• Kenny Atkinson didn’t commit to handing minutes over to new acquisitions Jahlil Okafor and Nik Stauskas and told Sarah Todd of the Philadelphia Inquirer that neither is a lock to play tonight.

    Both players will have to earn their minutes here, though that’s probably closer to lip service than it is for the other guys on the roster. It’s also not a super tall task given Atkinson’s propensity for 12 or 13-man rotations, but running so many different players caps everyone’s upside. Okafor can be a low-end big and is worth a speculative add but don’t be afraid to cut bait quickly if the minutes don’t materialize. Stauskas joins an incredibly deep wing group in Brooklyn and can be left on the wire for now, as he’d be just a 3-point specialist in a best case scenario.
