The Grizzlies intend to find ways to get Bruno Caboclo minutes at center this upcoming season.
Grizzlies head coach Taylor Jenkins is embracing the versatility on his roster, spereating his team into two catagories: bigs and smalls. Falling into the "bigs" box, Caboclo is expected to take on several bigman oriented tasks, namely, using his length and athleticism to protect the paint. He flashed an intriguing fantasy game during the final month of last season, averaging 11 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.9 3-pointers and a block in 27 minutes per game in that span. It's unlikely Caboclo will see minutes like that this season. However, if he can turn in reliable back up center minutes in addition to his role on the wing, it's possible he could creep up into the mid-20's, making him an appealing deep-league option.
