Saric would be getting minutes. It's my recurring speech about the importance of every roster spot.

Things can happen. It's important to be prepared.
Saric should not get any minutes unless we are playing a team with multiple bigs.

We are far better off running a nine man rotation with extra minutes for Cam/Mikal than letting him on the floor.

Of course if someone is injured they would come into play - nobody they would get time over currently is injured - That's why I said they would not be getting any minutes now.

Nadar has been a disaster this year when he has played, by far our worst player getting any time. I for one am happy he is injured right now, because if he wasn't we would be a worse team because Monty would still be playing him.

Suns are not missing anyone who would get minutes.

The truth is we need more progress from Ayton, bridges and the Cam's then we have gotten so far. I was expecting more progress then we have gotten. Also Shamet has been a disapointment - but I am coming to the realization he just is what he is, and that is why he is shipped to a new team every season.
I agree with Ayton but not the rest. How can someone Like Ayton still not get it? Shamet is not a bad player not sure what you expect.

I like options so I'm happy when Monty has every player at his disposal. There is a time and place for almost everyone.

IMO, Saric is a better player than what he showed last season. I don't know what was going on but he was erratic.

In regard to Nader, I think injury has impacted his game. Like Saric, I think he is a better player than what he has showed this season.

We agree, a steady nine man rotation is about right if everyone is healthy.

Amen to that, ive seen Cam Johnson be more engaged and get some nicer touches without nader in the game. Sometime Nader and Payne just go into full attack mode with tunnel vision towards the rim. Payne is good when he penetrates, it makes our second unit that more dynamic. Nader just kills the flow of the second unit.

Shamet is not bad, but there is a lot of room for improvement. If you look at his stats he is essentially the same player in year 5 he was in his rookie season.

I was just anticipating him being more than just a decent spot up shooter - but he's not. That is really his only NBA skill, and it's not even elite.

Saric also shouldn’t be factored in because the reality is he isn’t coming back this season. Thus it’s not like he’s someone who’s going to possibly help down the road this season like a Klay or their 1st pick Center from last year.

I think he has been surprisingly good defensively, but nobody ever mentions that.

So in your opinion saric shouldn’t get minutes. But the truth is, monty likes him. If he were healthy he’d be getting minutes.
