NBA Role: crafty playmaker • UnderDOG

For a young point guard to fully earn a coach’s trust is a tremendous accomplishment – it says a lot about Raul Neto’s radiant future; a crafty playmaker by way of Brazil, Raul’s a rare commodity: young, flashy passer who takes care of the ball – does not make many silly mistakes, probes around well before releasing passes; better shooter than anticipated (smooth release) – finished #3 in 3P% as a rook in 2016; pesky defensive presence who picks unsuspecting guards’ pockets; needs to add about 10 lbs of muscle;  Utah’s suddenly stacked w/ playmakers – though Neto only sees spot minutes, he figures in UTA’s plans moving forward
