NBA Role: (raw) forward prospect UnderDOG

The Dallas Mavs are finally going w/ somewhat of a youth movement (by their standards, anyway) – Argentina’s Nicolas Brussino has upside as a hybrid scorer under Rick Carlisle; good shooter at 6’8: Brussino still needs to adjust to the NBA line but features a shot form that suggests success after more reps; good rebounder, has a nose for the ball; slender frame at only 215 – will spend his rookie season studying film, working in practice & living in the weight room (most likely); Coach Carlisle isn’t prone to handing out spots, especially to rooks – how long* til Brussino finds his footing in the league?
