I would've thought so too, because how many guards can we realistically have? Especially when (on paper) we return Smith, Shungu, Robin, Deloney, and add Mazzulla.I would've thought they'd be looking at someone with a little more size. 3pt shooting is certainly an area of need though.
But as noted, we do need 3-point shooting. And (based solely on statistics) Chavez is a 3-point shooter.
We do have two scholarships left. I wouldn't be surprised if they're hoping to land a transfer in the post, because I'm not sure what 2020 HS bigs are still available at this point (I think there might be a couple we're sniffing around, but not sure). And I guess if you can't get talent at the position you need, just getting talent is the next best thing.
