Playing Time post-deadline
Well, nothing happened...as most of us expected/feared.
I don't expect changes in the starting lineup...that would be too much to ask. But does anyone think Jefferson and Millsap were getting huge mins to enhance their trade values?
Now that the deadline has passed, my hope would be that K O'Lindsey has Corbin cut the mins for those two by about 5 each and give them to Favors and Kanter. Derrick needs to be averaging in the high 20's and Kanter at least 20 mins.
As for the wings, let's hope Burks mins are safe. Watson needs to be sent to the bench with Burks playing point behind Tinsley until Mo comes back.
Not gonna happen.... main reason we didn't trade was how good the team is right now and the FO will just tell Ty keep doing what your doing.
As usual Ty will play what gives us the best chance of winning.
Minutes will be based on "Match ups"
I think Millsap's minutes come down a bit, so that he and Favors are in the 26 - 30-min range. I think Al gives up a couple extra minutes per night for Kanter. If Burks keeps playing well, he'll get a few of Foye's minutes.
Marvin Williams may continue to start just for the sake of consistency, but his minutes haven't been that high lately anyway.
Unless your name is Kanter. I'd love to have Ty sit down and steriaght up tell us what he is, or is not, seeing. Why does he do what he does? None of this bullcrap answers for reporters. Real, honest stuff.

There will be no change in the minutes for the bigs.
The biggest change I can see happening is Burks continuing to get the amount he's been getting recently.
- Rep Power
- Rep Level
Were stuck with this same dumb mediocrity till next year it looks like.
If anything happens, Al and Milsap get MORE minutes.
You mean that as a change in his minutes going down right? I'm sure once Mo comes back they go down.
