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.
I agree if he were to raise a stink then he wouldn't be what we're looking for but it's hard on young players to get that message. Look at Tmac...if you aren't going to give me the chance to be great i want out. I have no idea what character Roko has...he was a Babcock draft pick and RB was all about character... but not the best judge of it(i.e. Alston) but I can't get away from the fact he just woudlnt' have the opportunity to develop..and I have to say BC must agree with me(or is it the other way around?) or he'd be here no?

I think you'll see Damon moved by the deadline this year by which time they hope Lowry can run the show and they can mentor Conley. I think you'll see a lower priced veteran come in somehow to replace Damon perhaps in the offseason..maybe DMart? LOL
