   2017 NBA Manifesto

Shawn Long
PF, 6’9, 255lbs, 24 years old, 1 year of experience

His 234 NBA minutes went about as well as they could, with plenty of boards, plenty of points, decent enough efficiency, and stretch intent if not results. There were plenty of fouls and clattering into people along the way, but the fouls are an acceptable by-product of aggression, and while Long may be a marginal NBA talent at this point, he is an NBA talent. Some more skills development, quite a lot of defensive development and an improved understanding of what he should do versus what he shouldn’t do will make for quite the player.

Player Plan: Two years of minimum salary remaining, both unguaranteed. A fringe NBA talent on a team with a depth chart at his position that is very much stacked against him. Can come to camp if he wants, but won’t win a spot if he does, so perhaps should be released and given the chance to latch on somewhere else.
