    I am going to make this very simple. Sasha Pavlovic is your best bench player hands down. LA may have got the glory but we do not win without Sasha last night. With that being said if he has anymore DNPCD this season I am going to freak out. Your bench is simple play Leonard, play Barton, play Price and above all else play Sasha. 

    Barton and Leonard need the minutes to keep developing and quite frankly Barton is the closest thing to a scorer we have on the bench. Pavlovic and Price are both smart veterans who work hard. Sure both have looked pretty bad but that is you fault Stotts give them some minutes and the mistakes will start to go away. Does our bench still need help sure it does, adding someone with the toughness and defensive presence that Kenyon Martin brings would be a good start but having some consistent playing time is crucial to developing any semblance of a bench.

    Sasha is coming off injury, that's a big reason he's been absent from the rotation. Stotts has repeatedly said Sasha is one of our best bench players.

    all you said cmese makes sense, and until we improve our bench, that´s the way to go, play safe and use the most reliable players, i would just add Claver, may be a surprise if he gets more minutes, and Jeffries that is a useful bench player to.

    the rest of the players shoud be used to improve the bench, either trade or waive them...

    Stotts is doing a good work, with the players he has, it would be almost impossible to make more of this roster...

    That maybe true in this case the fact remains that we have yet to see any semblance of consistency in our bench rotations. With everyone healthy those 4 men should be getting the most minutes off the bench each night. We will never put up 40 points a night from the bench like the Clippers but we do not have to stay as bad as we have been either.

    I agree, you could go with a number of options af far as the bench goes but I think it's time to pick 3-4 guys and stick to it. The inconsistency in minutes from bench players is insane.

    Sasha and Jeffries are the only guys who arent a liability when they're on the floor with our starters. Leonard disappears. Nolan is worthless. Claver has gotten as timid as his spanish counterpart Pau GaSoft. Freeland left his jumper in England. And Barton has yet to organize his chaos. We're definitely missing that in your face guy who calls guys on their blown assignments, and lets them know where they need to be.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
