Siakam centered on only one thought: I need to go home. James had already booked his flight to Douala, but Pascal had applied for a new visa that was still being processed. If he flew to Cameroon, there was a strong chance he would not be able to return to the U.S. without the proper paperwork. “My brothers are saying, ‘You can’t come.’ My mother says it, too,” Pascal says. New Mexico State coach Marvin Menzies, who had lost his own father two years earlier, rushed to his player’s side. He made some phone calls, but it quickly became clear Siakam’s best option would be to make the heart-wrenching decision to miss his father’s funeral. If he went home to Cameroon, he risked losing his scholarship and his future as a potential pro prospect.

The Raptors are hoping 23-year-old Pascal Siakam, who is shooting just under two threes per game at an 18.7-percent rate, can make a similar leap. While the jumper has yet to come along, Siakam has morphed from a reckless ball-handler who would occasionally twirl out of bounds performing ill-conceived spin moves, into the engine that fuels the second unit. DeRozan referred to Siakam as Toronto’s Draymond Green after Monday’s blowout win over the Pistons. “You have to be [patient],” Casey told SB Nation on Sunday. “We have a young team, seven or eight guys, and we’re trying to win at the same time. If you’re developing and winning’s not the top priority of the season, then OK, but for us, it’s always been to try to win at the same time, which is tough to do.”
David Aldridge: How do you know when you’re all locked in? DeMar DeRozan: You just know. I always look at my guy Kyle, and you know he’s gonna ride or die with you. But it’s crazy when you’re able to look over at a guy like Pascal Siakam, or Fred Van Vleet, or Delon Wright, these young guys who only have a couple of years in the league, they’ve got the same look that Kyle’s got. That says a lot about the team. Because you know when those young guys go in, they’re some dogs, too. That’s the beauty of it, and it shows.
