He's been shaky with the ball. Against the Washington Wizards, he put up 16 points and dished out six assists, but he turned the ball over seven times. In 10 minutes of action against the Philadelphia 76ers, he scored only five points with one assist and one turnover. He's the third point guard on Brooklyn's depth chart, but it may be a while before he displays the awareness and wherewithal necessary to have a consistent role on a championship contender.
14. Tornike Shengelia, SF
At the moment, he's recovering from knee surgery, but as a 6'9" 22-year-old, he's an interesting prospect. He played in 19 games throughout his rookie season in 2012-13, averaging 4.9 MPG, 1.6 PPG, 1.2 RPG and 0.2 APG. This season will feature him learning from Brooklyn's veterans as he eases into game shape and evolves as a basketball player.
13. Mason Plumlee, C/PF
The Duke University standout is gifted athletically—he runs the floor well, can finish around the rim and is a solid rebounder and shot blocker. He's a high energy guy who will work hard every game chasing after loose balls and forcing turnovers wherever possible.
12. Alan Anderson, SG
In four preseason games, he's shot 10-of-28 from the field and has averaged just over two turnovers a game. He has decent range on his shot and can create off the dribble for himself, but he may struggle to find playing time. He'll need to cut back on his turnovers and improve his perimeter shooting to move up the depth chart.
11. Mirza Teletovic, PF
Unlike last season, Teletovic actually looks comfortable and effective on the floor. He's shooting the ball confidently and has made some flashy plays, including a great put-back dunk against the Washington Wizards. His outside shot could use more consistency—he's gone 3-of-7, 2-of-7, 5-of-9 and 1-of-6 from the three-point line, but that should come together as the season progresses and he finds his rhythm.
