So, this overpaid yet consistent forward has caught us in a weird situation since Wright has gone down. Do we really want him as our backup four or is he a cancer on this team? He always seems to have a good attitude but his game off sets that much like how Crawford did. Now I'm all for playing him 20 -25 minutes a game but now he looks like he will be playing much more. A player like him seems to not fit with us cause of how reluctant he is to pass but at the same time he seems so perfect cause a weakness of the we believe team was being consistent and he brings that(and boy do we need it). But his contract handicaps us for this big off season coming up where a player like Ray Allen or Joe Johnson would be a good addition but because of his contract we have no chance at either. I remember at the beginning of last season we all hated him and wanted to trade him, then he got injured and the Baron Davis rumors came up and we got excited. But at the end of last year he seemed to play really well. We are in a awkward situation with him. Do we keep him and have him as a sixth man or do we trade him for a cash dump like him for James Jones and Dorrell Wright? That is the question. As I see it we should explore that type of option with him but I would be ok if he were to stay. But we already have a player who can take his job and do even better then he has and his name is Kellena Azebuike. He is a great player when attacking the rim but he is getting older and seems to want to just take jumpers now.
Maybe you should do this more often....
But when he gets worried he just seems to want to hold the ball to long, then he will either turn it over or commit a foul. And his defense has so much potential with how strong and athletic he is but he just does not put in the effort there. Sometimes he seems like he cares more about stats then a win. He slows down the offense alot as well.
Pass the ball!
We can only hope he starts being a team player this year or a team needs his services and offers up some expiring contracts.
