A couple articles here that you may want to read... I took the liberty of posting some snippets.

who is taking note? Casey and Derozan? He's slow-footed, focused heavily on offense, doesn't move particularly well without the ball, gets much of his scoring off of isos.... but yes, people have noticed. Casey is talking up his player, means very little. Let's see Casey get him to defend, given that it is his supposed strength.

I'll go read those though.... but from the snippets, I've read nothing I haven't heard before. He does look more confident though, ever-building too, given the green light he's been given his entire career.

I just don't think we should be afraid to move a player that has a strong chance to not live up to the big deal we gave him. If potential is what we're hyping, let's sell on that note too.

If we're afraid of him becoming an all-star, we may be fearful for years to come.
