Seeing that we're halfway through the season now, I think it's time for us to give the team a bit of a midseason review!

The Starters

PG - D'Angelo Russell - B

This year isn't really a season for a "breakout year" for anyone while everyone learns a new system. Especially for a player that is supposed to learn to run the offense. Luckily, having Luke as a coach made the transition a little easier. I think D'Angelo is developing, and that's all we can ask for right now. He limped out the gate, literally, and wasn't quite himself the first quarter of the season. He's not shooting as efficiently as he did last year, but he's picking it up the last few games as he's beginning to look a lot more comfortable running the offense. He still shows signs of his age, poor turnovers and odd decision making, and still needs to pick up the effort on the defensive end. But what's encouraging is that he's starting to understand his role and that he's a multi-skilled guard...

Yeah, I know a little early you might say; it is, admittedly. Either way, I don't prefer going after RFA's, but one player that I'd like to make an offer to is:

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. I think Detroit matches, but what the heck? He's got good size, very capable offensively, and an above average defender.

Thoughts? Mention other names that might help us, etc.
