Not even close. He has so man DNP-CD this year. Hollins didn't want to mess up the bench rotations the way they had them and Young is strong enough to match up with Artest so he just started him. Young had already asked for a trade since he wasn't ever playing so this gave him a chance to prove to the Grizzlies and other teams what he could do. Again, Hollins is big on growth and knowing where you are supposed to be on defense and how to space the floor and Sam was not on the level of the other wing player when it came to that. He's not a bad player at all, just fell out of the rotation.
