On this week’s episode of “The Breakdown” host Danny Marang hands out Preseason Report Cards to four players that stood out for various reasons; Derrick Jones Jr, Robert Covington, CJ McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic.
Who skated by with a “C’s get degrees” mindset in the trial season? Who impressed and set the curve from the class?
