Denzel Valentine was disappointingly quiet in Friday’s preseason finale, shooting 2-of-6 on his way to five points, two rebounds and one assist.
It’s been a preseason to forget for Valentine, who had hoped that a healthy summer would parlay into the starting two guard job. His draft pedigree couldn’t stop him from Justin Holiday’s incredible run, however, and it’s tough to argue that Valentine should start from any perspective at this point. His sleeper appeal faded quickly.
