    GTJ has to start eventually or he is going to get the bulk of the minutes. Nurse's system doesn't work with players like Dragic out there.

    I was actually looking forward to seeing Gary start and what type of season he could have. I agree that eventually he will be starting. I think were simply trying to boost Dragics value.

    Seems like they might be trying to showcase dragic so I expect him to get the start. Would love to see how the FVV/GTjr defence is though.

    Barnes needs to work on his closeouts.

    Trying to showcase 17 year vet in a preseason game? idk about that. I think Nurse just likes him. Eventually the novelty will wear off.

    GTJ should be starting with Dragic off the bench.

    He hasn’t been playing a ton of games over the last 3 seasons. 50-59-36 respectively. With older players teams wanna see if he’s cooked or not, how much he can still impact the game, and if he can stay healthy.

    I agree that Nurse probably likes him, and it could be that we do use his vet presence, but being that he’s on an expiring contract I think it’s a safe bet that we do try to flip him by the deadline and it doesn’t hurt if he had a strong season up to that point so that we can net a decent return. Albeit a decent return for a 17 year player is not gonna be earth shattering.

    I just think he's a known quantity and most GMs know his performance is dictated by his health. He just left a team with a rigorous conditioning program and with a shortened offseason, I doubt conditioning is something they're concerned about either. The more he plays, the less he has left in the tank in the post season.

    I really did NOT like the 3 guard look we had out there with FVV/Dragic/Trent for a stretch. I know we were missing Siakam, Boucher and Birch, but we shouldn't be playing small at SF this season.

    I think we will, we need more shooting. I think Svi is going to be in a lot of these types of lineups too.

    Trent really can’t get to the basket at all.
