Every year, a couple of guys in the league stand out in preseason and it carries over into the regular season, as they become legitimate contributors/rotation guys. Could Brian Roberts be this year's "come out of nowhere" contributor for NOH?

I know they're grooming Rivers, but he's clearly not a PG.
I know Vasquez is the incumbent starter, and I've been a Vasquez fan since his college days (I graduated from Maryland), but Roberts is the better scorer, and not too far behind him on the playmaking ability.

I mean, a guy who's averaging nearly 12 ppg and 5 assists has to get minutes, right?
Or is this a mirage, and he's only getting minutes because Eric Gordon isn't playing?

What do you all think?

I'm still trying to figure him out. I'd like to see more of him in real games. So far though, I've liked what I've seen.
