    You must have missed the first paragraph:




    But your overall post is spot on. Lets say screw the 6'9" kid with a 7'7" wingspan who also happens to have a sweet stroke from deep and is not even 20 years old (making him essentially the same age as this years top prospects) because he didn't get a lot of game action and had to settle for learning a language, training under NBA guidance, skill development, and scrimmaging with NBA players.

    This wasn't the ideal situation so cut him.

    Maybe they can stretch his salary to minimize the cap hit from $1.6M next season to $533k over the next 3 seasons instead.

      Putting the cart before the horse here. God willing, Bruno is simply an NBA player..

        i see him as a SF that plays a ton of PF in various small ball lineups

        he's the skinniest 220 i've ever seen
        Pretty much sums up my thoughts. We really have little to go on at this point, but I see him as a SF, but should able to handle PF for small ball. But if he actually becomes a good NBA player, than that is very exciting because he should provide mismatches at either position on most nights.

          Very much feel he is a SF. Tough to see him putting on enough strength to play PF. And in either case, I'd be focusing his development on improving his quickness, laterals and dribbling skills rather than his post game or bulking.

          Small ball PF sure, but nowadays that's just a SF.

            I'm perplexed by all the negative talk about "bulking".

            Young players aren't physically big enough to play in the NBA, they ALL have to put on muscle. Period. JV putting on weight is essential, JV getting fat, is not.

            Same goes for all the young Raptors.

              The way Bruno plays is a 3.

              Sure he has the body of a 4 but it is how he plays that will dictate his role on the court.

              Maybe in later years he can adapt to be a 4 but I primarily see perimeter player from him right now

                This may the the CR talking but...currently I see him as a PFC....Pretty Fucking Clueless.

                That being said, I know my fantasy basketball team name for next year:

                      How about that new position? Versatile Forward.

                      With his quickness and length, if he fills out I don't see why he wouldn't be able to play and defend both spots quite easily.

                        I would never understand people... So negative towards Bruno, but optimistic for Ross...

                          I say SF for now. Ideally, we will add a 6'10/6'11 player with even longer wingspan to play PF.

                          Without really knowing his skill set (can he rebound? can he defend in the post?) we don't have much to go on except perimeter shooting and body measurements. Until I see him mixing it up in a physical style, a tall SF.
                          Agree 100%. Skill set should define your position much more than your size.

                          All these replies and not one mention of Kevin Durant? For shame. The Brazilian KD weeps.

                            Maybe it is because we have seen Ross play and show us that he can play. Ross's problem is in his head and has nothing to do with skills. As far as Bruno, he is one giant mystery.

                              I wouldn't call him a mystery man. Dude has ZERO game. I said this before and i'll say it again, watching him play is like watching a 10 year old kid play basketball for the FIRST TIME. I would be very surprised if this guy ever plays MEANINGFUL mins in the NBA.
