Until his injury, Beasley had started the Wolves' seven games. Adelman was asked before Monday's game at Toronto whether he has considered converting Beasley to a sixth-man role that might better suit his, uh, offensive proclivities."I've talked about that since the summer," he said, referring to internal team discussions. "Right now, we're just trying to get going in the season. That's something we've always talked about because we weren't sure how we were going to play. But it's something we're going to address. We're going to look at everything."
I mean, is it a step in the right direction? Maybe RA's trying to concoct the ultimate offensively challenged starting lineup. Maybe he's going to start playing battleship with different starters. Just waiting for the fateful day he sinks Wes' submarine...
Anyway, Killer Beas off the bench, yay or nay?
To save myself an extra post, my thoughts are that it'd be a failed experiment unless we decide to upgrade Rubio and/or Barea to the starting 5. I, like many of you, are pulling for Beas to get his shit together, but I feel like the last thing we need is Beas schruting up (The Office reference anyone?) our bench chemistry/ball movement. It's possible that maybe grouping Beas in with the best of our team will help him turn things around, but I'd rather him try to fix himself with the rest of our struggling string. Not only that, I really don't think Beas' ego could take that blow when his confidence is already visibly ailing.
Is it a good idea to bring Beasley off the bench?
