Brown reportedly played very very well. Dez and T are beasts.

Brown was impressive in both scrimmages. They're just scrimmages, but there's definitely cause for excitement.

Still a fair deal to clean up, and the interior defense is probably going to be a concern all season, but Brown has a great opportunity to take that step forward from being able to surprise good teams to being able to more consistently play with good teams and beat bad teams. That's always been the missing ingredient in a top four finish.

Agreed that is their issue. T Choh is the wild card on interior (defense, offense) and his growth has wowed us all. He's never going to be big, but he plays pretty big, and uses his agility going against other less-athletic 4s. DeWolf remains a big body with pretty good motor, and you hope he can defend a little better this year and continue to rebound. Howard is still there, but I sense Fuller is still on the outside looking in, and that Gainey will not get minutes just yet.

But with a lineup that has Cambridge, Anderson and now Choh, there's a lot of potential volatility in any given game, and if you get any two of them clicking offensively in the same game, they can beat anyone on a given night.

Looks like Okolie may be the starter over Hunsaker to start the season, but I expect the latter to still get big minutes.
