THT a monty to re-sign, IMO. No way we let him go

His ceiling is still huge, has improved as the season has gone on. Excited to see his development continue over the next few seasons

He is no where near ready as a playmaker for the postseason. I don’t think he deserves the leash he gets. If he’s not playing wel you gotta start pulling him. We can’t afford the constant turnovers or his inability to look for the open man.

He’s just nowhere near ready and he’s quite careless in his play style.

I'm a big THT fan. But I think he's at least 2 years away from being a starter quality player. Too many defense lapses (teams are hunting him now), lack of 3 point shooting, and a bit too risky passing wise.

Still believe in him but we need to bring him up carefully.

He looked tired last night. Ish Smith and others were bothering him.

Usually his handles are awesome, but last night he looked like Caruso trying to create lol.

To be frank I've expected this, only the extremely rare NBA 20 year-old (Kobe/Luka) will dominate day in and day out. I'm glass half full, one more off-season and I'll give high odds that he comes back blazing.

Except in the last game where he led an 11-0 run with 2 assists for 3s and was 3/3 from the field in the 2nd? He is exactly what will need in the post season to wake asses up after we are down after the slow starts we have had ALL season.

Very unstable, but hell of a talent. Loved that he got that play in to seal the game. He is a load off the dribble.

I think I rather have Dennis in his role (THTs) and have Caruso start. I like the mix of having a cutter and spot up 3 baller around AD-AD2-Bron. And then a real veteran like Dennis as the attacker on the 2nd unit. THT is still a little green for this role.

Caruso should never start...he can't create...at...all against starting players .he can barely make an entry pass.
