Jusuf Nurkic scored 14 points on 7-of-17 shooting with a season-high 20 rebounds and two steals in Tuesday’s win over the trade depleted Clippers.
Nurkic still hasn’t rehabbed his season-long value (top 100-150, 8/9 cat) but he has been a solid mid-round value over the last month, giving hope for the future. We’ve spent a lot of time around here talking about whether owners should sell high during these stretches, and the answer to that question is only yes if you can get a top-80ish player in return. Otherwise the hope will be that he can keep improving and threaten the top-50.
