Trenton has been fine as long as he didn't put the ball on the floor on the offensive end. It's when he starts dribbling then he gets tunnel vision and looks for his shot and it gets ugly.
Personally, I rather have CDR with Brook because Brook has been able to find CDR on cuts and the tempo of the game is better with CDR out there. Also, this year really should be about training the young guys to get a rapport with each other for next season. I think eventually CDR will come off the bench, but not till next season at least.
As far as bench scoring, yeah it's pretty bleak but as soon as Courtney returns it should be better. Besides, Frank has been pretty good with rotations. He always keeps CDR, Brook, or Rafer on the floor to make sure there is some scoring. I rather keep the confidence up among our young guys than put out the older guys who will be gone come next season. No reason to give them minutes on whats going to be a bad season anyway.
