Lauri Markkanen hit just 1-of-9 shots for three points and seven boards over 24 minutes in Wednesday’s blowout loss to the Jazz.
Markkanen did not have any money counters and this should be a reminder that rookies with early success often have a hard time keeping it up if they’re not elite talents. Factor in the return of Nikola Mirotic and there have been several sell high moments in the past weeks. He has top-75 value on the season so far and if he can put up another good night it will be a savvy play to try and move him for that type of value in return.
