Cacok definitely overperformed what he did in college, showing a lot more offensive translation and hops than I expected. He's a worker. But he's a 6'7" center on offense, which limits the upside. On defense, can really rebound and has toughness and short-range quickness, but the defense by height, foul proneness and inability to protect rim hurt him. He was awesome in the G-league but in ways that couldn't really translate to the league. He's just of the wrong archetype. 15 years ago he'd be getting Craig "The Rhino" Smith minutes.

Oliver's a 6'8" 225 lb smallball 4/5 type, but has more 4 qualities than Cacok. I actually ranked him as a top-45 pick in the 2017 draft (he was undrafted). The first thing that jumps out at you is that he physically imposes with big-boy athleticism. He's well-built for his size, is an absolute dunk machine, and just an excellent rebounder and shotblocker. There's really some Stromile Swift-like qualities here in terms of the sheer athleticism with an attempt at floor spacing (but nothing trustworthy). He's unrefined, ball-skills wise and in foul control. If he sticks, he can learn from our guys and he'll be fun to watch at garbage time.


Players are now measured constantly barefoot; he's 6'7" and basically a bouncy younger K. Faried. IF he's good at PF, he could have some value & a little more if he can handle some SF's IF injuries occur.

We seem to be covered at C....

Here are his highlights of that Laker game.


Yeah, I remember he lit us up. Like everything that could go right, did. That's one of those games where it's like ok, show me that again.

He’s obviously not Millsap, but he has some Millsap-ish to his game. Worth a look in training camp.

We need a guy who can primarily play SF, not a combo 2/3 or a 3/4, but a true SF. If Oliver fits the bill great, it not find another minimum level SF, heck bring back McKinney or sign Ennis if you have to, and call it a day.
