14pts/8reb stat line is fine, but the game became garbage time midway through the 2Q, so it doesn't mean much. Best thing was that he missed his first 3 shots from deep... then swished his last two. He's really improving in that area.

Tosan also had to defend Porzingis a ton and wasn't too successful, but that's not really on him - 7-2 jump shooters will do their thing. He did manage to avoid committing unnecessary fouls (that Princeton training).

Baby steps forward. Gotta have a breakout game or two with this opportunity. Doesn't need to be Linsanity, but enough to make an impression going forward.

Tosan played the maximum amount of games allowed by his two-way contract. Sounds like the Pistons liked what they saw - I can see him getting a full contract next season.

No Tosan Evbuomwan tonight for Detroit vs Brooklyn, as he has reached the limit of playable games under a two-way.

Monty Williams hopes to work with him in the summer, within the program.

“I think he’s got a chance to be a rotation guy in the league”




As awful as the Pistons were, Tosan looked increasingly comfy with each game. He was the glue guy in their year-end starting lineup - making the right pass, guarding multiple positions, shooting efficiently on his minimal touches.

I can see him becoming a Kyle Anderson type, greasing the wheels for a team's stars.

I saw him against the Celtics. He looked an awful lot skinnier. I assume that was on purpose.

I guess that's part of the transition from PF/C in college to SF/PF in the NBA. He definitely looks more comfortable guarding wings than bigs.
