    I think there’s room to give him a few minutes off the bench at C. It is absolutely worth finding out if he can shoot threes and play defense in the real NBA, because we lack both big time. All we’d have to do is sit Brewer and slide Kuz to SF, Randle to PF, and there’s his spot for 5 mins or whatever. We did it with Bogut, we could do it with Bryant. He’s raw, so it’s hard to tell if he’s an NBA player or not, but we can’t be much worse than we are right now, so why not.

    Kid looks like he has good hands and vision. Looked comfortable and confident out there.

    Defensively, I'm not sure where he's at, but his size, length, mobility, and energy is something I think we could us at the backup C.

    His outside shooting is what is intriguing me most offensively.

    I’m ready to ditch all Veterans and go full youth movement. Play Zu and Bryant.

    Find a good young back up PG

    Everything else can be pretty much covered.

    I don’t see a future for our vets on this roster. They are all trying out for their next contract elsewhere.

    Such a good player. Great potential, and he would fit with our team nicely.

    Agree karacha .... love this kid! Wait till he fills out and buffs up. Sweet and fast release on that shot as mentioned by Weezy above. Really a nice stroke. Up there maybe in Kuz territory? Another great late pic. Would be beyond super if Zubac could step the hell up and look like our future again with Bryant and Randle for awesome backup at the 5 and small ball lineups. With Julius's other minutes at PF.

    Was just thinking that after watching again in that clip his length and coordination and soft hands and great Kuzma like stroke on his Js. And he has great energy. Going to be a great backup big or even starter at times in the future for us.

    He hasn’t gotten a run on the team yet because he’s a project, but I really really like TB. I think he might develop into a starter some day because he has a lot of the tools. I’m more concerned with his defense than offense though.

    I just want to take the time to develop him and not move him as an add on to a trade.

    It already looks better than the threes he was taking in Summer League. Quicker and smoother release. I'd have to look, but it also looks like he's getting a little better arch on it.
