Juancho Hernangomez is Cassian Andor.

The brave and slick Spaniard shares more than one quality with his Rogue One counterpart.

First, Cassian has a keen eye and is a crack shot from distance.  He shoots well on the move but get him a shot where he can set up and get a solid look and he never misses.

Second, Cassian and Juancho understand the big picture and that the team goal is always more important than individual accomplishment.

The nice thing for guys that make their way out of the spotlight is that the guys in the spotlight know, even if the audience never does.

Juancho has an opportunity to fill a huge hole for the Nuggets.  We will see if that hero is within him.

Cassian gave his life to his cause.  Juancho just needs to get a little stronger and you know, play some defense.
