"I thought so. Or I was just jumping up and down because I'm retarded." - Sam Mitchell, after he believed a last-second shot (later discounted) had been good.

Trey Lyles
PF, 6’10, 234lbs, 21 years old, 2 years of experience

Lyles's sophomore year was not a good one. The additions of Diaw and Johnson were always going to put a squeeze on his spot in the rotation, yet Lyles still played nearly 1,200 regular season minutes, not all that far short of the amount of his rookie campaign, while the level of play in that time was very much short. Lyles took a lot more shots and missed a lot more shots, especially from three-point range; it is understood that the three-point shot is to be the way he makes his mark in the league, yet the results are not there yet, and nor is he contributing elsewhere. Lyles also shot far worse from two-point range, with a lot of misses inside the paint, rebounding poorly and making no significant mark on defence. His size, length, decent athleticism, handle and vision are a good package theoretically, yet he has done little with them, and in joining a Den-ver team with an equally multi-optioned power forward rotation (especially if Gallinari stays), a turnaround is certainly not automatic.

Player Plan: Two years of rookie scale salary remaining. Not a bad prospect, even if there is no one part of the NBA game he can call his own. And certainly very young. But if Gallinari returns, his role will be further reduced.
