Raptors Weems unhappy

Quote:
In the seven games since the arrival of forward James Johnson in a trade on Feb. 22, Weems has been ditched from the starting lineup and been used sparingly, playing more than 20 minutes just once. Thatís bad news for a player whose contract expires at seasonís end. Though thereís little doubt Weems will find work in the NBA going forward, suddenly the specifics of the scenario ó where heíll be playing next year, and for how much ó arenít nearly so clear.

Last time he had to battle Antoine Wright (aka Trianos favorite) and Marco Belinelli, this time Leandro Barbosa and now JJ.
Don't think he should complain tho, still getting steady minutes there. Should be grateful instead that Kleiza is down.

What I like most from Weems are several episodes of real lockdown defense in clutch situations. All on smaller guys, SG or PG. He would stay in front of them to the end. Its so rare from a Raptor player.

Hope he doesn't dig a hole with his mouth and will be back nest season.

And again, I like him more at SG

SG 4% +33 102.4 91.3 11.1 10 9 52%
SF 32% -289 97.2 111.4 -14.2 8 35 18%

Coincidentally I think Derozan is more effective guarding SF

Sonny has been given every opportunity to grab and hold a position on this team.

He hasnt.

I like the new "produce or sit" attitude. Of course, a lot of it has to do with his minuscule contract. They have nothing invested in him.

“It is my contract year, and I want to feed my family,” Weems said. “I’m disappointed every day. It’s not pleasing at all, and it doesn’t make me happy. But it’s something I have to deal with. That’s the way the cards were dealt.”

wouldnt want weems to leave, i like his game. He needs to step it up a bit, and show jay how he can shut his opponent down.

maybe if he didn't suck and make such horrible decisions he'd get to play. Can only be mad at himself for his play.

What the fuck is with all these players and "I have to feed my family"

The minimum salary is like 750 thousand a year... if you cant feed your family off that then you got other issues

He's worried about James Johnson? Hell, Julian Wright made him seem expendable....

Weems should have concentrated on D but he didn't. If that quote from Acie is right, then that's downright gross. Weems has become a spectator on D and he isn't worth more than a minimum contract. Why pay for a guy that wouldn't crack another team's top 9?

He is the best guard on the team and both he and his teammates know it.

Just ask him.

Mike James couldn't afford to take his wife to the Bahamas making 3.5 million a season, so it's completely understandable Sonny can't feed his family making 200x the average US income.
