TORForward: 6’9, 205 lbs; 4th year, Brazil

NBA Role: (raw) scoring forward • UnderDOG 

I’ve lost track at this point but if my math is correct, the ‘Brazilian KD’ is on track to contribute in 2017-18; a sensation waiting to happen?, Bruno can handle and shoot: two necessary skills to survive on the wing; great size at small forward, garden variety at power forward – projects as an outside shooter & defender but needs to bulk up to eventually play small ball 4; what’s his ceiling? Bruno’s actually flying way under the radar at this point, so he won’t be bogged down with crazy expectations (actually joining the rotation is a realistic start); Dwane Casey’s gotta let the young guys loose if TOR wants to improve its depth – is Bruno readier than we think?; great rapport with teammate, and fellow Brazilian, Lucas Nogueira
