I mean the whole point of us trading for him was in the hope that a fresh start would kind of be just that? Him restarting his career as basically a 23 year old rookie with some experience to boot.
I still don't agree with the decision to pass on fields but we at least have to see how he does on the field before outright calling it a failure
I avoided this subject and was in the wait and see mode.. but when he showed up on Graham's IG feed - I started giving it some thought..
now that it seems he will be on the preseason roster (and eventual reg season roster) - I started looking to see if he can be an actual contributor.. can he be better than a Martin twin? maybe.. i don't know.. but I tend to come at this topic with the expectation that Gelo will not be a big-time contributor and at best = a microwave off the bench (the Monk role)..
with that said, I look a Giannis and his brother Thanasis getting a contract on the Bucks - but really providing nothing other than 6 fouls..
So if giving a few $$ to a star's family member keep the star in your small market team - then that's something you gotta do.. but Thanasis seems to accept his role as end of the bench guy - I hope Gelo would accept that if things don't pan out and he has to take a backseat to his younger bro..
