SG minutes

By mbmurr1 Posted in: Blazers
Who do you think will get the most minutes this season at the SG position for Portland? Matthews is paid the most, in my opinion Barton has the most "raw" talent, and Williams is very dynamic but coming off injury. At the beginning of the season I see Matthews getting 60% of the time with Barton 30% and Williams 10%. By the end of the season Barton 60%, Williams 20% and Matthews 20%. Before the end of the season I think we will trade Matthews for a first round pick, he is a great player but with Barton and Williams on his heels we can use the pick more then the player.

What are your thoughts?

  1. I think Elliot Williams will challenge Wes for starting role

  2. I also think Wes is great as a leader for the bench squad...great defense and a motor that won't quit. Elliot I predict will have an impact this season

  3. I think you're right when you say Barton is "raw." Which means he'll need some serious development before he's ready to consistently back-up or move into a starting role. I think Wesley will get the start and Elliot will be his back-up.

    Riverman, I agree that El will eventually challenge Wesley, but it'll take time. He's got the talent, he just doesn't have the experience yet.

    It'll be interesting to see what Stotts' philosophy is on developing younger players. Will he make them ride the pine with minimal minutes? Give them solid game time? Send them to Idaho?
