I like the guy, but I’m over the Jevon Carter experiment. Time to switch it up.
Yeah I mean Galloway isn't quite the defender Carter is, but is a good defender and is automatic from 3 (especially the corner). Don't see how he doesn't have a consistent spot in the rotation.

Has Carter’s defense been that great for us though? It would be interesting to see the analytics.

Paul has 10 assists with 0 turnovers. I've never seen a PG rack up so many assists with so few turnovers. It frustrated me seeing him walk the ball up early in the season but now that I'm used to it and see how in control he is he could go slower and I'd be ok with it.

He’s amazing. And what he’s doing, it’s something he can do and still be at a high level for years to come.

I don't know about the analytics but Carter flat out stopped Westbrook underneath the basket on one play.

One play doesn’t make you deserving of being the primary backup to Book. Booker has stopped Westbrook, and he’s not a defender.

He hasn’t been a defensive juggernaut since his turn came up in the rotation.

Yeah I've come around on the idea of extending him. It won't really give us cap space but it will reduce the payroll and hopefully encourage Sarver to pay for another MLE signing this offseason.

I'd keep him in the rotation until Nader returns. Nader will need minutes and that's a way to fit him in since Craig has taken over the role he had.

I don’t know, I still like Galloway more than Carter. I’m not sure I like Nader as the backup SG either. But questions about multiple backups is a good problem to have.
