So if Ford comes back and stays healthy the whole year as does Jose.. and Roko gets 2 mins of garbage time in 15 games over the season... do you think he takes that well and doesn't raise a stink?
Then the only 2 guys whose salary you can just swallow up are Moon or Dmart. You're suggesting keeping Dmart on the team... can Roko contribute anything near Moon? Baston is making what 3 million? Can't just chuck that.
If there were actual minutes available(i.e. we didnt' have two starting quality pg's on the team) i would agree totally. Having the kid learn behind TJ and Dmart for example like Williams in New jersey
or Conley and Damon in Memphis... that makes sense because there are minutes available to actually learn the game.
