Jerry Colangelo On Promoting Derrick White To Team USA Roster: 'He's a Very Unique Player' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Aug 11, 2019 12:51 am

Jerry Colangelo complimented Derrick White's performances in Team USA training camp that lead to the player moving onto the next round of practices.


White and Marvin Bagley replaced Thaddeus Young and Bam Adebayo as the roster got cut down to 17 players.


"I think White has been very, very good. What a story that is. You talk about his journey. He is a very unique player. He’s got a gait to him. He’s got interesting floaters in the lane. He’s sly. A good passer, impressive," said Colangelo, according to Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News.


Colangelo plans to take 15 players to Australia for an exhibition game before cutting down the roster to 12.

Derrick White has a chance to be something special - as long as he keeps putting the work in.

Observing the way he plays, reminds me a lot of Brandon Roy - crafty, great range, wonderful all around game.

Hopefully DW has a long career ahead of him : as always, Spurs pick up another jewel ...

Being 25 now, he's in his prime.
