Adding a versatile wing player like Royce O'Neale established that James Jones made the right move. O'Neale has started to find his rhythm on the floor with his new teammates. He's only played six games but has already become a natural part of the system. The forward also had his first start in their win against the Lakers.

O'Neale played 37 minutes that game and put up incredible numbers across the boards. He finished with 20 points and hit six threes, which helped the team overcome their division rival. In the six games where he played more than 20 minutes, he either finished with double digits in scoring or close to it.
