You gotta work around his limitations because it's doubtful he'll ever get the tactical aspects of the game. You do what Beal is doing, give him lots of love and support--which he needs desperately psychologically--and get the most and best you can out of him.
No different than what the Lakers did with Rambis and Mark Landsberger before him--go as hard as you can as long as you can and damn the torpedoes!!
IMO Trezz was a fantastic role player for us (emphasis on both 'fantastic' and 'role'), and I'll always fondly remember those telepathic pick'n'rolls with Lou. He does have a tremendous chip on his shoulder which can show up in inopportune moments, but it's also what drives him on the court. So with him you gotta take the bad with the good, both in terms of his emotions and his skillset on the floor.
Doc did overplay him at times, but Trezz also really came into his own under Doc.
It's only truly a shame he wasn't a better defender, most grinder types are good defenders. Had he been a better defender he might still be with us as he'd be able to play more positive minutes and justify the larger contract he was looking for when he left in free agency.
