This is tough because I'm not sure how much better Tre or TJ could get than how they looked, that is they have less room to improve if that makes sense.

I went with Dibaji and Kolton. I think Dibaji has the highest non-Tre ceiling on the team and Kolton was a flat out zero offensively, which I contribute a lot to health so just being healthy alone I think makes him a lot better.

You make a really good point about their ceilings. How much better can they get? Will they plateau like Carl Pierre? IDK, even Carl adds aspects to his game over time. I'm expecting the team to click better next year and, as a result, those two will improve - particularly on D.

I also like Dibaji and Santos.

You have a day to change your vote or add a second choice if you didn't notice you can pick 2.

I'm really interested to see what people think. Plus I am bored do to isolation, as you can tell by my frequent posting.

I only selected 1... it says pick up to 2 so you don't have to vote for 2. But that was also long after your post. 41 total now :wink:

I picked Walker. He showed a lot of potential and I think he is going to take the biggest jump this year. And that's not to say others won't improve, but I think we're going to be very pleasantly surprised with what Walker brings to the table.

Dibaji and East in the lead. Very interesting. That would be GREAT

If Preston can stay on the floor he can make a very big jump. Brings energy, defense, and can finish around the hoop. If he can lay off the cheap fouls he can be one of the most complete players on the team.

Idk, I hadn't made a poll in a long time and set it for one day. I should have given it longer. So I guess we will have small sample estimate.

I think Walker and East are leading because those 2 and Tre improved most during the course of this season, but Tre is so advanced it's hard to see him making huge improvements. He had 58 points in the last 2 games, shooting 69% on 3s; can anyone improve on that?

I went with Kolton because his offense is sure to improve. I thought he was good on offense in high school and can't believe he'll shoot 29% on FTs again next season (and he drives well enough to draw fouls). OTOH, it's really the threat of hitting 3s that the team needs to keep defenders off Tre and others, and if Kolton can't hit some 3s he might not get many minutes.

The point Insider makes about Preston (avoid cheap fouls) is good enough to pick him.

^ Kind of shocking to me that the guy who seemed to make the biggest improvement from the beginning to end of this past season garnered almost none of the vote (Tre Mitchell). Maybe everyone thinks he's already so good that it would be hard to improve too much more?
