    Yeah, was going to say that Birch better watch out or Precious will eat all the minutes at the 5-spot.

    He has stolen the starting C spot from Birch in my eyes. I thought he was going to take until towards the end of the season but he looks ready.

    I don't think we talk about Precious enough. He's heading into his second year, development and skill wise, he's on par with Siakam and OG in there development.

    It's going to take him a bit longer on D, the 5 is hard position to defend and he's a bit undersized. He'll find ways to defend the bigger dudes in time. Court vision and passing need to develop a bit, I would like to see him push the ball to the outlets on some of those breaks, and pass into the dunker spot on some of his drives. His shooting will come in time, but it's not that far off. Overall he's one of our most intriguing players.
    I think he still reminds me of a slightly more agile Ibaka in terms of overall game and feel. He is aggressive. I think if he can use that aggression this year and grow and then work on his playmaking and 3point shot he will be a beast.

    Does this guy have a nickname? Just catching up and watching the first preseason game now. What fun. Our bench mob is gonna be terrifying for the rest of the league. And Precious kinda looks like Predator with his physique, dreadlocks and bouncy gait. And there is the obvious alliteration.
    "Bob"

    Continues to look like a magnificent pickup.

    But, being named Precious, he hardly needs a nickname. :-D
    I hadn't thought about that.

    I think he is positioned to be one of those guys who exceeds all expectations. Don't know for sure why I think this. He certainly looked polished in SL. I know it's just Summer League, but Precious was beasting.
    He seems to be the kind of player you can pencil in major production with that motor/athleticism/skill package. Like Kenneth Farried…but with more shooting potential and defense.

    Is Precious the forgotten man? I think to start the season he is going to have a bigger impact than the attention he is (not) getting.

    The bench will be

    Flynn, Dragic, Barnes, Boucher, Precious

    Yuta and Svi are unlikely to see many minutes unless one of the top 10 is hurt. So while Pascal is out one of those guys will slide into the bench unit to replace whoever gets moved to the starting unit.
    I'm more excited to see that bench mob, than the starters.

    Precious/Barnes/Flynn are the Poeltl/Siakam/FVV trio from 2017 & 2018. Remember in 2018 they were part of our epic bench mob. That also included CJ Miles and Delon Wright.

    Dragic will have to captain that young bench. With maybe Yuta or Svi as that 5th guy.

    I don't know if he's forgotten so much as he's going to take a couple years. Expectations are up now for the 3 core guys in their mid to late 20's, but the guys in their early 20's with 0-3 seasons on their resumes is a whole other crop of players within the org now and they're going to have a few seasons here to develop as players and grow into their roles.
