In May, Okoro averaged 16.6 points per game with his highest usage of the campaign at 20.5%. According to the team source, the Cavs are planning to feature him more within the offense next year. “He’s labeled as defense, athleticism and strength, and usually you don’t associate that with skill and touch, touch around the rim. So he has a lot of that stuff, and he has a high basketball IQ. He’s gonna be pretty good,” the source said.
Center Jarrett Allen said Friday he was surprised at Okoro’s workload — he led all NBA rookies in minutes per game as of Thursday. “It’s awesome to see. It’s been a great rookie season for him,” Allen said of Okoro’s progress. “He’s been through a lot, just seeing trades, how much he’s been playing. “I saw he’s played the most minutes out of every single rookie. That’s a tough job coming in at how old he is and he’s handled it like a real professional. Just going down the line, I think that’s going to help him in the long run, make him have a good and lasting career.”
