2019 Award Winner
Being in LA and having a regrettable number of friends who are Lakers fans, I've watched a fair amount of Caruso lately. I think it's pretty clear that the game is slowing down for him. I really like how he has his head up and finds his own rhythm.
Every time I have watched him, including summer league last year, he has stood out. He's confident and seems like a pretty intelligent player... or maybe he has good instincts. High steal rate and the guy plays his *** off. Love guys that are on the NBA fringe and fight their way to a spot. Seems to run the team pretty well. Then he makes an explosive play or two that make you think there is something more there.
I'm comfortable saying I think he's a solid NBA backup... and think there might be more there in the right system with the right development staff. Good bargain option for us I think.
