tl;dr Posted April 11, 2019 Share Posted April 11, 2019 (edited) So overall I think this past year was a success despite the 29-53 record in year 1 for Pierce. The young guys played well for the most part and we were able to get guys like Len to play well in our system. Excited to see where next year takes us. We competed in a lot of games we lost too. As the year went along, we played better which is a very good sign. Trae Young averaged 19.1 PPG and 8.1 APG. His 3 ball was only around 33%, but he was up to around 35% after the all star break. That number is only going to get better IMO. Post ASG, he averaged 24.7 and 9.2 APG. He was 2nd in the NBA in assists and 5th in APG. John Collins averaged 19.5 PPG and 9.8 RPG. For a sophomore year player? Yeah, we've got us a star on our hands. Kevin Huerter averaged 10.5 PPG post ASG which is good too. He is only going to get better and get more comfortable. There were also positives to take away from a lot of over guys: Alex Len, Taurean Prince, Omari Spellman, and even Bembry showed progress (still mad about tonight though lol). We have a nice young core that is only going to get better. Some key offseason dates: April 21st: Final day for underclassmen to declare for the NBA draft May 14th: NBA draft lottery May 14th-9th: NBA Draft Combine May 29th: Final day for underclassmen to withdraw from the NBA draft June 10th: Final day for non-NCAA players to withdraw from the NBA draft June 20th: NBA draft July 1st: Free agency begins, but players can't sign yet Draft picks: 1(5)- ATL pick; 5th slot in lottery 1(7)- DAL pick; T-7th slot in lottery, top 5 protected 2(35)- ATL pick2(41)- ATL pick 2(42)- ATL pick Edited April 11, 2019 by tl;dr jayu70 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
