Raptors coach Dwayne Casey impressed with Bruno Caboclo's debut
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(11/22/14) Raptors forward Bruno Caboclo made his season debut during Friday's 124-83 win over Milwaukee. With the game well in hand, Caboclo checked into the game at the start of the fourth quarter and played the final 12 minutes of the game. He finished with eight points on 3 of 6 shooting from the field, including 2 of 3 from behind the arc. He added one rebound and one block.
Following the game, coach Dwayne Casey told reporters he was impressed with the Brazilian's shot selection, per the National Post.
"Lack of fear? Is that what you call it? There's nothing wrong with being naive sometimes," Casey said. "He's not afraid. That's one thing about Bruno: He's not afraid of anything. He's a tough kid. He's a tough kid. He reminds me so much of Rashard Lewis. Rashard gives you that nicey-nice look, but he's a tough kid. Bruno is, too. That's what you like about him."
|When you make your first-round pick, the sound you are generally looking for is rapturous applause. When the Raptors took Bruno Caboclo 20th overall last June, the collective response was a resounding, "Who?" Caboclo was on exactly nobody's radar pre-draft, as he spent last season playing on a low-level team in Brazil. The 19-year-old is not expected to see much of the floor this season, instead likely spending most of the season in the D-League or on the bench learning. Given his lack of track record, it is hard to know exactly what to expect from him, so it would be a risk to use anything more than a late-round pick on Caboclo in a dynasty/keeper league.
