Castleton can be active for 50 games.
All 3 2-way can be active for a total of 90.

I would hope that any time one AD/Hayes/Wood is out we would bring up Castleton. Especially early because I assume we'll grab a big at the trade deadline waivers.

I like this guy...

If Wood isn't working out, I'd give this guy more burn...

He could be our new 'Zubac' EXCEPT we don't let this one go

This kid is not even remotely ready to go up against the big boys. We
need to keep tabs on him but he definitely has a way to go.. We'll see.

This guy has some game. Ham should throw him in during blowouts to get him some minutes.

Per 36 mins

18 pts
17.4 rebounds
4.9 blocks

He had a good preseason and the best among the 5 rookies as DB stated.

With guards and perimeter players, you want them to relocate to open space to get the open shot. But down low, there typically won't be open space. You have to position yourself to have leverage and wrestle for advantage. Colin rates really poorly at this right now, but he could get better with improved strength and some coaching. He seems to have a low enough base and the agility to get to leverage points. Then he just needs to put a body on guys.

Right now he's looking to float to open spaces and is getting pushed outside of the frame.

He clearly knows how to play, but he’s vulnerable to getting over powered and he very much has a below the rim kind of game. He’s looked really good in his minutes against third string guys and backups, but can he keep up that level of performance against the monster athletes in the nba? We might find out if Woods continues to suck.

Castleton will have a hard time in the league with all the
long and jumpy C's and PF's out there...

I watched him closely in the summer league. He left a very good impression. He has a skill set that be developed real nice over time. He has a nice touch, he's a willing defender, he's intelligent, and he's got the one thing you can't coach:height.

He's older than the average rookie so he may fill out a bit quicker over the next two seasons, which is the timeline I'm looking at most.

From the end of the SL to the start of training camp the only area I really wanted to see if he made progress in was developing his body. We got him for free, so I'll give him a bit of time because he looks like a great contributor for our core, at least he does to me.

Seeing him today made me remember how unreasonably optimistic I am for him at some point. Hopefully he gets some more garbage time now that he's healthy

I forgot how well this man moves his feet defensively. He should probably get a roster spot next season!

Annoying how he doesn't get spot minutes at least. We're up against a team that has the size advantage on us, and we're down our center. There was little to lose in playing him tonight and we still didn't do it. Annoying. Oh well. Hope he gets a chance at some point, because I think he deserves it.
