I agree with this. It's going to be *really* interesting to see what Clifford does if Mo struggles at all and Birch matches last year's production.
But getting back on topic, Gravett has some semi interesting potential as a shooter. Hit 40% of his college threes on over 5 attempts a game.
One of my biggest hopes for this season beyond success on the court is that I really hope the Magic are finally going to put legitimate emphasis on Lakeland as a developmental tool.
That is one thing that teams like Toronto and Denver have done really well. They didn't all spend extensive time in the G-League, but you look up and down the Raptors and Nuggets rosters and they have undrafted guys, guys picked in the 20s and guys picked in the 2nd round all contributing and maximizing their abilities.
