Why isn't Justin Jackson getting some playing time?

Biggest L of the season.

I tried to find many tank commanders on our bench during the season but Bazley is doing a very good job to lead the tank.

I guess I don’t see terrible.

He's shooting 28% from three on over 5 attempts per game. He's basically the worst shooter on the team now, behind Poku. He has shown flashes in some other areas but the shooting is pretty terrible. I'm hoping for the best but he's going to have to make some big strides to stick around the league. Realistically, he doesn't have a ton of time to do so before the organization starts having to make tough decisions on young guys.

Lazy on defense too.

I loved the fact that he improved his dribble this season and his shot mechanic didn't look that bad but...he's terrible right now.

I still like his potential...think we gonna know next season if he has any future on our team.

During the next five years we are almost assuredly going to move on from guys that end up developing elsewhere.

To me, Bazley could develop similar to Jerami Grant. Part of the reason Grant developed is because he got minutes and opportunities on an asset-poor team. That's not who the Thunder will be moving forward. That's my concern for Bazley. If Jerami Grant had stayed buried on the 76ers bench, would he be the player he is today? Would he even have stayed around the league?

Or he could flame out of the league like Ferguson ? There should be some improvement in his 3point % next season.

I agree that Bazley could develop similar to Grant but Grant worked hard and always gave 100% in games. Don't know Bazley's work ethic off the court but on the court he just looks...disinterested
