I don't think that Jordan Bell was ever allowed to handle the ball. Kuminga did that for some plays while Steph was on the court. This tells me (and when watching him it's obvious why) that the org has trust in the ability of JK. He will be only able to showcase that in spurts but it would be a waste to just have him catch lobs.
I think he did really well last game, those were some really promising signs that we will get some impactful rotation minutes from him this season. He adds something to that team that nobody else can.
Kerr already said his passing is quite good, so he will be handling it I think. As long as he doesn't turn into an iso chucker with massive TOs like he was doing in SL.
What impressed more than his dunks was defense. He actually looked like he belonged, which is crazy for a guy that just joined and has very little (overall) bball experience.
