    Default Everything Malcolm Miller

    If you draw a start on a contender you deserve at least a thread. I personally like his demeanor, gotta improve overall IQ but seems like a good kid. Hopefully this gives him the opportunity to impress and become a role player here or somwhere else.

    Who knows, maybe they'll upgrade his 2-way contract and he'll be the guy we sign as the 15th man

    I think he's going to be a rotation player next year. I like Miller a lot.

    Might that mean it's time for "Everything Nigel Hayes"?

    Yes, I know it's vintage Casey, but inserting a G-Leaguer into the starting lineup for the sake of maintaining a familiar rotation, seems crazy to me.

    I don't want my 15th man playing any minutes, unless it's garbage time.

    It's ok when there is no other real option there. Miller wasn't a disaster last night, but your newly signed 15th guy playing over your 14th guy isn't an issue.

    And either playing over the player formerly known as Norman Powell is also no issue.

    To me, the obvious adjustment meant starting Miles or Siakam (at SF), and increasing both their minutes accordingly.

    Powell - No idea what happened to this guy.

    If they really believe in his 3 and D abilities I don't mind him starting. The starting lineup needs a consistent 3pt. shooting SF to open things up. I don't care where the answer comes from. Sadly it's not coming from Norm right now.

    I actually think Casey keeping Miles on the bench is the right move, he is just bringing him in sooner now.

    He looked alright to me. Nice size/athleticism combo, reasonably fluid. Good to see him trialed as part of the rotation rather than in garbage minutes.

    Too hard to start those guys and maintain balance with the bench. Siakam doesn't space the floor, either, so that makes it hard to start him at SF.

    Miles makes sense but he also needs to be a shooter with bench units.

    Good to try and steal some minutes with a fringe roster guy to start.

    The regular rotation guy that might make the most sense is Wright if the other team lacks a good/big SF. PG is our deepest position and Wright is pretty versatile on both ends.

    Delon would probably work in the starting lineup when the other team's best player is a guard. Against Houston he could match up with Harden while Lowry and DeMar take Paul and Ariza

    How many draft picks you want to give up?
    If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

    Malcolm came up huge tonight. Gotta give our scouts and Stackhouse credit, they keep finding and molding hard working professionals. Getting an eerie Spurs vibe from our management.

    He came in poised and hit all three of his shots. Being able to just throw more capable bodies out there when injuries hit is a great luxury

    Don't know about the rest of y'all but I think I much preferred Miller coming in and giving us what he did than the notion of having a 41 year old Vince getting some kinda trial.
