I believe the only reason he is starting is because Bill Walker is out of the rotation, yet he would provide more of an impact because he is a good rebounder and can actually hit a 3 point shot.
The other reason is because Amare is out and we need rebounding which is one of the few things Fields is good at.
The biggest reason is because Mike Woodson wants some scoring punch off the bench in JR Smith and coming off the bench allows Jr to be the focal point on offense for the 2nd unit. Jr cant throw up as many shots if most of his minutes are with Melo and the soon returning Amare.
Seeing FIelds shoot an outside shot makes me shake my head because if he makes it, we are VERY lucky. I would rather have Tyson CHandler shooting the ball than FIelds because from FT range Tyson is better.
How is it possible that a SG is terrible at shooting 3's and free throws? He is not a shooter!
Fields is a small forward that should play backup to Melo whenever Melo gets too tired.
Fields should play a range of 8-15 minutes a game as a role player.
Bring in Fields when you have offensive players with him.
When Amare returns we should start:
