"I didn't know he was the captain. But, since you said it...I really didn't notice it I guess." - JaVale McGee when asked about John Wall's performance as captain

   2017 NBA Manifesto
2017-06-29

Axel Toupane
SG/SF, 6’7, 210lbs, 24 years old, 2 years of experience

Toupane had contracts with three NBA teams last season after briefly cracking the league in 2015/16, which speaks to how close to the cusp he is. He had a reasonably good shooting in the D-League with the Raptors 905, scoring 16 points per game but mostly making his mark via his defensive versatility, able to defend both wings and bigger forwards. If he can add a better three-point shot to go with that, he’d fit the template and stick around in this league.

Player Plan: One year of unguaranteed minimum salary contract remaining. Give him summer league to prove himself; even then, though, does he need to be fully guaranteed?
