Sigh...Doc won't even play the [dang] dude. Might as well start him in any of the next three games we'll most likely lose -- maybe he'll be this year's Stiemsma, who knows?

LOL...  The guy SUCKS - flat out stinks.  Shoot, the Heat kept the worthless Dexter Pittman over him on their roster.  Nothing more than a D-Leaguer...

Doc did let Stiems play right? It's not like Doc was forced to play him.

I don't question him as a talent coach.

The only thing I don't like is how we still slow it down and play like it's 2008 when we have 3 of the best shooting hall of famers and Perk. But I still think he's up there, the 2nd, 3rd, 4th best coach in the NBA currently.

Why do you guys think every D-Leaguer is a hidden star that "Doc won't play?"  I love prospect-watching as much as anybody, but you guys take the homerism (and the Doc-hate) to the point of absurdity at times. 

Varnado is on the team because they took a flier on him.  They analyze him in practice, not in games.  In the meantime, he's a warm body in case of an emergency or junk time. 

He likely won't play meaningful minutes for us.  If he does pan out, it's probably a few months later, when he understands our scheme well enough to not kill us when he's on the floor.

I don't think think that every D-Leaguer is a hidden star, but I am adamant that the D-League has some players who could step in almost immediately and be a solid rotation player for a team with legitimate championship aspirations.  Based on the numbers, I might have preferred a guy like Brian Butch, but I feel like the best of the D-League offers more upside than your typical veteran retread who once was very good but is now on the downside of his career.

I am ready to get rid of him.

I don't think Varnado offers enough. I didn't like how easily he was pushed around defensively in the spot minutes he has received so far. I think there are better big men out there who can offer the team a lot more (like Kenyon Martin or Chris Andersen).
