Nikola Mirotic scored 17 points with five treys in just 19 minutes against the Sixers on Monday.
Mirotic’s minutes and role are shaky right now but he has enough upside to just roll with it. He needed to average closer to 28 mpg to get the mid-round upside we were pitching this preseason and right now he’s at 23.6 per game, hence the value outside of the top-100. It’s hard to see all of his teammates staying healthy this season — and in the meantime he’ll be incentivized to play defense with some time on the pine.
