Thunder GM Sam Presti said he wants Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to be a full-time ball-handler going forward.
Just when you thought the hype train couldn't get any faster, Presti drops this gem. "We're really kind of clearing the way for him to expand his game, to be on the ball full time. We're putting a lot in faith in him and showing him he's a central figure to a lot of things we ultimately want to be." SGA had a massive usage rate of 31.1 without Chris Paul, Danilo Gallinari and Dennis Schroder last season and his per-minute production shot up in those minutes too. Rotoworld is all in on SGA just like last season. Yesterday 4:45 pm (EST)
