Glad JH is getting some time. The more athletic brother for sure. One thing I love about these brothers is that the ball rarely sticks in either one's hands for more than a second or two. They make their moves very quickly, stay in motion, and have a good sense of where everyone else is.

Now can JH always shoot like that?!?!

I'm leaning toward it being a hot shooting night, but we'll wait and see. The game was definitely a positive sign. Denver knows how to draft, especially with Euro's.

I had him in a dynasty league...long term one...sitting on the bench, finally dropped him to add someone else, and of course he got snagged right before I was able to add him back. :nonono:

At least I got Middleton late in draft which seems to have been a nice move, but still not happy I made that move...once again... :nonono:

That's too bad. With these Hernangomez bros it's a matter of when, not if, they get time but who knew when that was gonna come for Juancho. I've only seen a few clips of JH but it's the same deal except he can jump higher and isn't as strong.

Saric has to overtake Embiid as ROY if he doesn't play more.

Dario stays hot - 20/11 at TD against the C's.

If Joel Embiid doesn't play anymore, Saric is now the front-runner for ROY.

Does he really have a chance of taking the ROY ?

He and Simmons will form a great duo. If they draft a PG that can shoot and Emblid comes back healthy...watch out for Philly! :clap:

Well, he's second in scoring, second in rebounding, second in 3 pointers made, and 2nd in double doubles for rookies. Most of the categories he's second in are to Joel, so without Embiid as competition, he's got a solid chance.

When the Raptors choose Jakob poelti at 9. I was so pissed. I had so much ignorance thinking he was another euro big who couldn't play defense. Baragnani and Valanciunas type but man he is the complete opposite.

Reminds of Stephen adams with a better offense game and passing. Can't until the Raptors trade Valanciunas. So he can be unleashed

What's up with Delon Wright? Does he ever get to see the floor?

He was hurt to start the season, so we signed Fred Vanvleet to be the third string point guard. And then Fred showed a ton of promise and pushed Joseph for the backup PG role at times, which didn't do Wright any favors. Wright is a solid PG prospect buried by depth unfortunately.

Yeah I liked him coming out of Utah and was kind of confused as to what happened.

I'm guessing the Raptors don't need Jahlil Okafor then if Poeltl can't even get minutes?

I'd like to see Delon get a real opportunity

he helped lead a 20 point comeback the other day against charlotte playing the 3 lol. he's been injured a lot of this season, but now it seems like he's found a spot as ninth guy in the rotation as corey joseph has flagged

Wright plays very well whenever he gets the chance. He makes his share of mistakes like all developing players do, but the Raptors really are stacked for depth at guard and center. I expect they're going to make some room for Wright to start playing pretty soon, though, and frankly, I think they'll make some room for Poeltl by moving Valanciunas at some point, too. Moving Ross already made room for Powell and a little bit for Wright, too, though not much.

Saric is REALLY coming along. Probably ROY at this rate.

Valentine with a really solid game - 15/5/5/3 steals. He's a really good shooter but I'm a bit worried he won't be able to score outside of jumpers. Slow feet but doing surprisingly decent on defense, and his length is disruptive.

Thibs face still as relevant as ever in 2017.
