Derrick White: 30 points, 7 assists, 3 blocks, 2 steals
A healthy Derrick White might be the best player on this talented team. If he stays healthy, he could again be one of the best shot-blocking guards in the league, a talented scorer, and a gifted passer.
Put all of those together and you have a defensive showcase combined with a career-high in points. He also plays very unselfishly, so when the double teams come, he can easily pass out of them to the open man for some easy, stat-padding assists.
Joe Wieskamp: 15 points, 5/5 from three
Joe Wieskamp might not even play in San Antonio at all this year. It wouldn’t be a bad thing to hone his talents in Austin for several months. If he gets playing time, I expect him to be a deadeye shooter who simply can’t miss from day one. He won’t see the court a lot, but when he does he’ll be deemed a baby Klay Thompson.
Thaddeus Young: 20 points, 10 rebounds, 2 steals
A 20-point double-double would certainly be the highlight of my season if I were on an NBA team. At 32, Thaddeus Young is still in his prime and can wreak havoc and ruin schemes on either side of the court. On defense, he’s incredibly underrated. On offense, he’s a viable second option and excellent third option.
If he gets comfortable shooting from deep again, his numbers could be even better, but at this point, it’s time to be realistic and be happy with a 20-piece.
