Davis Bertans
PF, 6’10, 210lbs, 24 years old, 1 year of experience

Managed 808 regular season minutes, 113 playoff ones, and spent only four games on assignment. In that time, he showed pretty much the same package as in his prior Euroleague career prior; an unblockable shot, good shooting from the corners and straight-on, no post-up play, cuts rather than drives, no mid-range action, a spindly frame, better than it looks as though he should have shotblocking timing, and absolutely terrible rebounding numbers.
