And he's maintained the same rate of fouling in January as his minutes have increased.
Will the NBA also grant him a fouling exemption? Because he's on track to average close to 5.5 fouls in those 30 minutes that he'll supposedly be playing.
think Bass needs to be traded. This has very little to do with how Bass has been playing. It has everything to do with our rotation. Sully at center and Bass at PF is very fare from ideal. As the season has progressed it is now become obvious that KG is still our #1 big and Sully has surpassed Bass as #2. For the #3 big we need more length and shot blocking than Bass can provide. Udoh or dalembert from the Bucks could fit this role. Wilcox and Collins fit very nicely as our #4 and #5 bigs.
Who starts then? Dont tell me you think Dalembert will work starting and theres a chance the chemistry never even forms and we go on another slumping losing streak (Bass has chemistry with our starting unit dating back to last year he knows the Celtic's system). I think it'd be a big mistake.
Sully would start and play 30min a game, KG plays his 30, Dalembert gets 20, the last 16 are split between collins and wilcox based on matchup. The Cs are never left without length on the court.
Pretty much yes (4.5 fouls in 25 minutes in January, slight improvement, but still horrid)
Remarkably, between November and December his fouls went up while his minutes decreased. It's a real issue. You just can't afford to depend on Sullinger for major minutes right now.
Maybe it's not entirely a fault of his own (rookie treatment is real), but I've seen him made some legit boneheaded plays. Kid has a lot to learn still.
