If the Covid situation had him mostly nailed to the bench I don't see any hope he'd get a fair shake. May as well trade him for a couple of good 2nds. Some tanking team like the Rockets could try to see if they can create a player.
This exactly. He has shown an ability to guard good players and he provides a ton of energy. I don't get how a guy like that isn't worth having on the end of the bench for certain spots. He's not learning a thing dominating the G-League.
Him toiling away on the bench and playing mop up duty during prime development years isn't optimal, either. I'd rather him in the G-league playing 30 mpg than the alternative. Same goes for Bassey and Joe. Can't waste development time with young players.
That makes sense, but are you planning on bringing him up at some point? Kid has the potential to be a stopper, which is an invaluable post season asset.
