If he can make good use of this full camp, show that he fits well with what Casey wants to do on offense, and continue to exhibit his excellent defensive extincts while playing with a bit more consistent energy and discipline, he could have something of a breakout year. And i pretty much expect that.

I could see this guy being the best fit of all the power forwards in the long run, if they want to play up and down, and can get a top notch small forward. People who think he's as good as gone need to wait a moment, take a deep breath, watch him some more, and re-assess.
I can't see him getting the minutes he got last season unless Bargs completely sucks or gets injured again. Especially with Valanciunas now in the mix. I guess a lot also depends on Amir.
