Why are these guys not getting any minutes?

Pacers: Lance Stephenson, who played only 6 min

Twolves: Anthony Randolph, who wasn't even played for a single min

Hopefully IndyBBall can shed

Hopefully IndyBBall can shed light on the Stephenson situation.

Weird to only see Randolph with 3min of action.

  • Beasley 31min in 2 games played =19.5ppg
  • Johnson 28min in 2 games played = 6.5ppg*
  • Love 40.5min in 2 games played = 26.5ppg
  • Williams 21min in 2 games played = 8.0ppg

You may have an arguement to why he is not getting any burn, but do you really plug him in over Williams, who happened to be the #1 pick for the Wolves this year? I think not. Although Johnson plays the 3, it would be nothing to just slide him over to the 2 still. Who should he steal minutes from?

^ Agree with this. Randolph

^ ^Agree with this. Randolph has potential, but he is a black hole on offense. He does not pass the ball and is not a good enough player to play like that.

Because they are two guys

Because they are two guys that aren't that good at an NBA level, despite big fan followings and ideas of their "potential" haven't completely faded.

Lance needs to

Lance needs to keep his mouth shut and his nose clean, he needs work hard, buy into the Pacers' system and have a great attitude. Talent was never a question for Lance, the Pacers aren't going to reward him heavy minutes when there are other guys working their butts off to crack the roster, it sends the wrong messages all-round. Lance needs to smell the coffee, the Pacers can progress without him.

I saw Lance play about 5

I saw Lance play about 5 minutes in a pre-season game against the Bulls, and in those 5 minutes I saw him take 4 terrible shots. Fadeaways early in the possession with people right in his grill, just terrible terrible shots. Never looked to pass. He won't be playing much doing sh*t like that.

A lot of team are deep at

A lot of team are deep at some position and weak at others and there may be trades in the future when teams find out what players are worth keeping in their system. Beasley or Williams will have to go. Rubio will eventually start. Wes may get traded for a true two guard. Evan Turner needs to be starting on some team. George Hill needs to be moved because he is not going to get the minutes he should be getting playing behind Paul George and Darren Collison. I would love to see Lakers get him.

Anthony Randolph would work with the Lakers too. He could not do any worst than who they have already. Utah needs to move some of their bigs for a stronger shoot guard core. They also need a small forward with AK gone. I wonder where AK plays. Also Wilson Chandler, JR Smith, and Kevin Martin will be options come late Feb so you can see so teams waiting on that. Once Bledsoe is Healthy, Mo Williams needs to be moved.

I would love to see Andre Miller starting somewhere. Raymon Felton should find a way back to New York. Portland is not the right system for him and New York could use a playmaker of his caliber.

I was just watching Anthony

I was just watching Anthony Randolph play for Baylor.

The announcers, for some strange reason, kept calling him Perry Jo-

OH NO I DI'IN' GIRLFREN! OH YES I DI'ID!

@memphis tyga23 I don't know

@memphis tyga23

I don't know why Stephenson doesn't play...

The minutes behind George are there, but the Pacers are just giving them to Hill or even Jones. Stephenson should AT LEAST be able to beat Jones out, but hasn't. He must not be ready.
