Reality of Derrick Williams trade ideas.

Okay,

Here's the deal. I'm not usually one to speak up on such matters but this one I think finally needs to be put to rest. People (not everyone...but some people) keep introducing the idea of the need or the possibility of a Derrick Williams trade this year. "He's not good enough... he's not what we were hoping for with the second pick... what's his trade value? ... Why doesn't Adelman play him more?... He's not as good as he was in college" and so on and so forth. Here's the reality so we can cease all of this discussion and move on: Derrick Williams is NOT going to be traded this year. He probably won't be traded next year or the year after that either. He's supposed to be a building block of this team. You can continue to talk about a Williams trade but it IS NOT going to happen! You can talk about Randolph, Beasley, Tolliver, but Williams is not in the trade conversation. Furthermore, why is everyone jumping on this guy's back all the time? He's on the bench behind the guy with the highest average minutes in the league, he's only averaging 18 minutes a game, AND he's a rookie. Yeah, I understand that he was the number 2 pick and his 3's have been off but give the guy a break. We're 25 games into a condensed season with about 3 weeks of training camp and very little practice time. Just because he's not Rubio doesn't mean that he won't be good. Is that our patience level nowadays?! Really?! We give some rookie 20-25 games to be a star and then start yelling for a trade? You expect a rookie bench player to come in and put up 25-10 every night? Give me a break! He's not getting traded. Enough about that already!
