Jaylen Nowell ready to energize the Wolves bench a little more

When it comes to internal development at Wolves, one can naturally think of Anthony Edwards or Jaden McDaniels. But a third man is also concerned: Jaylen Nowell. “ One thing we know for sure is that the internal development of Ant, Jaden and Jaylen, those three guys in particular, will be the biggest driver of our success next year. “, believed Chris Finch.

A statement that dates back to… the end of June, in other words a few days before the transfer set up around Rudy Gobert. This transaction confirmed this feeling in relation to Jaylen Nowell who, in addition to not being sent to Utah, saw Malik Beasley jump ship. The latter, with 12 points on average, was Wolves’ top scorer off the bench last year. With his departure, Jaylen Nowell, who evolves in a similar register of offensive booster, should logically be given more responsibility.

This transfer opened up a lot of opportunities for me. It’s up to me not to take them for granted, to keep improving in the game and, every time I’m on the pitch, to be the best version of myself. », displays the 23-year-old player who was much more effective in shooting (47.5%) than his teammate at the time (39%).

The back is also able to create his shot with ease. The Star Tribune notes that with 48% shooting success in the game in isolation, he was the team’s third most skilful player in this register behind Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell. In the midst of this small army of “role players” on the Wolves bench (Bryn Forbes, Kyle Anderson, Austin Rivers, Taurean Prince…), this creation will probably not be too much.

In his last year of contract

Especially since the interested party, like Naz Reid, is starting his last year of contract. The two men, whose options were activated this summer by the franchise, will therefore have an interest in shining to aim for a salary increase during the next “free agency”. This season, they will receive just under two million dollars.

I really try to put that aside. Because I think if I focus on that, I’m not doing my part as a teammate. It’s obvious it’s going to happen. It’s part of this business, but ultimately I’m focusing on this year and how good we can be this year. », Displays the replacement.

His coach already promises him a role as an X factor, in line with what he was already doing.

He did it for us in the past but now we will have a significant role for him. It was difficult to give him regular playing time with our bench depth. It was more depending on the situation. But he’s adapted to that, and so far he seems pretty good. “, ends Chris Finch.
