our first call literally was Delon Wright, because we wanted somebody that could defend next to Luka and most of our guys, particularly our ones, twos were walk-it-up guys. Delon's a downhill guy who can defend multiple positions. We'll work with him some on his shot, but he's a great finisher, he can get to the rim, he'll make the play, he helps make his teammates better, and that's what we were looking for. Because trying to get Luka to guard point guards is not going to work. With Jalen Brunson, he did a great job as a rookie and he'll get better, but his strength still, he's still learning to stay in front of guys. Delon is there. Delon's a passer, a creator, but now 6-foot-5 will be our smallest guy in the starting lineup. That changes who we are.

That's very cool! Glad to hear that. That sounds like the perfect role for him.


Apparenrtly drlon is a **** defender according to this board.

Bruno looks good BTW, idk why he could never be consistent with his shot. Even in the G-league he was only hovering around 30% from 3. Definitely has the tools maybe he finally puts it all together.

Delon Wright always had a higher upside than FVV but we don't win a title without the latter so it was a necessary move, plus it's not like we were giving him minutes ahead of Fred anyways

FVV is a better shooter and thats why we won the championship. As far as defense and pg skills they were about the same, though I liked delons defensive instincts and size more as well as being more of a natural facilitator. But again you can't win in today's NBA without shooting.

I just bought a Kawhi Clippers jersey from China for $20 just to troll my friends and co-workers. I am not a good person.

I don't see why a team would do so when he's going to opt out next summer as the likely best free agent.

If it's from Jack, Terry or Aimee, most likely.
