Denzel Valentine scored 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting (including 3-of-8 from deep and 5-of-5 from the line) with rebounds, three assists and two steals in Sunday’s semi-final victory over the Cavs.
Valentine just can’t seem to get his shot going in Las Vegas. he still showed off his versatility as he didn’t let his shooting woes affect the rest of his game, contributing across the board. Although his physical tools don’t jump off the page, he is a very intelligent and gifted basketball player that Fred Hoiberg can deploy in multiple lineups and scenarios. Expect his shooting to improve as he gets more comfortable in his new situation, and take a flier on him in the later rounds.
