    If Casey was able to break through with Bargnani, maybe he has similar plans with Bayless:

    He could still play starters minutes off the bench (like Terry), but I just don't see that idea sitting well with Bayless. Too much ego at this stage of his career to thrive in a bench role.

    Does Casey not realize what Bayless' numbers have been coming off the bench? Nothing to brag about.

    I don't think it's an issue of pass-first vs. shoot-first. In this instance, we just need a PG capable of getting by his defender, regardless of whether his first instinct is to pass or shoot. ...

    You make a very good point. A backcourt comprised of Bayless and (for example) Beal would mesh much better than Bayless/DeRozan.

    Tough break in terms of injuries. I don't think they're chronic issues.

    Regardless, he's definitely not worth the QO. I'd rather have the $4 million in cap space. He's also not a PG (despite...

    I'll admit Bayless had a monster game last night. He made shots, played suffocating defense on Conley, and basically willed his team to victory. He played great.

    But don't forget that this was...

    Bayless = Nick Young

    If you like scoring, Bayless is God.

    If you like discipline and fundamentals, Bayless is [insert unheard of player's name here].

    Yes, I saw his numbers last year. They're the same as this year. They look good on paper, but he still can't run an offense.

    I just find it baffling that there's this much debate over a player like Bayless. To me, it's very clear he's not capable of running an offense, and I don't wish to waste the team's valuable...

    What I meant is that Bayless hasn't shown us much in the past 12 months. He's still the same player he was when we acquired him. So what can we realistically expect him to transform into over the...

    In your opinion, does Bayless' evaluation period last beyond this season?

    The reason I ask is because it's likely that by April 26th (i.e. the final game of the season), we won't have any more...

    Bottom line: Good statline as a result of mediocre PG play. That's not what I'm looking for in a future floor general. This is real life, not fantasy hoops.

    This is very similar to the Bargnani...
