Mickey looks like Chamberlain in the D-League, so it's best to temper expectations.
This is true, except I think it was Fab Melo who was the Wilt Chamberlain of the D-League.
Danny could easily cut Mickey (or unload Zeller) and Young and then add Nader and Zizac for the second half. Brad might then have players with something unique to offer from the deep end of the bench.
We should make sure guys like Zizac and Nader aren't hidden gems before spending outrageous assets in "on tilt" trades.
My problem with Nader is similar to Rozier. Where does Nader fit into a rotation which includes Brown and Crowder? I could see Brown at shooting guard and Jae at SF. I mean, they might not be redundant. I think we can keep both of them long-term in the same rotation. Where is there room for Rozier and Nader? Zizac fills a certain hole.
Yabusele seems destined to fill a future power forward slot. I think Olynyk will be resigned if not included in a trade for a big such as Noel.
Demetrius Jackson is another player.
Danny can't keep everyone. There are still a million more draft picks to select to add on to all the stashes and semi-stashes like Nader.
It's a catch-22? You are trying to win, so you can't play them? Only upper echelon talent like Brown and Smart are capable enough to be thrown into the NBA fire?
Rozier has potential as a rotation quality guard, but Smart has taken away his minutes. Unless there is an injury, he is only an asset to such a degree. It's amazing that James Young is still on the team. It should have been Nader, then this wouldn't be turning into a potential issue. I guess who can blame Danny for wanting the cake and to eat it too. He's drooling over a boatload of assets and some will probably be lost. Hopefully he doesn't pick the wrong guys. RJ Hunter will probably never haunt us, but Nader could.
