Default Casey is an idiot...

In tonights game vs Detroit, he played Foye for 16 minutes. How is a rookie supposed to get a feel for the flow of an NBA game if he's not on the floor? Give the guy 25-30 minutes a game at least so everyone can see how he meshes with KG, Davis, & James. Meanwhile, Jaric played 20 minutes and put in 15 pts. Not bad, but the guy is a veteran and we know what he can do. I'm still hoping that the only reason Casey is playing Jaric so much is to showcase his "skills" for a trade sometime before the trade deadline this season. Bracey Wright even got 13 minutes of playing time and he's a long shot to make the active roster, some of those minutes need to go to Foye. All Casey is doing is giving some fans more reason to complain about how we should have drafted Rudy Gay and Foye was a mistake. If Foye got some playing time, that view that some fans have would more than likely change.

Remember that they played in 3 teams during the summer camp though. They are probably putting them in their specific teams somewhat and they need to develop chemistry throughout the entire team. I know everyone wants to see Foye, but he will get his time. Personally, I don't care as long as he gets his minutes during the season so he can start turning it up during the "2nd quarter" of the season. We know the guy is ready.

Don't worry about it too much, he will get more minutes as Casey sees that he's growing. Casey is kind of dumb, I agree. Sometimes I think he's the reason we didn't make the playoffs last year. His coaching mistakes were sometimes mentioned in the season games on television. I think a talent like Foye is hard to deny minutes though sooner or later. He won't be like McCants, even though I thought McCants could of been getting a lot more minutes last year. He needed confidence and he might of gained a lot more if he would of saw a lot more minutes in the beginning of the season.

Because the staff thought it was better getting a PG, since Troy Hudson always gets injured anyway and Jaric wasn't performing. I don't think we had the money for a Center anyway, since they all wanted 10 mill a year. We used our mid-level on James, right? I think we did. Maybe we will make a trade later in the season though.
