    Here is how the young guys can get time and possibly expanded time. Don't suck at defense. It absolutely is the most important criteria, I believe, in Joerger playing the young guys. It's why Buddy has seen some fluctuations in PT, absolutely why Skal is limited as well as Papa. Malachi gets run when Joerger wants the switchables.

    Give me more “pointless” games like this. I would not demean good defense against LeBron and if he could take our defender to the cleaners any time he wants then let him do it.

    The coach (and the front office) is already doing what you suggest. They are giving a plethora of inexperienced players more playing time than they deserve in order to develop them. It is true that they did this on purpose because they chose the ratio of young platers to vets that they now have. Of course they will continue to play the vets since they are the best players we have and, if we didn’t, the results would be ridiculous and counter-productive to the development of our team.

    I'd like to see Bogs get 30 minutes a game; it doesn't matter whether he starts or not. As far as WCS is concerned, he needs to be continually reminded that it's OK to rebound out of his area. If WCS rebounds, I'd play him; if he doesn't, I wouldn't. It's up to him.

    Bogdan is a really nice player and ready for more rope. The answer is simple. Play George Hill less. If you are worried about Hills trade value, fret not. He doesn’t have any.

    Nobody wants 1 and 1/3 years of Hill at 19 per. And if you want to take back toxic assets to move off of Hill, that’s going to be there regardless of how much or well he plays in January

    As usual I agree with you 100%. Hill was a bad acquisition that’s all there is to it. Still don’t hate Vlade but George Hill - I’ll be fine if I never see him on the court again. Huge disappointment

    I would have preferred bringing back Collision and was hoping for Teodosic but I was happy with the Hill signing. But he's been a huge disappointment.

    Why Joerger keeps him as a starter I'll never know. The Kings starting unit has dug a lot of holes for the bench and Hill is a big reason why.

    We all do. But how many 19 or 20 years old rookies tear the NBA up right out of the gate? Even Bogdan got off to a slow start this season and he is older than Fox and had experience playing Internationally.

    Give the kid some time. We'd all like to see instant success, but that's not usually the case.

    This is just a terrible take.

    That's completely true and I am by no means suggesting otherwise. Bog might be a great pg. So could Fox. Maybe Bog could be better than Fox. Thx for not straw manning me like that other guy :)

    Not instant success, but instant flashes.. he hasn’t been holding up that end of the bargain lately..

    I understand the context that he might be an awkward fit with who he’s on the floor with, but that doesn’t excuse him from showing energy, impacting other areas etc..

    Remember that PG is probably the most difficult position to learn in the NBA. For a recent example, look at Kris Dunn. Last year he averaged 3.8 pts on 38% shooting (29% from 3). He grabbed 2.1 rbs and had 2.4 assists. This season he is averaging 13.4 pts on 43% shooting (38% from 3). He is grabbing 4.6 rbs & dishing out 5.9 assists. And he came into the league at age 22, not 19.

    He was handed the keys as soon as he got to Chicago, not having to worry about playing behind anyone and he can play mistake free knowing he will play 30+ minutes nightly.

    You guys are both right.

    Whaaaaaaaat.....??? 4 DNPs, then not his first start until 11/15 (12th game of the year), and then full time starter with the 15th game.

    I kinda get your point, but he wasn't handed the keys as soon as he got to Chicago by any means.
