In a world without the coronavirus, Detroit would have been deciding early this month whether to extend the contracts of a trio of second-year guards or to waive the players. Svi Mykhailiuk’s 2020-2021 contract would have been guaranteed if he were on the roster on July 4. Decisions had been due July 6 on Khyri Thomas, and July 9 for Bruce Brown. Those decisions now don’t have to be made until October, multiple league sources said.
“I felt like Svi took strides each and every game,” Kennard said. “He learned something every day. Svi – he’s a workhorse. He’s always in the gym, getting shots up early, staying after. He’s a smart player. He’s just smooth.” Blake Griffin also saw Mykhailiuk’s growth and thinks another leap forward is coming. “He’s like a basketball purist,” Griffin said. “He’s putting in the time every single day. He’s listening, he’s learning, he’s watching. And he has a really good feel for the game. Physically, right away you can see the things he brings to the table, but I think he grew this year. His mental approach and also just his confidence that he can impact the game in more ways than just shooting. I think next year will be a big year for him. He’s put in a lot of work and I feel he’s taken that step.”
