    I am beginning to wonder if he can be the sub behind Tucker and Capela
    I am really not liking Thabo or going smaller than that

    I think Harty can give size and activity
    He is not overly slow . . . . . I think he would be decent on Milsap and Gomez tonite

    He should be our backup C - and move Chandler to 3rd - we need Harty's game to move the bigs out of the paint.

    He is a career 33% shooter.

    Just don’t play sefelosha and Clemons should be over McLemore.

    I know D’Antoni doesn’t like young players but this is ridiculous.

    You don't think he can play along side Chandler or Capela?

    I don't really see it...you'll wear down the kid by playing him at the 4 i think, and in most of the matchup he would get burned anyway.

    It’s worth a try at some point. But even if not.... Sefalosha has been horrible.

    If love to see that. He can shoot 3's too. I think it would be fun against the bigger lineups to throw him in once in awhile alongside Clint.

    If we had a better facility to practice in maybe coach could see his true potential. With only one court —> coach only trust what he can see.

    He is our answer back/up 5/4. —> 18 - 22 Minutes per game.

    Clark is the answer back-up 3/4. —> Spot minutes

    Just play the youth so one can choose adjustments later on in the playoffs. One can’t make adjustments in a game without have full knowledge of what he/she has. Why have the roster if one doesn’t use it?

    They have both had really good games, but they just aren't good enough to be playing so many minutes. I hope we sign another Ariza type player or start experimenting with Hartenstein in a PF role. Clemons could take up some more of those minutes as well. The injuries to House and Gordon have shown what little we have to back them up.

    He's white, close 7 feet, and can sort of shoot the 3, off course DD wants to play him.

    That being said, I do think he deserves more minutes.

    Hartenstein shouldn't be a back up anything. START HIM! That said, I support any effort to get him more minutes so I'm here for this.

    yeah. Capela and Harty can be interchangeable at 4/5 on offense and defense depending on matchups

    reminds me of that guy on the heat

    Harty not a speed demon but he is decent. His height can intimidate
    Maybe even help on switching and rotating

    Hartyheart has replaced Dmo as the new white hope!

    Geez, **** that noise, just get a BIG that can hit a 3pt shot - that would help us so much that when teams pack the paint to stop the drive we can place a big at the 3pt line and get a clear look.

    My PREFERENCE is Anthony Bennett.

    But this is so much a STYLE of play and not a skin tone issue.
