He and Jason Maxiell should definately get more PT with Ben gone....

When the pistons selected him 56th overall in the 2005 draft, they knew that they were dealing with a 3-4 year project. With Ben gone, I think it will open up more playing time for both players, but I think Maxiell with benefit more as he is the most experienced and NBA ready player. I think Amir will go to the D-League again, only to be called back because a big man is injured. I hope he gets a bigger role because he has a shown a small amount of what he's capable of. As for Jason, I look for him to have a solid year. Also, i like Tayshuan to breakout this year.
