Okay, we get it. Alec Burks isn't playing right now and it's making the natives restless. Utah Jazz head coach Tyrone Corbin has a problem that a lot of other head coaches wouldn't mind having -- having a lot of NBA quality players on his roster. Burks has played 2 minutes all season long, and that was in garbage time in a 19 point victory. He has not seen the floor since then. He's not injured, that we know of. He's not suspended, that we know of. He could quietly be both.
Burks is talented, but so far this season Randy Foye has been shooting very well. In the Zero-Sum game of Foye or Burks, right now going with Foye is not a bad call (unless you care about defense). This is possibly not a Zero-Sum game between Foye or Burks though. People have made suggestions to cut Jamaal Tinsley 's minutes, or DeMarre Carroll 's minutes. I don't know if there is an easy solution . . . but let's suggest a few, and have you vote on it.
UPDATE! David Locke just tweeted / posted this to twitter and Sulia. I don't know what Sulia is. But it's great. Check this out ladies and gentlemen!
In the situation where you are Tyrone Corbin, and for whatever reason, you MUST play Alec Burks (a hypothetical situation in a hypothetical situation), where do you play him?
No, I still don't find time for him. We're winning games, and our offense and defense looks great. (0 votes)
Play him spot duty at Backup PG until Earl Watson gets healthy (28 votes)
Play him spot duty at Backup SF, his efficiency and range trumps Carroll's hustle (29 votes)
Move Foye to the Backup PG spot, and put Alec at the Backup SG spot (82 votes)
Play minutes at Backup SG, but don't necessarily play Foye at Backup PG (45 votes)
Send him to the D-League -- we still have a D-League thing right? (5 votes)
NO ONE IN THE FRONT OFFICE IS THINKING ABOUT THE CORE FOUR! YOU ARE SILLY TO THINK THEY ARE! WHY WOULD ANYONE IN THE FONT OFFICE LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE AFTER SPENDING YEARS SCOUTING THESE PLAYERS BEFORE DRAFTING THEM! (34 votes)
