Kent Bazemore
SG, 6’5, 201lbs, 27 years old, 5 years of experience

Now that he is very pricy, with a circa $18.1 million per annual cost over the next three years, it should follow that he develops into a more all-around, impactful player going forward. But he doesn’t have the talent to do so. Bazemore has some talent, yet it is that of an irritating defender, transition player, corner three-point shooter and occasional slasher benefitting from ball movement and good spacing, not that of a focal point. He just does not have the ball skills, poise or ability to make shots off the dribble to be so. It is simply a bad contract, one prohibitive to the medium and long term planning of the team, and one that should be moved if possible.

Player Plan: Three years and $54,269,662 remaining. Final year is a player option it should be assumed he will exercise. Look to move, as this contract is an obstacle to the fu-ture barring improvements to his own game that he does not seem likely to make.

Golden State - Kent Bazemore: Bazemore struggled early in the season, taking shots he couldn't make, proving he couldn't hit them, and showing no ability to even bring the ball up against pressure. However, when reverting to his usual disruptive athletic defensive and full court presence, Bazemore has been occasionally effective, and still has a place on a competitive team.

ODU are led by 6'5 guard Kent Bazemore, the CAA's defensive player of the year, who is a seriously improved player. Formerly a defensive specialist with questionable offensive skills other than a decent pull-up long two point jumpshot, Bazemore has shown considerable offensive improvements, and now, with the departure of Gerald Lee, has become a primary playmaker. Bazemore is second on the team in scoring at 12.5 points per game, is third in steals (2.9apg), and the only reason his 5.0 rebounds ranks a mere fourth on the team is because of just how good of a rebounding team ODU are. Bazemore is athletic, confident, energetic, lefty and smiley, who has considerably improved his handle, three point shot (now up to 37%) and offensive efficiency. He does some of everything for his team, not least of which is his fine perimeter defense, where his good hands and great effort see him average 2.3 steals per game. Maybe one day, he'll hit his free throws.
