If he cant' get more than 13 minutes, why would he play more for us?

And he's only 20 years old!

He will be a monster soon.

And this is why Danny is reluctant to add bigs this season. While this current core is getting exposed in the playoffs big time, he would provide needs for this team next season. Adding guys like Ibaka or Noel would only steal his development minutes.
I think Danny was reluctant to add anyone during the season because he wants to have to option to offer a max contract this coming summer. I doubt he's worried about a 20-year old's minutes next season.

I agree on both counts, perhaps salary for another max + the arrival of Yabu and Zizic...I'm still making the comparison that Zizic kinda reminds me of Valuciunas
I think that in 2 years Žižić will be a better that JV.
I project him as a good defensive center by then, which Valenciunas, now in his prime, isn't. Žižić has a lower center of gravity, therefore he moves quicker, also just by my eye test his pound of muscle is worth more than JVs pound. He doesn't have that Lithuanian touch gene, (they seem to be draining shots in their minds while still in their mother's bellies), but that can be tightened.
You guys will love him, humble, competitive, hard worker, great frame, and off course he rebounds like he wants to take the air out of a basketball 100 times in a row. All that for a slavers 4-year contract.
Žižić is not JV, no similarities, except that they are white European centers.
The closest comparison IMO is Steven Adams, no-nonsense physical center.
Less dirty (good way dirty), I guess cause Steve played rugby and learned the little annoying tricks there, but Ante adds vertical spacing dimension (plays above the rim more, catches lobs).
Yes - that's why we don't do a quick fix move for a half-done overpaid vet big.

He looks like Anderson Varejeao to me. Not buying the hype on Zizic. He's much slower than people think. Speed doesn't translate overseas typically. Rebounding does however.
They didn't "lose" Teague -- they got rid of him because Schroder made him redundant. Other than that, they replaced Horford with Howard. Injuries or no injuries, our roster is not any more superior than it was last season. Probably less.

Their team is already deep in the playoffs. Blatt opted for more experienced ones.

I'd take my chances with him vs. Robin Lopez.

If Lopez can shoot like he did last night on a consistent basis then I'd take Lopez. He kept Al in check the whole game. Doing the same against Zizic would be a piece of cake.

Zizic have shown flashes of hitting deep 2s. Not to mention he's more agile than Lopez and can cover people in the perimeter. Let's not forget Lopez is turning 30 while Zizic is only 20. Kid can only improve to be better while Lopez may have already reached his peak.

Good competitive game 2. Currently both Žižić and Dončić on the floor Darusafaka leads 34:28. Ante had a beautiful right spin and dunk! Then soon followed it with a half court one hander driving slam. Total of 10 pts and 8 boards ATM.

what type of series is this?
how are their playoffs structured?
Quote from: George W. Bush
Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples while judging ourselves by our best intentions.

1/8 finals. Best of 5. Real leads 1:0.
Now they play 2nd game in a row at home, Madrid.
Then series goes to Istanbul for 2.
4 series winners go to Final four, single game elimination tournament - in Istanbul.

Against the best team in Europe. The kid is impressive.
