Things changed dramatically for Bryant in November.  With Dwight Howard out for months, the former Hoosier has a big opportunity in front of him.  He earned his first career start in the NBA in November, and is seeing the most extensive playing time of his young career.  He had a 12 point / 7 rebound performance against Philadelphia last Friday.

It has been a truly amazing reversal of fortunes for the still just 23 year old Vonleh.  He has already started more games than he had in a season since 2016-17, and he seems to be fully capitalizing on the new opportunity in New York.

With five teams in just over two seasons, Williams can already be labeled a journeyman.  But he is doing good things in Sacramento, and has averaged nearly 20 minutes and nine points per game over the Kings’ last two contests.
