    Things to be excited about next season:

    1) Keldon in a featured role
    2) Vassell's impact as a rookie
    3) Samanic's development (if any)
    4) White's consistency as one of the team's best players
    5) Lonnie's new skill as an electrifying passer--he was the only one giving great passes to Poetl in the bubble. I sense great chemistry between these two.

    If I missed any, please feel free to post in this thread.

    The thing is... How many young players is too many young players before your development resources are exhausted? We have five promising young players. Do people really want the whole team to be comprised of all young players? At what point does having too many actually have a negative impact on the team itself? If there were too few vets, would the locker room be able to contain itself? Or would there be Bobby Portis incidents? Hmm...

    If they retain two of Patty/Rudy/DDR/LMA, the culture issue is sorted (ideally Patty & Gay). The current core is also a set of humble/ hardworking young dudes in Murray, White, Keldon, Lonnie, Poeltl plus Vassell and Tre Jones by all indications. The task is now to get a star out of one or two of these. My bets are on Keldon & Walker and solid starters/ role players among the rest.

    Is it though?

    Leadership roles in its most effective form consists of building good relationships.

    How do you build good relationships? By giving your time and being intentional about it.

    Usually leaders really have time to handle two-ish trainees.

    If you only have two leaders/ vets on this team, that's six trainees per vet. How can you really dedicate your time building a relationship with six people?

    Looking forward to seeing Luka's development. Assuming this is the last year of DDR and LMA, we could go into next offseason with a projected SL of:

    Murray
    White
    Keldon
    Luka
    Poeltl

    IF Luka shows signs of being our future 4, I don't think we'll need to target any one position in the draft (lottery??) and FA. Just collect talent and make upgrades where possible.

    I hope so too but Luka is buried at the bottom of the depth chart

    Playing without Forbes/Beli/Mills combination. I don’t know how it took almost the entire season to realize that the experiment wouldn’t work. It took playing in the bubble and some injuries, to realize that we have young athletic core who plays better and could ho toe to toe with the best in the league. Now to have everybody healthy back, seeing the duo of White and Murray, Vassell’s defensive impact as legitimate 3 and D, this team could be so much better imo.

    Luka just needs to compete with Lyles and Gay.
    -Lyles gets playing time because he knows his rotations and the game plan to the T, not because he's super talented.
    -Father time is coming for Gay, so we might definitely see Luka at least replace him by the end of the season as a bench PF or by next season.

    This is how I see the minutes distribution to be:

    Murray (28)/ Lonnie (24)/ Tre
    White (28)/ Vassell (20)/ Mills or Q
    DeMar (28)/ Keldon (26)/ Q
    Lyles (20)/ Gay (18)/ Samanic
    Aldridge (26)/ Poetl (22)/ Eubanks

    -On Vassell: for reference, Nephew received 24 minutes of playing time in his rookie year.
    -DJ, Lonnie, Poetl, and White all see +4 mins increase in playing time from last year
    -DeMar and LMA see -6 mins decrease in playing time from last year
    -Keldon sees +8mins increase in playing time from last year

    The more I think about it, the more I see that Devin is the PERFECT teammate for Samanic. Devin is known as a supportive teammate, and became really close with Patrick Williams. Luka's spots and role are very similar to Pat with FSU. Pat is known as the shy, passive type who needs confidence and I believe Luka is a similar type. There's opportunity there for great chemistry.

    Luka has taken a sabbatical from social media for about a month now. He's going to surprise people.

    If Murray is not shipped out, I will be watching to see if/how he has progressed. I am on the Keldon bandwagon.

    It was a small sample size, but KJ and White really seemed to jell in the bubble. I hope that continues to grows as other compatible pairings emerge-- maybe Walker/Vassell, or Samanic/KJ. I'm still worried that Pop will play DDR 34 mpg. If that's not the case, I think it'll make a big difference, both for wins and development.

    That seems like the direction we're heading in.
