outside of showing a bit of weight room workout footage, there was not a single mention of VCU by Bones. In fact from a lot of recent vids and interviews, he has not really mentioned much about his time at VCU. This is in contrast to all the stuff I have heard and seen from Eric, Mo, Troy, Treveon.....and perhaps Larry. Don't want to make a really huge deal out of it but just something I have noticed.
How often does Kawhi Leonard mention SDSU?

I don’t know a lot of names there other than Bones and Bol Bol. Any intel on any of these guys?

The starters off the top of my head. Zeke Nnaji was a first round draft pick after one year at Arizona. Howard went to Marquette (small guard), the rest are euro players I think. Bile played a grad year at Georgetown.

Bench... Semaj Christon went to Xavier. He played against VCU before X went to the Big East.

Howard's a short scoring PG, Nnaji is a super athletic PF they hope make a 3&D stretch 4 (kind of a stretch currently), Agada looks like a camp invitee who played in Israel and has experience with the Nigerian national team, Christon is a former A-10 ROY from X who plays like 2 but needs to be a 1. Nobody else rings a bell.

Bones's main competition for minutes should be Howard, Agada, and Christon. He ought to get more burn automatically by virtue of being a first-rounder, but against that group I'd like his chances regardless. He may play with one of them so Denver can get a look at him off the ball, but their goal will ultimately be to convert him to a full time scoring PG (which I don't think will be nearly as much a process as national projections - expect you agree).

With Joker playing a bit of a PG role, I’m not sure if they want anyone else to be a true PG. They need shooters to play off if him.
