    This is the dumbest thing. So they didn't want to trade him but they don't want to play him. He's going to just walk when he's a free agent. Why would he resign after this treatment? If they decided they were willing to trade him this off-season, they're not building up his trade value by playing him only 25 minutes a game.

    Yep which is why Whiteside said his goal is to get more minutes after the break.

    I agree, he should get more minutes. I know others on here and on Reddit seem to throw the whole (when other teams go small he can't guard them). But that is BS, so many times he would be feasting on smaller teams and have like 16 points and 10 rebounds at half and then play like 6 more minutes the second half. There are so many times he doesn't even play in the 4th because we want to keep feeding JJ or TJ or anyone else who is ice cold.

    Whiteside should play 35 before he should play 25.

    Oh look another L. Who would have thought a team filled with average at best players would be a .500 team at best.

    I was thinking a lob might be a good play there but not to Ellington. He's a great shooter but he's probably the last person on the roster I would throw a lob to. You have to put in Bam or Whiteside there if you're going to throw it up at the rim.

    Winslow with the monster +12 box score +/- but still a putrid 1/6 from the field.

    It's Spo...

    I blame him for Beasley also. Beasley should have been a HEAT lifer lol

    Something must be happening behind the scenes because we can all see that it doesn't make any sense to play Winslow anymore.

    Pat needs to talk to Spo. Spo needs to condense his lineup. Just play 8 guys until those 8 guys work flawlessly with each other (but I know sometime foul trouble or an injury might not be able to make that happen).

    Then Spo can start to see who would be the 9th man. Spo seems like he is trying to play everyone.

    By that 8 man idea...

    Of course Whiteside, Dragić, Richardson, and Wade are guaranteed locks to play. You probably want Bam to get development time so you're also probably forcing him into the rotation.

    That's 5 guys already. From what's left you have Olynk, TJ, JJ all making double digit millions. Can you really afford to bench any one of those guys who have a minimum of $35M+ remaining on their contract? Then we have Ellington. They need shooting can they leave him out? How about McGruder when he's healthy?

    So yeah, all of the mediocrity and depth does present a challenge where Spo has to play 10 guys or so. They should have traded a couple of guys for 1 better player.

    Beasley def could have worked out

    He's proving the talent in NY right now

    I'm sure Pat tried to target couple of players but for whatever reason the trade didn't go through.

    Also, don't think of it as benching players, think of it as finding the right fit & then having that 1 extra player battling for that final spot. And if he stops balling, then someone else takes his spot.

    But you do bring up a good point about the contracts.

    The players I think Spo should gel together are... Dragic, Ellington, Whiteside, JRich, Bam, Tj, KO & Spo can decide the 8th player
