    I didn't realize how tall he is. He's actually 6'5 190. Long arms too. He's built a lot like Penny Hardaway. Penny is a little taller but similar body type.

    If Wright can develop a consistent 3pt shot/jump shot then we might have something in our hands.

    Pretty awesome to see he could guard Shane Battier.

    Maybe it's cause I just binge-watched Orange is the New Black but when Delon was smiling like a little kid in the postgame interview after the big Charlotte win, he was a dead ringer for Poussey Washington.
    If I were a vet on the team, I might make this his new nickname.

    Hope he has lots of reasons to smile going forward, that quarter was a thing of beauty.

    Heh, I noticed that back on draft night, and googling the two names shows that others have made that connection too.

    Ha. Wow. You're right. He even actually acknowledges it himself in a series of tweets

    I didn't watch the show, but my girlfriend did, and as soon as I brought it up she's like YES! THAT'S WHO HE LOOKS LIKE

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    I actually watch this show and can't believe I never realized this.

    I like to imagine he gets at least 10-15 from here on out in scenario 1, but it's probably more like Norm the last few months. Barring injury, he might DCP-CD as often as he gets spot minutes.

    Scenario 2, he has to pretty much take Cojo's role as backup PG and frequently used in 2 pg lineups, goof for 20-25 minutes every night.

    Seeing some nice work from Delon over the past few games. Took a few too many ill-advised 3s yesterday, but in general, I like his calmness/demeanor.

    And, like Powell, he seems to be learning DeRozan's "Euro-step" in the paint.

    I'm glad he is learning to the use the euro-step. He is tall and long, so he can cover a good amount of ground in 2 steps with the euro. Its a good move to have for Delon.

    Delon's been doing that since (at least) his Utah days. It's not new to him.

    Shooting the 3 was never a strength, but he does need to make the open looks. Looks like he will have 25 games to show what he will be going forward. No more what ifs.

    Not sure if Lowry will be worth max -- he is a great player but older now. Delon is not ready by any means for a starter role just yet, but I think he could be a solid starter maybe in 2018-19... he needs consistent backup minutes, which he's getting now and today showed you how much potential he has.

    Tough decision coming up - sign Lowry for at least 4 years at max or near max or cut bait and use the cap space on something else (including a stop gap PG).

    There is no cap space to use on anybody else that isn't already in a raptors uniform, because of the bird rights rule
