Agree on both points


Even Badocchi got more discussion than Devon Hall.

DBR is going to naturally view teams as bags of talent and try to identify the shiny pieces in each teams bag, whether or not those players are actually going to contribute to wins night in and night out.

My current prediction is that Hall will be our leading scorer and co-minutes leader with Jerome. I do not see a lid on their minutes (or for Wilkins other than fatigue) as they will fit in any lineup (both for offense and defense) and against almost any matchup. Those three are the solid base to which less versatile but also high-value parts can be attached based on opponent and game situation. Jerome really finished last season strong on both sides of the ball and I think is ready to inherit Perrantes minutes.

Guy, Diakite and Huff will all get more attention because they have some exciting peak attributes, but all have lids on their minutes because they are not yet all-around players and it is easier and productive for opponents to game plan against each of them to exploit their weaker points.

Game planning against Wilkins, Hall and (hopefully) Jerome will be less useful because of their versatility. They are not out there to do one or two things really well with obvious weakness in other areas to attack and it is hard to put out an opposing lineup that makes any of them a liability.
