Exciting player that left us with memories of some truly epic dunks.

Sadly could never add a consistent shot to his game, or even just a driving & finishing element.

He’s a great story. Went from being waived, to a developmental two-way player, to a legit rotation worthy forward that landed a really nice deal.

A good news story, and a solid endorsement of our development program.

Best of luck in Portland, DJJ!

Loved this kid's time with us. I knew he'd work hard, and he did not disappoint.

126/109 ORTG/DRTG last season. Ridiculous.

Will always root for DJJ. Good kid. Hope he continues to work on his corner 3. He's still young and has time.

A good defender. Exciting dunks. A bit inconsistent on 3s, but improving. He can hit free throws now too. You got a good player at a great price! Love your team, btw. Good luck!

I’m happy to hear he can defend because otherwise his stats aren’t huge at least yet in his career. Seems like he’s a class act as well with a cool underdog story.

He was one of the best in our zone defense. We played him at the top of the key.

He's the best athlete in the NBA imo. He's definitely a useful player on a good team, the bottleneck really is his shooting. Coming into last season Spo said DJJ was the hardest worker and had put in a lot of hours to improve his game over the offseason. That was why it was a little disappointing that his 3pt shooting never really came around.

He played a bench role for us until we got Crowder and Iggy which is when Spo fazed him out. I still like him and I don't think you guys paid an unreasonable amount. He's still only 23 and has a lot of room to grow so I think that potential is worth something. I still remember a game I attended in person last season vs the Blazers. Carmelo and DJJ got into a back and forth during the game and DJJ got the better of the matchup. Definitely think that he's an upgrade over Melo.
