Outlook in 2014

Dunleavy knows his role on this team and doesn’t pretend to be what he is not. This is a roster loaded with talent and stocked with athletes from top to bottom. He knows he is going to get very few minutes throughout the season, but he doesn’t let that discourage him- he practices everyday with just as much fire and intensity as everyone else- if not more. This roster is just too deep with talented guys for him to get any real opportunities. Is worth to the team comes in practice, where he goes all out every day and gives the regulars quality looks during drills. Don’t expect to see too much from him during the season, but don’t be surprised if we mention him during practice reports because he grinds every day.
