Sekou actually has some really nice takes to the basket.

They're pretty short-handed today.

Are they running a new offense? This definitely is not 5 out

Some games you can see Sekou being the player people think he can become. Today is one of those games.

Yuck. They are playing awful. Hopefully they don’t learn poor habits from this stretch of games. A lot of hero ball.

Feels like Frank is worth at least what Josh Jackson was worth last year. At most probably 3 years $5 million per. He still hasn't shown too much, but he's shown enough that he is clearly good enough to be a rotation player in this league and he is young and getting better.

For sure Casey has relaxed the reigns a bit and is just letting the young guys play without too much control over each play that is happening out there. It's strange to see him giving young guys so much freedom out there to make mistakes.

I’m hoping that’s what it ends up as. I just hope some team doesn’t swoop in and offer a ridiculous contract.

I’m sure Casey is praying for a ton of mistakes so he doesn’t have to out right tank at the end again like last night. That was ugly. It’s not working though and we’re still in this game because the Hornets are so depleted. Hopefully they run away with it soon and it doesn’t come to that again.

If these two guys with questionable futures with the team (Sekou, Diallo) win us this game, I’m gonna be upset.

Is there any young player besides DS that hasn't shown out this season? I swear you can make a case to keep everyone of these players and just let them develop.

I think we could've done it about 10 or so games earlier especially if we're being this audacious about it. But better late than never.

it's good to see Sekou show up though, he's showing some moves out there
