    Default Fields....

    Certainly on his way out for something right? get his money off the books?

    salmons has effectively replaced him does everything he did while playing maybe except for rebound as wel as Fields. Salmons however provides a vet experience for the team cheaper contract and shooting which Fields sadly didnt get back.

    Ujiri must be trying to work him into literally anything but its a tough sell no doubt... must be a head scratcher for him when he was looking over the teams payroll.

    Fields career is a real shame. Confidence-destroying undiagnosed injury, and now he can't even get into the lineup ahead of John fucking Salmons.

    If he could ever get his shot and confidence back he'd immediately be an important guy for us. Good instincts, he'd make a good 3 and D guy.

    Wtf is fields doing? it cannot possibly take this long to regain his shot. Alex mckechnie said his shot would be back by like the start of the season. That is long gone

    At least we don't hate him like we did bargnani for being injured....

    He praises god a lot, so hopefully his god will help him gain the strength to recover his shot.

    Fileds has Nash to thank for his millions for the rest of his years. Nobody would have given this guy this kind of money and he was blessed to get that contract.

    Fields is still a very strong ball handler and defender.
    Does anyone remember his defense on Melo or his defense on Gerald Henderson late game against Bobcats this season?

    Unfortunately, he's not getting enough PT to get some confidence back in his shot.

    I like his effort, rebounding, personality, defense, but if Casey is going to bench him all the time and play him for short stretches with the rest of the bench, he's not going to shine. If he can't shine, then forget about moving him for anything worthwhile.

    I don't think Fields can be moved without bringing back a stinker of a contract. His value in the books is *only* $6.25M but he's worth $8.75M next year.

    Not too many GM's are going to want to pay him that much money even if he's an expiring contract next year. I say he rides the pine until his contract ends, and for his sake I hope he gets another gig. He's a good 'team' guy.. just not worth his paycheck. I'd rather have him on the bench than some obnoxious head case.

    Fields had the Duchenne's sign and extensive damage had been done before he got treatment.

    In cases where it's caught early 3 - 6 months. He might even need another surgery as his shot still looks broken with a bit of a hook at the end.

    When did that Nerve Damage happen ? Was it before of after he signed with us ? It must have been after because if it is as you putting it and would take years and years to heal, than he would have failed his physical exam.

    I really don't think trading Fields is a priority. He has a terrible contract that would unlikely get the Raps decent return. His trade value will be better this time next year, as an expiring contract. Only way I can see him traded this year is if he's part of a multiplayer deal that makes the "math" work.

    Yes - exactly .. he actually has negative value right now - trading him will not happen unless we send another asset somewhere else with him. As painful as it may be, hes best to sit on the bench and act as an injury hedge ..

    Alex Mckechnie has been an overhyped overpaid failure in T.O.

    And the evidence for this would be that he hasn't been able to repair nerve damage with physical therapy? Or strength training? That is what he is paid for actually. I mean strength and conditioning, not nerve damage repair.

    If MU blows it up, he'll find a way to include Fields with one of our better assets going out.

    Casey's a piece of shit, he said he's not pressuring Fields to get his shot back and that if he does it will just be a bonus well then why does he get no run?

    If you are planning on winning games like Casey is for the sake of your job, do you play a guy who is crippled? Honestly do you?

    Last time fields played he missed a 2 dunks and 3 wide open like hes out on an island 3s.... you panic and bench his ass let him continue working with Sterner and Mckhenie in the mean time cause everything else is there which would be great for this team. till then though we got salmons.
