They are who we thought they were:
LEE: I really thought Lee would thrive under Stevens, but if anything he has regressed further. He has been given big minutes in the first two PS games and has shown us NOTHING. Very disappointing. His salary is excessive and his trade value is dropping faster than a marching band of drunk girls in stilettoes.
GREEN: Given the expectation as our new team leader, Green has, if anything, regressed to a backup role. His shot is off and he just doesn't seem to be part of the team on the court. I agree that Stevens needs to try him at SG (where we have a huge void) because he either needs to contribute at a high level or we need to get rid of him. Another big salary without production has his trade value dropping faster than Miley Cyrus's G-string during Fleet Week.
BASS: is Bass is Bass. A good backup at PF for alot of teams. But he is not a starter nor part of the rebuild.
BRADLEY: I want to give him more time to learn how to play the point... but I have serious doubts. He is not a SG, so if he can't play PG he is just a situational defensive player...
On the positive side. I'm pleasantly surprised so far with: Fav, Pressey, Wallace, Hump, Sully and to a leser extent, Oly (although we'll see a lot of improvement in the coming months).
Before its too late, Danny should start looking at moving a package of Green and Lee and separately Bass and Bradley. They should both fetch us some good talent.
