   2017 NBA Manifesto

Brandon Bass
PF, 6’8, 250lbs, 32 years old, 12 years of experience

Always a bit superfluous with Speights on board, Bass had a mixed year. As always, he got shots up when he was in the game; mid-range twos, some drives, some pick-and-rolls, the occasional big dunk. His offensive rating of 125, his PER of 19.7 and his true shooting percentage of .650% speak to his effectiveness there. But in the concept of the team at large, Bass was an awkward fit. He lacked the floor spacing of Speights, defended the rim no better than he did, is exposable on perimeter defence and rebounds poorly on both ends. Hustle and shot-making gives him some value, and he has rotation talent, but as his age creeps up and the NBA evolves away from players of his type, he should only be brought back if he is cheap.

Player Plan: Expiring minimum salary. Would retain for the minimum, but this is unlikely, and Brice Johnson should receive the minutes instead.
