He was praised as NBA-ready, and he was not. Granted DC and his infinite wisdom and judgement didn't help. If DD is dealt than TR will get a lot of minutes.

What infinite wisdom would have helped if he wasn't ready? And why would he get a lot of minutes if he still isn't ready? It's not like he hasn't gotten any minutes. It's pretty simple really, just as Ross himself says, if he puts in the work and gets better and stronger, then he'll get minutes.

Why does Demar Derozan need to be referred to in every post? The Bargnani obsession has been dropped. That's 1/2. One more to go and there are no more issues.
I wasn't referring to people opining.... but sorry to have angered you!

No more issues, that would be a dream.

He would get minutes because the guy getting 30-35 mpg making 9-10 mil/year wouldn't be on the team and the team would be about letting young players play and not about being a fringe playoff team. I agree that he needs to be ready as well and so far has been disappointing.

Did the guy getting 30-35 minutes make that last year?

Is that same guy not a young player too or is a year and half older the equivalent of 6 years in the NBA?

No but he was given the task of being a starting in his first season and allowed to play through any mistake imaginable while getting 30+ mpg in his 3 following seasons. And management gave him that money based on his play.

About to enter his 5th season and still faces the same issues as before. Don't want to go into that cuz we already know his issues.

Ross had better bring more to the table than he did last season or he may find himself the new goat of the team now that Bargs is gone. Flashy open-court dunks and the occasional 3 just isn't going to cut it.
