NBA Role: crafty playmaker • UnderDOG

Ty Lawson: a lightning-quick, veteran PG; dropped from Star UnderDOG status in 2016 but that was largely due to bad roles in both Houston & Indiana; advanced court vision in the open floor* (hits open teammates from almost anywhere on the run) – was he a product of Denver‘s frenetic pace?; lack of size leads to struggles on D; improvises well after action breaks down…only problem, the action breaks down a little too much with Ty at the helm; needs to play at Sonic speed to maximize his talent – will Dave Joerger give him the freedom to play fast?; a (permanent) reserve role could suit Lawson very well – Sacramento’s a solid, low-key situation to get his career rolling again

*avg. career-best 9.6 dimes/night in ’14-’15

Signature Move: crossover, step back J
