So as many discuss free agency, etc., I want to talk about internal options. THT has been the most discussed, but let's discuss others, as well. Admittedly, I watched no more than 5 G-League games this past season, so feel free to add your thoughts.

THT - He legitimately is a rotational guy or trade chip if needed.

Cacok - As we discuss the need for a small ball center, I like his potential to fill this need. Is there something I am missing if we cannot bering back 'kieff?

Kostas - He looks raw, but I see a plus athlete with height and upside.If his skills grow in teh abbreviated off season, where does he fit in? Does he fit in? I am not familiear with his contract status as a 2-way player.

I am not familiar enough with other players to comment, but wanted to start a conversation.

LMK what you all think.

All three have unique skill-sets and all 3 performed well in the G - League. Hopefully they'll stay with the organization and hone their talents.

THT
has potential on both sides of the floor. He needs to improve his 3 pt. shot and his defense but he has the upside to contribute at some point within a season or two.
He can get to the rim, has nice handles and is fearless.
With his 7 ft. swing-span THT could develop into a solid all-around perimeter player. There's still work to be done.
THT stats: https://www.basketball-reference.com/gleague/players/h/hortota01d.html

Cacok
has a "nose for the ball" and an energizer bunny motor. DC is severely undersized but that hasn't stopped him from rebounding.
Unfortunately his outside shoot is almost non-existent. Developing a dependable outside shot will determine his future.
Because he can flat-rebound, Cacok could help in a limited role on down the line. He was All-G-League 1st Team is past season.
Cacok stats: 19.4 points (.659 FG%), 11.9 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 23.9 minutes per game. He scored in double-figures in every game and finished the season with 27 double-doubles.
https://southbay.gleague.nba.com/news/devontae-cacok-named-to-all-nba-g-league-first-team/

Kostas
Is a work-in-progress and the rawest of the group. He'll need to bulk up because he is too "light in the tail." He needs to hit the weight room everyday of the off season and eat right.
Kostas has great length that allows him block shots and be disruptive defensively. He is already a decent defender and could become a solid defender through work and effort.
KA Stats:14.1 PTS, 7.8 rebs, 1.6 assists, 1.3 blocks.

Nice writeup.

Cacock - his shooting is similar to a rookie Randle. Absolutely no touch in their shots and it will take at minimum 2 years to fix his shooting stroke and develop at least a midrange game.

Kostas - supposedly put on 15 lbs last year and needs another 20. His high center of gravity will always affect his ability to anchor in the paint. He needs to shoot from the perimeter and I believe he has this ability in him. He showed this in his pre-draft work out videio.

Ok. We are mixing here apples & oranges. THT just finished his rookie year and is under contract. Cacock & Kostas were our 2way contracts and are currently UFA. They were permitted to be in the playoffs because of the pandemic and the bubble. If we want them on the team, we will have to give them a contract and a roster spot, the same way we did with AC last year.

So do 2 ways expire each season? Can they be brought back on another 2 way? Just curious how this works.

If they cannot be brought back to the South Bay Lakers, are they worth 1 year contracts in everyone's opinion?

Cacok and Kostas are valuable projects so they'll likely retain their contracts (if not signed by another team/UFA).
THT is under contract and will probably spend most of the time with the Lakers.

With the short turn around, I wonder how much we will be using our 2 way contracts to help load manage on back to back nights.

Did anyone catch Dudley saying that having worked out and run games with them, THT and Kostas are good enough to get minutes this season?

The NBA G League may return either fully or partially in a bubble

Quote:
The NBA G League couldn’t finish last season due to the coronavirus pandemic and the challenges of commercial travel during it, so a bubble might be the only way for the league to resume in 2020.

Bubble will make their play better, no distraction but need to get paid so don’t need to work a second job

I wonder if they will consider having the G Leaguers work out and practice with the NBA teams in a similar fashion to MLB to limit outside contact and travel.

Georgia Bubble Being Considered For G League

Quote:
An Atlanta-area “bubble” concept is one of the options being mulled for the G League season, Marc Stein of the New York Times tweets.

Under the proposal, NBA teams would pay a fee in the neighborhood of $500K to play their G League games in Georgia, rather than their home sites. Not all G League clubs would be expected to participate there.
