   2017 NBA Manifesto

Willy Hernangomez
C, 6’11, 240lbs, 23 years old, 1 year of experience

In a healthy 1,324 minutes of his rookie season, Hernangomez proved himself to be a very good rebounder at the NBA level (especially offensively), as well as showing touch and feel offensively (high number of turnovers notwithstanding). Hernangomez is spry and clearly well-raised in basketball, knowing when to pass and when to try and score, and being good at both, with stretch potential if not much success yet save for some foul-line shots. Defensively, however, there is a fair amount to be concerned by, and not a whole lot to project; neither a rim protector not likely to be one able to do much to disrupt perimeter action, Hernango-mez compounded this problem by often not seeming to know where to go. Work to do, then.

Player Plan: Has a slightly above the minimum salary guaranteed for next year, then a guaranteed year at the minimum, and a fourth unguaranteed year. Worth keeping throughout, and perhaps dealable down the road when his future talent level is better established and his pairing (or lack of it) with Porzingis fully explored.
