Luka Samanic: 15 points, 9 rebounds
Luka, I’m sorry. Between Poeltl, Collins, Landale, Eubanks, and Thaddeus Young, I just don’t see you getting a lot of playing time this year. I’m afraid the age of Luka is coming to a close as the Spurs seem to have moved on to other guys.
15 points and nine rebounds would be an excellent average, but unfortunately, I think this is by far the best game he’ll have all season. He isn’t a floor spacer or an elite defender. I hope he proves me wrong.
Devin Vassell: 21 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals, 2 blocks
Well, I was overly negative so now it’s time to switch that up. While I fully believe Devin Vassell will score more than 30 points at least once this season, this well-rounded game is by far the better performance.
We all know Vassell can shoot, defend, jump, and outreach any other wing. There’s no reason he can’t put it all together for one showcase as to why he’s the most underrated player in his draft class.
Lonnie Walker IV: 38 points, 7 rebounds, 2 posters
Lonnie Walker took his game to new heights last year, so why can’t he do it again this season? He is probably the Spur with the most potential in terms of scoring from anywhere. He can dunk and shoot from mid-range and deep.
I fully expect him to score 25 points through three quarters and put the team on his back in a close game, scoring 13 in the final 12 minutes, punctuating it with some thunderous dunks on anyone foolish enough to get in his way. Will this happen often? Nope, but he’ll be a great contributor all year round who often is the most electrifying player on the court.
