Can Kent Bazemore Fit In?

Bazmore’s fine play in the Warriors’ summer league actually got him signed. Like Anthony Morrow, also an undrafted rookie, Bazemore’s triple-double game proved him to  be quite a lengthy player with some exciting moments.

He also have nine blocks, which beneficial in the defensive area, where the Warriors really need help in. If Bazemore can play in the regular rotation, he may fit in just fine. Assumption, however, can’t be affective. With a partially guaranteed contract, Bazemore will likely make the Warriors’ opening night roster, but that all depends on how he plays in the Training Camp.

With the Warriors adding 5 players to their roster, all non-guaranteed, Bazemore has a little competition for that final spot. If he can go on his blocking sprees, scoring binges, and rebounding as a 6’5 SG, he will be just fine. How can he fit into a role? When the question of Brandon Rush’s return escalated in gravity, Bazemore was signed, hastily. He may prove to be of actual value as a Kevin Durant – like player. (Not as good, obviously).

He only has a couple of roles to play, as an efficient player. He should be able to score about 6 PPG, get 3-4 Assists per game, and 4 rebounds per game. It doens’t seem like much, but the little things pile up.
