   2017 NBA Manifesto

Larry Nance Jr
SF/PF, 6’9, 230lbs, 24 years old, 2 years of experience

Nance is already a good role player. He is athletic, knows what to do with it, and knows what not to force with it. He cuts and runs to the basket, tries to dunk everything, often manages it, goes to the glass, and defends the power forward spot well with his size and speed combination, able to switch onto certain threes and fives at times. The mid-range jump shot has also improved (43.5% from 16-24 feet this season), and the three-point shot is likely to follow. Nance rotates well, plays hard, and should not go anywhere any time soon. The core the team wants will need players like this around it.

Player Plan: Two years of rookie scale salary remaining. Keep and establish extension credentials next year - should he enter restricted free agency instead, his cap hold will be comparatively small.

The ever-improving Nance always has energy and athleticism to give, and always yields some form of result for it.

Although he scored only 5 points in his last outing, his 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and 1 block made for yet another strong fantasy night overall – with his running mate at forward Kyle Kuzma likely to play but hobbled tonight, Nance might get another big run out, and will produce a good amount of fantasy points like he always does.

Whereas Kuzma and others want to score, Nance does the rest, averaging 7.8 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 0.8 blocks per game. While he is not getting many touches or designed plays with which to do it, he is getting his own as well, recording a 13.0 point per game average on the season thus far. Nance has started every game of the season thus far and has thrived in the role; there is therefore no reason to believe he will lose it, thus making him a cheap and productive starter.
