Winslow said it feels as if he has been through this before, from when he first entered the NBA in 2015 as a mostly unknown commodity after only a single season at Duke, albeit a championship season. “It’s just like playing against a rookie,” he said. “You don’t know a rookie’s tendencies until kind of like their second year. A lot of people say rookies have great years. And then they say the real test is kind of the second year, once guys start getting used to it. I think I’m starting to go through that. Teams that we’re playing repeatedly are getting used to it. But luckily it’s kind of halfway through the year. So a lot of teams we play, we don’t play that many times more.”

Storyline: Nikola Vucevic Free Agency
Vucevic, who became a first-time father in December, said he’ll take a wait-and-see approach. “Obviously I’ve had a great seven years here, but at the same time, we’ll see what happens,” Vucevic said. “It’s a mutual decision, and it’s not just me. They have to decide what they want to do. Based on that, we’ll go from there. I wish I knew what would happen. I wish I had a contract in hand. It would be all over right now.”
