After two seasons in Brooklyn (6.4 points per game in 2020-2021) where he had played little in the last play-offs, the French winger will try to win his place in another ambitious team in the Eastern Conference. His unsecured contract requires him to perform well from training camp and then preseason matches after which the NBA franchises will reduce their numbers to 15 players (plus two “two-way” NBA and G-League contracts).
In Georgia, “TLC” will join a team with a European accent with the Italian Danilo Gallinari, the Serbian Bogdan Bogdanovic or the Swiss Clint Capela. Effective in a profile of “3 & D” in Brooklyn (defender and three-point shooter), the French should also play the preseason matches in Atlanta from October 4. The resumption of the regular season is set for October 19.
