What I don't like and borderline hate is that,even though Pietrus maybe the best option to play SF right now,guys like Ross and Kleiza who haven't been given much of a shot but shown some stuff when they've been given the opportunity,will likely get reduced minutes. I think they all have the same impact on results for this team essentially,but Ross has the highest ceiling (while the other two have peaked as NBA pros)so hopefully he still gets more playing time.
The management can't help but care - it's their asses on the line, all the way up to BC.
