    Hilarious levels of cope in this post.

    Jalen is one of the least efficient starters in the NBA this year and he’s not a problem? My God man…

    You guys act like the team would be 25 and 2 if he wasn't on the roster. I count 7 wins that Jalen is DIRECTLY responsible for this season. You fools on this board are straight up clowns.

    Folks are actually not questioning this but Udoka has been secretly rooting for that kid but other coaches would not do that because they have no connections to him whatsoever, he is just another commodity to them.

    They will sort him out when he performs as he has been in December, it is a tough business.

    You guys forget the games where he straight up won the game for us. Nah, this board has horrible vision and gets very myopic when it comes to the player's overall sample size.

    He is at cross roads, that is what I meant, the Rockets have been coddling him for 2 years prior to this......he is not getting that love from other teams, definitely not.

    The fans like yourself have been coddling him for years. It is about time to get that wake up call.

    Aight. Just forget about that Memphis game, the Pelicans game, 3 of the 4 Denver games, the Lakers game where he scored 28 points in 21 minutes. Jesus. I could make a long list.

    You can cherry pick a few fluke decent games but overall Jalen has been REALLY bad this season.

    He's shooting 32.5% from 3, his TS% is 52.4%....both career lows

    The team is -10.6 when it comes to their offensive rating and defensive rating when Jalen is on the court....the worst of anyone that has played more than 120 minutes this season.

    He's a flat out bad player and he's detrimental to the team.

    I'm just as disappointed in Jalen as everyone else for all the same reasons. But I also think he's the type to need to hit rock bottom before he opens his eyes and realizes he needs to mature mentally and with his basketball game. It might take benching him and playing him fewer minutes, maybe even with some DNP-CDs, for the rest of the season. I wouldn't give up on him just yet though. He doesn't need to be a number one option, just a solid #3 option. I still think he could be a Jerry Stackhouse type of player.

    Lulz, no. Players that need to be benched in their 3rd year are failures. Players that want to win don't get worse every off-season.

    The harmony between Alper and Fred should not be disrupted, so even if Jalen is to be traded, I think the replacement player should be a player similar to Klay. If you go and bring a player who dominates the ball, both Alperen and Fred will be negatively affected here.

    The feeling is mutual.

    Jalen Green = Von Wafer.

    When you fail to shoot well, you cause your team to lose even if you score 20 - 25 ppg. Pretty much every player in the NBA can score 20 - 25 ppg with enough shots. Do you not understand that? He is an inefficient shooter which means he misses WAY more than he makes. I can assure you he is only starting so to not diminish his trade value. They know he needs to go as he is hurting the offense and not really helping the defense but until they can get the trade they want he has to continue to start. If they can get the guy they want by the trade deadline he's good as gone.

    You sound confident, where does your source come from that feel you can assure people with a certainty?

    Jalen and Jalen only fans are a perfect fit on the Pistons.

    Frequent 4th quarter benching of your starting scoring guard is as damning as it gets. Name any other starting shooting guard that you have ever not seen play in crunch time. He plays like hot garbage and Udoka doesn't want him out there. I can guarantee he's being told to keep him starting until they can trade him. If it was purely up to Udoka he'd be probably the 8th or 9th man.

    JG would flourish is a fast-paced system. At least that's the line I would sell to other teams.

    Ah, so literally none then? Yeah, you can't assure anybody with your assumptions, you're just speculating and using your confirmation bias to convince yourself you're infallible.

    Pacers and Nets would be interested. Green/Tate for Buddy/Jarace.

    Or Green/Nets Picks for Mikal Bridges. They could go all in on the Cooper/Boozer year.

    Jalen is 1 year away from being 5 years away.
