And yet hasn't improved that much...
With a 31% 3Pts%, he can't be considered has a 3 and D guy.
That would not be a good sign for our season if Semi has a bigger role...
Again, you are complaining about a guy that played in 56 games and only got 10mpg. He was 5th in the rotation amongst wings. What were you really expecting from him? Was he supposed to usurp one of Hayward/Tatum/Brown/Morris last season?
If Ojeleye was as worthless as some of you make him out to be, don't you think Ainge would have cut him already when he was trying to carve out cap space? His contract was non-guaranteed if he was waived before July 1st.
Nobody is complaining. But saying that this guy could have a bigger role and be a 3D player is giving him too much credit.
And who knows what Ainge think, maybe Semi contract will be use in a trade soon.
Once again, if he was an elite defender, Stevens would have give him more than 10mpg.
Knowing what we now know about last year, where people were upset about Hayward getting minutes - who exactly were you going to play Semi ahead of? Tatum, Brown, Morris, or Hayward?
The only time Ojeleye got playing time last season was either due to injuries, someone in foul trouble or during garbage time. Expecting him to break the rotation and take minutes ahead of guys in front of him was an unreasonable expectation.
