AA should be playing 48 minutes/game if his legs can handle it. I know he is not the "best" player on this team, but given the other options at his position and the way he's been playing, he is the most important player on this team if we intend to win games.

bc has to sign this guy to a big contract NAO


Given his age - 30 - I'd probably explore a trade more than a new contract. If a contender wants him, we might tie him to another asset to clear salary, or use him to spice up a trade involving Jose or Andrea or whomever to get a little more back. He's the perfect off the bench glue guy for a contender because he can bring good offence, his defensive metrics are apparently very good, and he's very experienced/mature thanks to his years playing high level ball in Europe.


They are and I fully agree with Dagger. I think he is a trade chip that will be attractive to both contenders and playoff teams like the Grizzlies or the Timberwolves.

He plays great off the bench so Casey wants him in that energizer role. Problem is, there are other guys (Kleiza and Fields) who he's obligated to give minutes to due to their contracts and experience, but they are not starter material. So therefore he has to start Pietrus by default, and then take away backup sf minutes from Anderson and give them to Kleiza/Fields from time to time. It's not ideal but I'd rather it be this way than to cut into the SG minutes (DeRozan/Ross).

I have no issues with a more prototypical sg stealing some of derozan minutes. This kid has to be held accountable for his defense and questionable shot attempts. it's a wonder why he's designated as the #1 option with his inefficient scoring. Why he's allowed to play heavy minutes in a defensive culture when he plays NO D.

I have trouble believing this. Defense brings only 1 side of the coin, and that's stops. The other side is where we score. Holding our opponent to 0 points but scoring 0 ourselves can't net us the game. You won't have 5 two-way players on the floor at all times which is why you clog the paint with big guys when playing penetrating teams like OKC for example. I am assuming you are ragging on DeMar because he didn't shoot well in that game but I solely blame the ball dominance of Alan Anderson for that and Casey's coaching.

It's obvious that DeRozan needs screens set for him and some space to work with and all we were doing was standing around watching Alan chuck or waiting until there wasn't much time in the shot clock and giving DeRozan contested looks.

Its pretty clear that DeRozan is not yet at the level of creating for himself. You see many times if he cannot loose his man off the screen, he is frustrated and just stood around. Unlike Anderson, he will make a v-cut or walk closer to show his willingness to help Calderon (or ball handler) to create ball movement.

It is more often that DeRozan cannot do much, and Anderson is the one to bail people out. DeRozan has only 9% of his shot in less than 3 seconds of the clock (from 82games), which means he cannot bail people out. Calderon and Anderson did without Bargnani. Anderson is taking Bargnani's role to bailout a lot of shot. Not even Lowry can take some of those heats, being blamed selfish when really he and Bargnani carried to offense early on, while now Calderon and Anderson helped with better offensive system.
