So, Triano is not putting him in garbage time, he is not putting him in in crunch time, but still says that he want to develop DeMar's game! He is not that bad, he is better than 15 minutes a game!

Go figure out?? Your thoughts...

I hope to see DeMar out there more often too. He's definitely one of the most energetic players we have. But right now, it seems that him and Weems are fighting for the same minutes, and Weems is doing something to impress JT more.

Here is how I see it: we have four below average swingmen in DeMar, Marco, Sonny, and Wright. Fortunately, at least one of them steps up every game, so Triano is just going with the one who is doing the most. Marco has had games where he explodes for double digits off the bench in only a few minutes. DeMar has had great games, too. Sonny and Wright still offer the most on defense and they seem to have Triano's trust... If for no other reason than what they are doing in practice.

I'm sure DeMar will come around, if not by the end of this season, then early next year. I just hope we don't miss out on his potential like we did with McGrady, though.

Yep. Triano is staying with the hot hand. Heck, even Wright deserved and got extra minutes today.

I hate when players get their minutes even when they suck. Good on Jay making them earn them.

DeMar should be coming off of the bench IMO, being able to operate against B-level defense as opposed to the best of the best and being the 6th, 7th, 8th option on the floor as a starter isn't really great for his development.

He is part of the Young Guns so what they should do is put Demar bench with Weem and Amir and temporarily put Belli until they can get someone that actually a Starter Caliber to play with our 4? Also we need to find a Young Gun leader which we need to draft or trade to get.

I call Demar "Mr. Invisible" because when he's on the floor, you hardly notice. I know it's early but so far he's been largely unspectacular. If we are to get to the playoffs, this kid shouldn't be starting. I think Triano has more faith in Weems right now.

he is not even bad at all, he is good and the moments he is playing Raptors play better and seprates themselves from the oppenants. I think Jay needs to go. Im sick of his horrible coaching methods and he is an idiot because if he hadnt benched sonny earlyer in the season we couldve had more W's.

LET DEMAR PLAY U BASTARD TRIANO!

Derozan isn't all that good right now. And Toronto needs to win. Weems is a better player at the moment.

Derozan gets lots of burn, and he gets to start, I'm sure he isn't complaining.

Another bad move by Triano yesterday for benching Weems until 4th quarter.
