I agree if Casey trust Fields to guard melo why can't he play defense on the second unit. He's not going to hurt you by taking bad shots. He keeps the ball moving, brings energy into the game and has shown he can rebound. Other than his 3pt % he not shooting badly. He doesn't take a lot of shots maybe up to 4 a game since the trade and make more than he misses. We have enough shooters. He's more of a movement guy and doesn't thrive in slow down iso possessions. He makes good decesions on the fly and has shown he can lead the break. He can also finish on the break as he showed last year with all the lobs he got with Lin in New York. We haven't thrown any to him this year and his best offensive games unfortunately have come when Jose was running the offense. I'm not saying he's the cure-all but he hasn't played badly when given the minutes whether it's been guarding multiple positions, rebounding, ect and since the trade games in which he's played 8 minutes or less we've lost. in our last two wins he's gotten minutes and played a part in not with his scoring but his floor game.
