Delon Wright 2019-2020 Outlook

Recommended Posts

I don't know what it is with Carlisle and not playing Wright. I would be interested in what Carlisle would do if Barea and Brunson went down.

Knowing him, he'd try to petition a trade to get Dennis Smith Jr back.

Carlisle runs one of the worst rotations in the league. Reminds me of Pop, the way he is often times stubborn with line ups and players that are clearly not the best option. My guess is Delon isn’t a great shooter, so he’d rather have someone to spread the floor and chuck up shots.

He would beg Jason Kidd to come out of retirement

He's shooting over 50% on the season though 🤔

Does he get into the high twenties in minutes with Hardaway Jr out?

Probably not. They'll probably play seth more for the shooting.

How is Carlisle gonna start Brunson in front of Curry and Wright? This dude is insane. Delon should request a trade like Dedmon did.

How can I hold when Carlisle only gives Wright 6 min!? Carlisle hates Delon with all his soul.

Delon kinda complained about not starting the other day and then starts the next game lol

Highly doubt Rick operates that way but w a back to back coming up I’m picking him up to see if this sticks

Seeing rumors about Covington being traded to Dallas. You would have to assume Delon gets included in that package back to Minnesota. If that happened I would race to the wire so fast. This guy just needs a starting role as PG anywhere an he’ll succeed. Sucks to see that he’s not working out in Dallas, it’s hard to be productive when you have a superstar in Luka there. I hate that I had to drop him, still love his game fantasy wise though.

Was just mulling over the chances of Delon at Fargoland one day. That'd be gold.

As for the Mavs, it's one thing having to share a backcourt with Doncic, but at points in the season Barea and Courtney Lee have been preferred to him, which is quite something.

Is there any clear reason for Carrey giving him absolute poverty minutes?

He's not white, look at the starting lineup sans THJ 😎

Good game, anyone grabbing?

 

Grabbed him in my 12T. Only a little worried about how much WCS will eat up in terms of the minutes distribution but worth having for the 4 game week.

WCS sucks at basketball.

Dropped Dejaunte for Delon.

So after I drop him when he produced a whopping 4 fantasy points, he's been snapped up and rewarded his new owner with 20, 25, 32. Ugh.

For those who've watched Mavs recently, any reason he has racked up boards but not assists? Sharing the court with Luka or some other reason?

Mavs fan here.  Watched the game and man, Delon was everywhere, really aggressive.  I grabbed him just for the 4 gamer week.

For ROS purposes, even non-Mavs fans know that Carlisle is really random with his rotations and is more than happy to mix things up. With the addition of WCS potentially allowing Coach Rick to go big, it is indeed a little worrisome.  However, the Mavs are much better going small with Zingis at C (as long as he doesn't face too many bruisers) and Kleber backing up both PF/C. Hopefully for Delon owners, WCS takes more minutes from someone like DFS and THJ or Luka plays more SF.

Delon's sweet spot is probably around 25 mpg, since he plays both PG/SG; likely his main competition for minutes is Seth, since I doubt the Mavs ever do something like Luka/Wright/THJ/DFS/Zingis to start.  Problem is that the Mavs are stuck with a huge glut of small guards - Brunson, Seth, Wright, THJ, and even Coach Rick's favorite, JJB, and Coach Rick is not shy from moving away from any of them.  For fantasy purposes, it's ugly, but I can see Delon getting minutes for his defense and energy over Seth and Brunson.  Wouldn't expect all the OREBs he's getting, but I also expect him to grab more steals, so I could see a 10/4/3.5 line with solid %s and low TOs, maybe 0.7 treys and 1.3 steals on 25 mpg?
