Default Is Foye going to start?

W
olves fans there expect him to be coming off the bench at least for the first half of the season...

Why? The guy is NBA ready and he is Minnesota's last hope. Maybe the Wolves have a chance to make the playoffs if Davis/James/KG click...but without Foye given an opportunity to contribute I dont see the Wolves doing anything but missing the postseason or losing in the first round. And if that happens, say goodbye to KG and hllo to rebuilding mode. Anyone have any insight on this issue?

This is what Casey said during the Kfan interview on randy foye:

On Randy Foye:
Casey didn't want to pigeonhole him into a point guard or off-guard. The coach did say he wants to put Foye into the fire pretty quickly and that the rookie shows more command of the game coming into the season than McCants did last year.

So maybe he will be starting....or he may be getting more minutes off the bench than most...

The way I see it, this guy is physically gifted for a person his height. We need to put the dude in right away so he can develop as quickly as possible. As long he gets his minutes, I have no problem with im coming off the bench or as a starter. He's physically ready to do it and his skills are good enough for the NBA, so why not play him?

He better be playing opening night! I might buy tickets for either the pre-season or opening night. There's been so many busts, I doubt he is one.

I highly doubt he's a bust, I think he's Minnesota's next franchise player, and that feels really good to say.

Nope, they do not.


Foye can be a solid player this year too in my opinion. If he can get 10PPG off the bench I will still be happy that this kid has a future on this team.

He's the #1 ranked rookie and made a strong case for Rookie of the year during the summer league. I'm sure he'll start the majority of the season.
