Report: Vegas a building block for Caboclo

The 2015 Las Vegas Summer League has concluded and young forward Bruno Caboclo showed Toronto Raptors GM Masai Ujiri that he has improved since last year when he was the 20th pick in the 2014 NBA draft. From Donnovan Bennett of Sportsnet.ca:

    "The plan for Caboclo has been laid out and it’s one he loves. He will play with 905 at home, and for the most part join the Raptors while they’re in Toronto. 'I think it will be good for me,' he says. Caboclo could be the NBA’s first truly bespoke superstar, tailor-made to the liking of the man who put his neck out to draft him. Yet the numbers that will determine his success won’t just be the 6-foot-9 body that carries with it a 7-foot-2 wingspan. Next season, while donning a Raptors 905 jersey, It will be improving upon the 23 minutes he played in the NBA last year to something closer to the 29 minutes he played per game in the summer league. Last year, you could count the amount of words that Caboclo knew. Now? He’s telling anyone who will listen he wants to be counted on. It’s the biggest indication the baby-faced Brazilian isn’t just a cute fan favourite. Bruno Caboclo means business."
