Honestly, It was out of Thomas Bryant’s control, when he was waived.

The difference was fundamental between Zu and TB: Zubac can play the PnR action very well, especially when he’s setting screens.

Bryant played in an offence in Indiana, that really didn’t accentuate the Pick and Roll.

Given the PGs we have on the team, and the need for a big man to roll. Zu was the logical choice.

He has to prove he can set good screens or he’s gone next.
