Some of yall really overreacted about Yurt7, man.

Sure he didn't play well but come on. He needs reps to get used to NBA speed, I don't expect any young 7 footer to feel conferrable from the start.

Game against Pelicans at home I want to to see him and KZ eat some minutes.

Agreed--it's clear he got thrown off rhythm early and stayed a little lost. Literally the only way to get past that is to work through it with some experience.

We've seen a short stint that was very promising and a short stint where he looked completely lost. I hope we can keep finding opportunities to get him experience, and maybe even some 3-point looks.

Those minutes might just be available given how long Morris is seemingly out for. Really unbelievable how that **** played out.
