Is the Rondo or Nwaba trade going to prevent this? I agree with James Worthy that Rondo might not fit with this club.

Although Caruso shocked a lot of folks in Vegas, it wouldn’t be a surprise to the people that had the opportunity to watch him play for the OKC Blue. With the Blue, Caruso stood out as one of the finest defenders in the entire NBA G League, as he averaged 2.2 steals per game. Coinciding with that, Caruso was a huge reason why the OKC Blue stood as one of the best defensive teams in the league, as they held opponents to 101.8 points per game, the 2nd lowest average in the NBA G League.

Also shot 40.1% from three with 5.2 assists 4.9 rebounds. He is a legitimate nba player, just needs to find a spot on a team. Best defender at the PG spot in the d-league

A young Steve Blake!

I was always a huge fan of Blake. Great defender, good passer and shooter. If we can get a player like him on a rookie contract then that's a big deal

Not sure if we should sign him yet, but def invite him to camp and give hin some extended tine in preseason. If he looks good, he can take Nwabas spot IMO.

Our South Bay team could be good this season, especially if they add Bryant.
