I think Kleiza's skill-set is not suited for being a consistent part of the offense. He does not have the handles to break down a player from the perimeter; he is not as good of a spot-up shooter as expected, either; and a SF posting up is not as advantageous because it is easier to time your doubles and, without a size advantage over everyone like a dominant big might have, Kleiza might have barely an advantage on the guy guarding him. Once upon a time, even a PG could dominate this league with his post game; I don't think the NBA is like that any more.

I totally agree that they need to do a better job of using Kleiza or find a Mike Miller/Kyle Korver if that's what they really want at that position. It's not like Kleiza is making up for it with his defense or rebounding, either.
