   2017 NBA Manifesto

Raul Neto
PG, 6’1, 179lbs, 25 years old, 2 years of experience

Not a particularly good sophomore year for Neto, who lost his place in the starting line-up, then the rotation in general, and who was seemingly limited to bringing the ball up and camping outside the three-point line, driving when the seas part, rather than making anything happen. This is not how he made his name, and nor is it what he is best at, but the aggressiveness is not there at the NBA level. Defensively, maybe; despite not being the quickest or the longest, Neto moves his feet and tries to stay in front, an aggressive nuisance when called upon. But offensively, he is being careful not creative, and the direct by-product of that is that he is just not doing much.

Player Plan: Has an unguaranteed minimum salary contract for next year, final year. Worth keeping around on it, but not looking like a rotation player, which feels odd to say about a player only one year removed from being a 53 game starter.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 25th November 2017

One-time starter Neto has taken a back seat over the past year and a bit, but is currently in one of the better mini-stretches of his NBA career. Back in the rotation due to the usual myriad of injuries elsewhere, Neto has posted fantasy point outings of 20, 26.9 and 32.1 in his last four games, all for essentially the minimum price. The fourth game was a complete goose egg of a 1.5 outing, but notwithstanding the risk of that happening again, Neto has value.
