   2017 NBA Manifesto
2017-06-29

Sam Dekker
SF/PF, 6’9, 230lbs, 23 years old, 2 years of experience

Added some decent depth at the shallowest position on the depth chart, rebounding the ball, finishing around the basket, and rarely turning it over. The spot-ups need work but should develop in due course. The free throw stroke is also poor and the defence unthreatening, but as a heady reserve and occasional small-ball four, Dekker has his uses.

Player Plan: Two years of rookie scale contract remaining. Keep, and actually use him in the playoffs next time.

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers has stated that, in the absence of Blake Griffin, no one player will be assigned the regular starting power forward spot. Still, these two figure to be the most obvious beneficiaries. Harrell already plays a little bit, an energetic athlete, rebounder and dunker who would already have merited more court time if he fitted better with DeAndre Jordan. Dekker, albeit a natural small forward, may be the better fit, a driving, shooting face-up forward who can do a decent impression of a cheap Danilo Gallinari until the real Gallinari returns next month. Taking either is a bit of a risk until we see quite how the new rotation shakes out, but they are very cheap risks with plenty of logic behind them.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
