Yup, traded a bunch of Kobe-syndrome chuckers for a 3pt shooting PG who's a willing passer, a banger hustle PF and one of the league's best spot up 3 point shooters.
Definitely looking at having a much better bench this year. If Fields can rediscover his shot and Ross can improve, it's only that much sweeter. I'd love to grab a legit backup center though, I wish Camby would play for us :(
I think the rotation should look something like this next year (minutes played in brackets):
Lowry (32)/Augustin (15)/Buycks (1)
DeMar (30)/Ross (15)/Fields (3)
Gay (25)/Novak (10)/DeRozan (5)/Fields (3)
Amir (20)/Hansbrough (15)/Gay (10)/Novak (3)
Valanciunas (30)/Backup C (10)/Amir (8)
Backup C: 10mpg
AA drove me crazy but I blame Casey more than anyone for his shenanigans. Good for him.
AA had to play guys get that through your heads already..... who else was Casey supposed to turn to to balance out the rotation on the Wings? Ross and Fields were shitting themselves night after night. Anderson had to play. I didnt like him much either but there was no choice..
I hate AA but 100% agree with this. Ross and Fields were terrible last year so Casey didn't really have any option.
What a relief. We don't have to watch Casey check him in so he can get his dosage of shitty shot attempts.
