But maybe Schlenk doesn't want to give too much minutes to the younger guys. Limiting their production can also avoid a situation where you're just in the middle of the Conf and not ready to contend, but with two players becoming All-Stars and asking for a Max contract. No need to play for the win next season by giving too much playing time to Trae or John, so better try other players with no risk : small contract for Parker, easy to trade if he plays like in WAS, they didn't wanted to keep him at 20M, but he played better than a 6.5M player with them
