I'm not complaining because the team has played lights out so far this season, but I was really hoping McDaniels could be groomed into a poor man's Ariza but after getting a little run the first few weeks of the season, he has been mostly glued to the bench and I don't see him getting much better watching from the bench. Obviously D'Antoni prefers to have guys out there who can shoot(+Corey Brewer for some odd reason) so the question is knowing that is a deficiency in KJ's game, will he ever get any run barring an Ariza injury? Is he destined to be trade bait at this point? Seems like Dekker and Brewer get most of the minutes KJ could expect to get and while I agree with the valuable playing time Dekker is getting, I'm not sure what Brewer brings that KJ doesn't? ...just seems like such a waste to have a young athletic combo guy on a cheap contract sitting on the bench not being given the chance to improve while Corey Brewer is out there missing open 3s, is an unreliable finisher, and in general gambles on defense to create turnovers. KJ could do that plus be a much better finisher on the break. I know Brewer is suppose to be a "chemistry/locker room guy" and of course he is the ultimate out of nowhere hot streak guy, but if something ever where to happen to Ariza, we would be sunk if Brewer were the replacement and at least KJ has the opportunity to be a better version of Brewer. Thoughts? Am I overthinking this? It's a minor grip compared to an otherwise great job by the coaching staff this year but if I'm looking for small areas to improve, cleaning up that part of the rotation seems like a quick win.
