    Christopher 1st game:
    15 points, 11 assists, 7 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block in 29 minutes

    Garuba 3 game average:
    12.3 points, 1.7 assists, 11.7 rebounds, 2.7 steals, 1.3 blocks

    Brilliant. Obvious big fish/small pond scenario which is exactly what we should want but it still feels good to see the kids develop with playing time. Would take these numbers from them in the pros in a heartbeat too lol

    "Future 5"

    Porter, Green, Christopher, Garuba, Sengun looking on schedule man.

    Christopher's 360 degree layup was a thing of beauty. JC and Garuba are both loaded with potential. I think the G-league will be good for them to get some minutes and reps.

    I bet they'll do awesome when they get called back up :D

    I wonder what we do with Trevelin Queen. He's one of the top scorers in the G League while shooting over 40% from 3 point range. 6'6", versatile, and productive offensively. My hope this season is that we sell of our vets at the trade deadline for the best available offers (House, Gordon, Augustin, Theis) so that our existing young players get more minutes (Garuba and Christopher ideally in the regular rotation) while someone like Queen hopefully gets a shot, maybe as an end of bench guy who sees the court during blowouts or if someone gets hurt he's able to fill a void.

    I Really liked Queen last year .... thought he should have gotten one of the two way's last year (instead of Lamb).


    I think they'll move House & maybe EG but asking them to move Theis is a bit much in the first year of his deal.

    Augustin .... maybe but how bad do we want to be ? 2-16 and everyone wants Silas taken out back , given a blindfold and a cigarette and shot. Augustin's been fairly effective in getting the 2nd unit into their sets.

    I just can't see them moving all of their veterans ..... gotta have someone to guide these kids along.

    Christopher is always going to compete with Augustin for minutes. He's not the future PG in this team, and Christopher needs the reps to show what he can do.

    And I don't think it's too early on Theis. Teams needing a C at the deadline would be good candidates for a trade here.

    Garuba spoke Spanish? Josh was too busy with his shorts? I’m not surprised, Josh looks like he got dropped on his head as a kid.

    I liked this guy coming into the league, good size shooting and athleticism, though not a true PG (just like KPJ.) Where’s the room for him though that’s the question.

    We’ve got a ton of combo guards and no PGs

    He's another one to keep an eye on for sure, he can flat out score. I think Gordon has a legit chance of being moved this year, his last contractual season is non-guaranteed so it makes a lot of sense to pick up a veteran like him for a playoff push/extra season in the eyes of a contender. He's the only veteran I can see having a market elsewhere except Christian Wood.

    And it wouldn't surprise me if Patrick Fertitta drafts Jaden Hardy

    Team full of ball handlers......shooting 30% from 3

    No story, JC apologized with laughing emojis on his IG. It was in his stories so It’s gone now, but it was there.

    I wish I could take the G-League seriously, but I just can’t

    Well, playing along with the ClutchFans "make up a story and run with it" theme : Christopher is still pissed at Garuba for stealing his woman and wants no part of handshakes, fistbumps, or slaps. Sources : "Nah, dude, we dun."
