hiding DJO?

Postby hollywood swinger on Fri Nov 30, 2012 3:51 am

who here thinks Mitch may have had Mike Brown and now MDA hide DJO with the thought that he knows he wants to move Gasol at some point and doesn't want to showcase DJO as a young talent throw in for a team to absorb Pau's contract? It's hard to believe that a high energy athletic pg that can finish and that we could have been using or at least given a chance while Nash was out simply has gotten zero chances to play with the main core of players during a game. I bet that once the Gasol trade finally comes down now or later you will see this kid get a chance. He looked like a legit nba talent in the D-league game this week.

I don't think so. Most scouts gather info on these guys for years. I'm sure NBA people know all about DJO.

DJO went to Marquette and he's had a lot of exposure. Even his teammate at Jae Crowder is getting some attention on the Mavs, and he was drafted & traded as a 34th pick.

If DJO and Crowder turn out to be decent pros, more than likely scouts underrated them (by overrating them) for going to a high-profile school and playing with other high level recruits.

There have been bigger misses in the draft, so I think it's entirely plausible Mitch is hiding him. Directly related to Pau deal? Who knows... 2nd round picks like DJO are thrown in all kinds of trades, sometimes for just salary dumps/picks.

But I think developing Morris had more to do with it.

Wishful thinking. He is who we thought he was.

The little I've seen of him he does't look like he fits at this level. He may have athleticism but he seems to be lacking in skills.

same could be said of Morris at times and yet he keeps getting big minutes, for a PG he doesn't have great handles, doesn't have a consistent jump shot, doesn't get by his man even if he gets a screen....only decent thing bout Morris is he can keep up with the quicker guards at times other then that I dont see much to think he's a NBA caliber player either.

^^^DJO could be put out there with the starters and the same result could come, which is little to nothing just like Morris.

if they were trying to hide DJO, dont you think they would just keep him on the active roster sitting at the end of the bench getting his average of 1 minute per game INSTEAD of shipping him to the NBDL so he can showcase and score the 30+ points he got yesterday?

At this point if you and I won a contest to sit on the end of the Lakers bench for a day we could get playing time at Point Guard..... yeah.... it's that bad..... :man10:

I really don't understand why we don't give DJO a chance at the moment since our Blake and Nash are out.
He played college ball for a couple years so he can't be that raw. We are in a win now mode, what is the point of trying to develop a 2nd rounder with low potential? Either he can help this team during the end of Kobe and Nashs years or he can. We should give him a chance while our points are hurt. Either he sinks or swims. If he can't help this year we need to bring in a vet that can ala D West or CDR

He's a young undersized shooting guard with very little NBA experience. Not what we need right now.
