Interesting, i forgot that Caruso is still signed to a two-way contract. So looks like our 2 spots are now filled.

Couldnt have chosen better based on the available options than Newman IMO.

He isn't a PG tho. Need a playmaker on the floor with him. If he can guard PGs he will stick

I'm a big Kansas fan and watched Malik a lot. He progressed slowly this year but in the last two months he was excellent. I think that he is worth taking a small risk on. He is a very good defender and plays smart. He wasn't a tremendous shooter until the end of the year last year but has good form. I like him because he plays hard.

No he’s not a “PG” but he will likely guard point guards.

He’s a scorer and shooter so someone else will handle Point Guard duties on offense.
