RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Lucas is mostly a scoring point guard. The journeyman's biggest role came in Chicago in 2011-12, when he put up 7.5 points per game in 49 games off the bench. He'll play a similar role this season.

2012-13

Lucas did an adequate job last season with the Bulls after Derrick Rose went down, but he joins a Raptors team that has two starting-quality point guards on the roster. At best, Lucas is a useful insurance policy.

2007-08

One of five point guards trying to make the team - could get traded.

2006-07

Lucas is undersized even for a point guard, but the Rockets like his work ethic, and he played very well in the Las Vegas summer league. Expect him to push Luther Head for the backup point guard job.
