Matisse Thybulle – 2019-2020 – Annual Objectives

Name of Player: Matisse Thybulle (A.K.A. Spiderman, The Disruptor, Matisse Threebulle)
Position: SG/SF
Level: Key Reserve (Rookie)
Manager: @phillyironlung

Objectives

Matisse will be a nice addition to the lighter side of things already headlined by handsome devils such as Ben Simmons and Zhaire Smith. At 6’5”, Thybulle has a very long wingspan that he relies on for defense to make up for some lateral quickness deficiencies. One thing I hope Thybulle learns this season is how to be quicker on his feet using different techniques, chopping feet, core strength, etc. for more balance.

Matisse joins a very talented roster that is built to contend now. But that shouldn’t stop Matisse from logging significant minutes this season. Thybulle has the chance to be an above average 3 and D wing. To be able to contribute this season, however, he will have to gain some defensive polish and be able to at least shoot league average from deep and above average from the FT line.

Fails to Meet Expectations
