KZ Okpala has been putting up brutal numbers in the G league. I want to believe in him but I feel like we’ve missed on that pick. That’s fine though, can’t hit on everything.

KZ with a not as horrible game last night, 3-5 shooting to 9 points. Fouled out though.

I really think he's got a lot of rust to shed. And he's more raw then one would hope. Keep giving him 40 minutes per game and let's see

Don't over analyze Okpala's G-league stint. He was always going to be a project. His career starts next summer.

Wonder who we're going to draft.

That’s what I’m talking about KZ. You forget the dude is even on the squad at times, but he’s a talented young guy whose gonna get his chance next season too.

Consider him DJJ or Winslow insurance, I guess.

Skyforce and Suns are playing again tonight and again, KZ is showing out so far.

At the half, KZ has 11 points on 5/6 (1/1 from 3), 9 rebounds, 2 assists,

Gabe Vincent, our new 2 way player, has 16 points on 5/8 (5/7 from 3)

Kid should look at Oubre as far as what he can provide on the defensive end. As for offense, it's hard to tell exactly what he'll be good at at the nba level but he does have a smoothness about his game and promising handle for his size. This should allow him to get to comfortable spots and eventually be a very nice player in transition.

My main concern is that KZ has a very Dorrell Wright-esque disposition. Seems to lack self assurance and aggression. Those kinds barely ever reach the potential of their physical gifts. Other concern is if his body can hold up at this level.

At least he's showing some flashes now.

In term of body, KZ does give me some flashbacks to Pippen in his younger years. Once he add more mass..should be fun.

He's raw, but if you look closely you can see he has it in him to be more then a role player. Got all the physical tools and raw skills to be a versatile NBA starter.

That one game he played for the Heat (can't remember who we were facing) where he was in the DJJ role at the head of our 3-2 zone, he looked very promising. Good hands, athletic, he couldn't shoot to save his life but he looked like he had solid feel which made me hopeful. Seeing his G league numbers early on had me worrying that he was the next Bruno.

Reminds me of Billy Owens and Antoine Walker
