Hayes is looking at the Khyri Thomas treatment unless Rose gets moved. This is clear as day.
I suppose Casey could play Hayes next to Rose in the backcourt (since we have no real shooting guards), but I’m not holding my breath that Hayes sees the floor much this year, which is obviously absurd for a trash can of a team.
Last year, after dumping Drummond, Jackson, Morris... Casey played Knight, Henson, McRae starter minutes, with Galloway.
He did not play Khyri, King, Hall unless he had too, because those guys were hurt, or too tired. Mostly just Hall because Thon was awful.
Hayes, Stewart, Bey, Sekou arent seeing any minutes. Maybe 30 total minutes a game, between them, if we're lucky.
Casey loves DRose, so thats a lock. Wright played with Casey in Toronto, thats a lock. Hayes is not playing unless they get hurt.
Grant and Griffin, thats all the PF minutes. No Sekou.
Bey is 6'8", but doesnt have the lateral speed for quick SF. He is a true tweener in the NBA. But Casey will play anyone in front of a rookie, so Svi probably plays here.
Plumlee has "veteran grit" so hes starting. Stewart maybe sees some minutes?
What dumb moves for the Pistons. They are trying to win as many games as possible.
A starting roster of players that you predicted WILL NOT BE winning many games at all...
Yeah I agree with you, but they are trying to win. If they dont win, thats not the point. They are trying to win and Casey will play the vets big minutes unless they get hurt (Blake/DRose). I mean he did that to DRose twice last year, playing him big minutes until he got hurt. Even though Blake was already hurt the and the season was over.
Whether Casey or Gores like it or not: Sekou, Hayes, Bey and Stewart are the future. Weaver just gave Casey the excuse not to play any young guys.
