Of the five players evaluated here, Cage might be the most imposing of the bunch. He's got wide shoulders, a huge build, and an impressive 6-10 wingspan. That benefits him tremendously in the work he does as a free-lance pain-inflictor, constantly looking to mix things up around the basket by fighting extremely hard for his keep.
Cage showed some flashes of being able to do a bit more on occasion as well, though. He hit a spot-up NBA 3-pointer in the scrimmage on one occasion, and made some fantastic passes to open teammates virtually every time he put the ball on the floor. He doesn't quite stand out in all the things he does unless you really pay attention to him, as he's a smart, tough role-player who doesn't need any plays called for him, but still finds a way to make an impact on the game. He played fantastic defense on basically anyone he was asked to guard, using his strength and wingspan to their fullest combined with his excellent lateral quickness.
Cage was a last-second addition to the NBA pre-draft camp, after previously being named a late addition to the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament. We'll see how far he can continue to make his run. He might be Thorpe's favorite pupil here so far. He sees him being able to develop into a James Posey type player in the pros, as he already has one skill NBA teams can rely on off the bench in his defense, and is making strides shooting the ball from behind the arc as well.
