 Day 2 of the Bruno Caboclo experience was equally intriguing.

The youngest player in this year’s draft is shy off the court, but not once the ball is thrown up, and he proved that several times in an 11-point outing.

The Raptors got thrashed by Denver 104-83, but that matters little, considering wins and losses mean nothing at Summer League.

Caboclo attacked the rim on a few occasions, just failing to convert a massive two-hand flush attempt at one point and skillfully finishing a tough layup while being fouled later. He launched six three-point attempts — we said he was not shy — making only one, but also was not afraid to initiate contact.
