Interesting note that Mangok was up against Kendrick Perkins and showed some good finishes against solid D

I guess I thought the team would hang on to guys and develop them in Greensboro. Maybe that's the plan with Paige and Mangok. Last year, I thought Xavier Munford Mike Tobey and Perry Ellis might be worth developing, that the team would hang onto them, like a minor league baseball team, but there doesn't seem to be any reason for them to hang around, they get paid more oversees, etc.

Is there another team out there leveraging the g league better than the Hornets right now? We seem to be using that platform optimally for developing our young talent. Would love to see how McDaniels and Caleb do there for a full season. Look at what it did for Devonte and Bacon.

It might have actually been a bad thing for Bacon as it gave him the green light to do this:

The most impressive thing I saw from twin 2 performance is the number of 3s with a foot on the line that he takes. Hendo was already one of a kind but we have another good one here!

Jalen McDaniels can score the ball, if only we could put 30 pounds on hims
ps check out the attendance in that video College Park is the ATL affiliate announced attendance was 580 can't be more than like 10 people there

fun glimpses of Cody Martin as playmaker in that video and this one an alley oop reverse to Caleb:
