oregon brings in De’Vion Harmon and Rivaldo Soares who could help the backcourt out, but picking up one of the top wings on the market will instantly improve the small forward spot, especially after losing Chandler Lawson and LG Figueroa.
The Ducks need a starting small forward and they don’t quite have one yet so adding Guerrier would be perfect, especially since he’s shown he can play big minutes against elite competition.
If he thought 33 minutes per game was a lot, he’d probably play see even more playing time for the Ducks. He needs to be a starter immediately and it just makes sense that he winds up in Eugene.
