    generally i agree with your sentiment, but what do you mean by "the skills are not"? He has shown a lot more skills than I would have expected given the circumstances around us drafting him.

    Seems to me like somehow he's gone from clueless to "looks like a fairly inexperienced prospect" in 1 year. I'd say thats a pretty damn good improvement, honestly, considering how useless his D-league time was.
    By skills, what I meant was the things that take him from being a talented guy to an NBA player. Rotational awareness, how to use a screen or set one for that matter, positioning in a pick n' pop/roll play, boxing out etc., etc...

    He's so far just hung out on the perimeter waiting for the kick out for an open shot because shooting is the only talent or skill he seems to have at the moment. I hope he gets a lot of minutes in the D-League because the basic talent is impressive.

    • Bruno is probably 2 contacts away from being a impact player.

        I think he could be a solid 3 and D player by the end of his rookie deal

        If he stays in the NBA he may not peak until 28/29 (complete speculation on my part)

          His D is pretty bad it's his length that saves him. That's why it don't look so bad. I don't think he can see passed the player In front of him. He bites a lot on fakes.

            Which usually improves with experience. As he learns, he'll realize he can contest with his length and doesn't need to bite on those fakes.

                • Remember when people doubted this kid as a prospect, it was like 2 weeks ago.

                    • Needs to get more consistent with his three pointer, and not dribble into trouble, but otherwise he's looked so much better than last season. A year of D-League seasoning will do wonders for him.

                        • It's kind of astonishing how people(fans) can be so impatient these days. We have a team that's been close to the top of the conference for the last two years, so they can be patient with a guy that was drafted 20. Whether he pans out or not, I don't know, but to have written him off before/during/after his rookie season - gimme a break.

                          Not every regular season game, OR PRE-SEASON game, is going to make Bruno's career. The guy is gonna have a lot of opportunity to get playing minutes in the D League this year, against players that are playing the American style game, something he cannot be fully accustomed to at this point.

                          Just have some perspective on what you expect out of the kid and how soon you expect it.

                            • He still needs to improve on everything, but I've been really impressed with his defense, he is starting to get the hang of defending and using his length without fouling.
