    Why do we highly doubt JJ re-signs? We have his early Bird rights and can offer close to the MLE in terms of a contract.

    I think HE would want to re-sign with us, I don't think the Raptors would put him as a priority to bring back. Casey doesn't trust him and limits him. He's only playing because Carroll is injured. What's the point of bringing him back? That's why I think we let him go or trade him if we are really serious about getting this PF.

    But personally I would love to have him back. Especially with his clearly improved 3 point shot. And that Open Gym episode shows us why he has improved his shot as much as he has.

    Sure, we might trade him. Gotta get salary ballast from somewhere.

    But I don't understand the reasoning for the Raptors not wanting him back if he were not to be traded. He's a multi-position versatile backup, who is great with the young players and is able to plug into any role (no minutes, backup minutes, starting) without a hitch, AND provides a top notch defender for situational subs as well. Meanwhile his value is low enough we aren't likely to get outbid this summer and he is one of the few expiring pieces we actually have the ability to offer a raise with his rights, so we can re-sign him without using an exception (which could then be saved for BB or Scola).

    I think it's too soon for Bruno to get minutes with the big team, his skill level just isn't there yet. Give him the summer to work on some things, get in some summer league games and come into training camp next year ready to play a small role. I think 2017-2018 is his year to actually contribute, and that's okay.

    There's absolutely no rush with him, he'll be 22 and ready to play average to big minutes on a playoff team. The years of starting a rookie and letting him learn out there are gone. We have a good team, and we are trying to build a great team through proper development.

    Yeah, I look at this season as his freshman year in college at a mid major. He won't be ready for heavy minutes next year, but 5-10 per game seems reasonable.

    His D-League Stats over 24 games:

    32 min, 13.6 pts, .380 FG, .344 3PT, 6.5 3PA, .721 FT, 2.5 FTA, 5.8 reb, 1.5 ast, 0.9 stl, 1.8 blk, 1.9 TO, 4 PF, .500 TS%

    His high points are 3 point shooting, rebounding, and blocks. He needs to work on his non-3 point shooting offense, as well as getting to the line more. Also, cut down on fouls. Considering the big team would mainly use him for spot up 3pt shooting, rebounding, and defense, he should be able to contribute next year.

    I hope we keep our top 10 pick this year so I don't have to hear fans chanting for Bruno ever again. Shit is embarrassing.

    I like the Bruno chants. It's not like people are doing it thoughout the game. It's usually at appropriate times. It must give him confidence and a boost in moral, which will only help in the long run.

    Will Casey be back?
    If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

    If we win one playoff round, almost assuredly. If we do not, almost assuredly not.

    Has Bruno shown anything after a 1.5 years that he will turn into anything meaningful?

    Yes. He's a, athletic 6'9-6'10 20 year old with a 7'6 wingspan, strong work ethic, and a silky jumper. Has shown good instincts on defense and has made strides with his consistency on that end of the floor. Needs to reign in his shot selection from what I've seen, but so do a lot of players.

    I think the D-League has grown his skills in leaps and bounds, but it's done some damage to his decision making by giving him too much free reign. Talent is clear, whether he can control it is less so.

    Bruno really isn't that athletic from what I've seen.
