Caboclo recorded 11.0 points, 4.0 rebinds and 1.2 assists per game in five Las Vegas Summer League contests. In his first two seasons with the Raptors, Caboclo has appeared in just 14 games. Toronto drafted the Brazilian prospect in 2014 with the notion that he would be a long-term project. While many will view his first two seasons as a bust, it's important to remember that Caboclo is still just 20 years old and developing his game. His solid production throughout summer league play serves as a reminder that of his talents, but with DeMarre Carroll and Terrence Ross ahead of him in the pecking order, Caboclo will likely only hold value in the deepest of leagues.
Caboclo (coach's decision) was inactive Tuesday in the Raptors' 102-96 overtime loss to the Heat in Game 1 of the series. Caboclo hasn't played in any of the Raptors' eight postseason games, and he'll likely continue to remain one of the team's two inactives throughout the second-round series, barring a string of injuries.
Caboclo made his first career NBA start in Wednesday's regular season finale, scoring just three points (1-9 FG, 1-7 3Pt) while adding one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in 35 minutes. The 20-year-old still appears to be a long way from being a big contributor for the Raptors, and Caboclo will return to the end of the bench when the postseason begins Saturday against the Pacers. With another offseason to hit the weight room, though, he could push for a bigger role in the wing rotation as soon as next year.
Caboclo will draw the start in Toronto's season finale versus the Nets. Cabocolo will start at the small forward position for the Raptors Wednesday. He was recalled from the D-League on March 20, and has only seen the court in five games this season. He should see a decent amount of minutes given the team's situation Wednesday, but it will be difficult to predict his production.
Caboclo was recalled from the D-League's Raptors 905 on Sunday. The Raptors could be without James Johnson (foot) for a second straight game Sunday against the Magic, so Caboclo will give the team some additional depth on the wing. Caboclo only played two minutes in the Raptors' last game Friday against the Celtics, and likely wouldn't be in line for much more court time than that if he enters the rotation Sunday.
