If he produces he plays. Period. Valanciunas will likely start with not so many minutes. The combination of him starting out of shape, and Casey not being able to scheme the offense properly, left him in the shadows last year. Those factors are gone.

Even if he gets limited minutes due to a logjam, if he produces enough then it will be someone else that gets moved to free him up. He's not going to bring much back in any trade due to his contract anyway. If another team targets him and offers a lot in a package deal then that's one thing, but otherwise this guy has a big opportunity to be a core piece while someone else gets moved. And it is his opportunity to take and make the most of. He isn't just going to be denied any chance to do that. It's not the way Casey works.
