I'd say one big reason for the minutes varying had a lot to do with defensive weaknesses that he was not at all able to help with. Another bonus with the arrival of JO. That - and it just took a while for him to be as comfortable within the system as he was in the playoffs. I'd say he was actually ready to break out over the last part of the season, but Sam preferred refining his role over making him the kind of go-to guy he was in the playoffs. There was no need to tip-off the scouts. I would guess that this season his importance becomes pretty much set in stone.
