He should have gone to NBA earlier. He was already in a clear descent before joining the Lakers.

I'm hoping it's not the same for Teodosic. I hope the Clippers suck, but he does well.

I'll admit I'm not too familiar with him, but isn't he basically supposed to be a taller Huertas with a jumper?

That's not a bad bench player! I think he could be one of the best passers in the NBA from day one, and I'm all about watching top notch passers.

Taller, more athletic Huertas, with a jumper and solid defense.

His defense is solid, he can shoot, he's scappy, and he's hungry. Great signing.

D league.

Huertas was one of the best international PGs yet in the NBA he was a scrub. I expect the same with Caruso. Enns would have been a better non guaranteed signing. He at least has proven to be solid against legit NBA players.
huertas didnt play american ball. we play differently over here. thats just a fact. caruso knows how it goes in the states.

huertas was an older guy once he got here. probably lost half a step or so too.

caruso was a defender in college, and translated that into the Dleague now the gleague.

He might not be the quickest or strongest/most athletic guy. but he's quick enough and his anticipation on defense is great for a guy trying to time someone's bad pass or funny dribble move so he can poke it loose. this is the kind of guy that could get a game winning steal.

Is it true that he can only play 42-45 games with the Lakers next season, as part of the 2 way contract?

Is he able to be upgraded to a full roster spot at some point?

yes, it automatically converts to full minimum contract once he exceeds 45 days with the regular roster. I could be wrong, but i do not think it is "games". but "days" which is what is counted.

yea, that further confused me. So, for example, if they bring him on the Grammy Trip, that can be a good sign for his future with the club...

I think he can be our Dellavedova. Cavs really missed his hustle this year.

Teodosic is in his prime. My concern is that it might be difficult for him to adapt to the NBA at the age 30. It's just a different game.

Take Sergio Rodriguez, for instance. He had a previous NBA experience and was arguably the 2nd best PG in Europe a couple of seasons ago, behind Teodosic. And he didn't have a big impact.

Teodosic is a gifted passer, a very good shooter, but bad defender. I don't know who said he's a solid defender; he's a defensive liability even in EuroLeague.

Only comp is they are both gifted passers. Buck stops there. Caruso also makes the more sensible pass while Huertas would tend to make the flashy pass that is more apt for a turnover

Except that he starred in high school and in AAU in Dallas, Texas. That's as American as it gets

It doesnt change the fact that these guys are totally different players

Caruso is a big guard who plays pretty good D

Huertes is a speed bump

I did not think he could be an NBA player the first 2 games I watched him but it looks like he could be a player that fit our system. He can shoot, can move the ball, and can defend. Good 2 way contract for us.
