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.
If he raises a stink then he won't be on the team that much longer. Something I would say our culture is, team first, always team first. So, if he complains, well then he's not really suited for here.

I'm not really suggesting keep Martin at all actually. Again, he's suited best for a role on the bench. And again, that's where Ukic could learn. I don't think anyone has high expectations for Ukic, at least not I personally. And Conley is somewhat wasting away in Memphis with Lowry taking over the majority of the PG duties.
