- Fully expect John Wall to sign his extension this offseason. Whether it’s similar to Westbrook’s max extension or a Holiday/Curry/Lawson near max remains to be seen. Either way, Wall is going to get his money.
- Anticipate increased production from Beal in all categories similar to Klay Thompson who rose from 12.5 points per-game in his rookie season to 16.6 points per-game in his sophomore season.
- Given he’s in a contract year, Okafor should continue his consistent play hovering around a double/double. Fans point out that Okafor had his worst year statistically, but alike every player on the roster, he’s much improved with a healthy Wall (not to mention compensate his slow start to acclimating to a new surrounding and offense). In addition, with the center position becoming less valuable, a center that can play good defense and give you a double/double is extremely valuable when you don’t have one the top echelon centers.
- Nene will miss his fair share of games but expect less DNPs with no international participation for Brazil this offseason. His numbers will never resemble what they were in Denver in his contract year (14.5ppg/7.6rpg/62FG%) but his worth will be evaluated in the number of ‘healthy’ games he plays.
