Stat was great till he hurt his back...IS THAT WHY HE'S WASHED UP...he should not start. He can't be traded at 18 million/yr.I know you guys don't want to see any trade scenario with Stat, or see him off the bench. His his attributes offensively is 2ndary to his defensive difiencies on perimeter forwards. If he is a team guy he will accept his role with the 2nd unit to bring balance off the bench Knicks can have a consistant rotation. It gets him out of foul trouble and he still get his minutes
How does A Stat as bad as a defender he is gets into foul trouble? His best position is backup center
Novak needs to get the roation. Fields defensive attibute is also 2ndary to his flaws offensively on the perimeter, I would give his minutes to Walker for now.
MDA alsdo needs to make sure either chandler or Jeffries is on the court but never together under any circumstance.
Bibby is another that should be out of the rotation although his shooting has gotten better, I don't know why this guy can't bring the ball up everytime. He wants to play the off guard forgetting he got into this league as a PG.
Until BD comes back lineup and rotation to give both units balance
Shumpert for Douglas
Walker for Novak
Jorts for Jeffries
Chandler for Stat
Melo for Stat
But the best solution is still trading stat. We improve our backcourt depth and overall depth. Its going to be at a point where we get less and less value as time goes on if we don't trade now. His name still carries value more so than his game. But eventually the word will be out that he is washed up.
