I’m sure he goes to work everyday.
I'm sure too. But it's like a guy who never gets on the phones in customer service, or rings the cash register when the store gets busy even though he's hired to be a cashier. Just show up, go through the motions, and then watch everyone else work when it's game time. Not blaming him, just this is a worthless distraction to the other Suns at this point.

I'm not sure how much quickness IT has left but hopefully he can still more than earn his money just by being the quick PG opponent we need to practice against.

And there really is something to be said for some leadership even if from the bench. Something this team seems to be lacking in general.

IT has signed for the remainder of the season, making him playoff eligible. Now if only we had a coach who would play him.

We need bench scoring, another ball handler, and to give Beal & Booker a little more rest. IT should have received more playing time over the last 3 weeks. It's getting to the point, if it hasn't passed already, where we need to see how he meshes with everyone else in case we want to use him in the playoffs.

I just feel we need to balance the roster a bit with Oneal starting and Allen coming off the bench. And then for IT we can find some minutes at the end of the 1st/3rd and start of 2nd/4th, something like 4-5 minutes each half, for 8-10 per game for IT. He can me our mini-microwave.

Thomas is pointless at this point because Vogel isn't going to use him sans an injury.

That's the problem, Vogel only plays him in mop up, if at all. Kinda says to me, The GM got this guy, but I don't have to play him. I am wondering if there's a little disconnect there between the coach and the front office?

I think there is a huge disconnect between the coach and everyone.
