But thatâ€™s only for short runs. What he needs next is figuring out where those shots will come from with the Warriors.
My thought is that the fastest way to get shots is to set picks for Curry. Moody has the right frame to set great picks; he should drill on that with the big club. Over and over.
He does play fine defense, but to earn minutes heâ€™s going to have show more than that to leapfrog guys that have paid their dues.
He really needs to stand out and his competition for minutes is Lee. He has to be that much better than him and he hasnâ€™t made the case yet. Leeâ€™s defense is weak, but offensively he is a more reliable shooter. I donâ€™t think Moody will overwhelmingly surpass Lee in offense this year, but he can make the case over him by locking people down on defense where Lee is weak. And there are minutes to be had in that area as Iguodala is old and GP2 needs to recover from little injuries.
Unless he makes a Poole leap in offense which doesnâ€™t seem like his game. His best bet to winning favor is through great defense mainly then playmaking. At least thatâ€™s the fastest way I see him winning minutes the way the coaching staff is running things old school.
