I still like Fields.
I see him as somewhat of a Bellinelli:
Doesn't work with the talent level of this team, but a solid player.
Looks like Fields will get some court time depending on how things go:
Raptors want to get DeRozan’s minutes down a bit. Might bring Fields out of mothballs or try Novak at the three + Salmons— Ryan Wolstat (@WolstatSun) December 27, 2013
you can see in the posted diagram how every time you take a shot that pathway is activated.
Landry Fields has 1 of 3 paths
1.) Shot is never the same due to some of the damage being permanent.
2.) Damage eventually heals but takes a long time to get his shooting stroke back
3.) Damage has already healed but confidence and form have been altered durastically
If it was 1 they would shut him down from all practice
If it was 3 you would hear stories about all the hours he is putting in with a shooting coach.
It's likely 2...but alas I'm not a doctor just a guy with the exact same ailment who two years later has phantom pain and numbness in my fingers.
Some of the comments on this thread are quite overboard.
Landry Fields can't shine if he's not being given playing time, did no one remember the good things he did in pre-season and to start the season? His defense is very good, he's got awesome basketball IQ, good slasher, good passer, he's a perfect team player. I wish he would be used more, he's got a lot to give.
Salmons is doing all that for half the money/
I don't recall those flashes, sorry.
Waived by 2014 ?
I personally think he could use some time in the D.
