Someone in our league dropped Cassell, thinking that Livingston will take up all the minutes. He had a great game last night, but Brand was complacent. You think he can keep that up?
I could drop Damon Stoudamire for Cassell, but cassel would just get me points, while damon can get me more 3s and steals.
I had Sam Cassell last year and although his season average of 3PTM last year was 0.9, He averaged 1.5 3PTM after the All-Star break. And there is no significant difference between Stoudamire and Cassell in the steals category. You need to pick up Sam Cassell. He will get 30+ minutes per night, Shaun Livingston or not.
But there is also the point that cassells minutes might be cut down a bit to make sure younger talent can develop like Livingston....At this point, I wouldn't know what to say. Who else is available?
decreased minutes is a possibility, but barring inury it's not going to drop below 30 mpg. The Clippers are in "win now" mode and Sam Cassell is a big factor in why they are in the hunt for the NBA title.
