After watching most of his rookie season from the bench, Jeremy Lamb will be going from 12th man to arguably one of the most important players in the Western Conference.
The Thunder will be in need of offense this season, with Kevin Martin now in Oklahoma City, who essentially was James Harden's replacement. Lamb's minutes should go up significantly, as he'll now be expected to make routine contributions off the bench.
This summer, Lamb looked stronger and more physically mature than he did a year ago.
We already knew he could be lethal as a scorer on the perimeter, with the ability to create and make shots from all over the floor. But now he looks NBA-ready from a physical standpoint.
Offensively, Lamb has takeover potential, something the Thunder will hope he taps into from time to time.
He could be a double-digit scorer in year No. 2 despite barely seeing the court as a rookie.
