I think he is trying to play the way he was told to play.
He was told to play like shit? :chuckle:

There are 450 jobs available in the NBA, plus 30 two way contracts. That's it. He wants to stick, he'd better get his head out of his ass and fight for his slot, or someone else will take it and he'll have to get a real job.

He's got this year and next year as a contracted NBA player. Tick tock.

He somehow went from a confident shooter to not even considering taking a shot. He's playing himself off the team at this point. But at least Okoro is playing well so I'm not as upset.

In a vacuum, Windler has the full set of physical characteristics and skills to be a serviceable 3 & D guy in this league. He has some size and length, quick feet and can shoot... (apparently). He can even handle the ball without immediately turning it over.

But it's just not clicking for him. Why? You tell me. Sometimes guys just don't make it in this league and nobody really knows the reason. But the fact remains that JBB seems to think he's almost unplayable on this team. He does not trust him. He trusts his first 8 guys and Windler is not part of that group.

IMO he's clearly better than true end-of-benchers like Valentine, Pangos and Ed Davis. But right now that doesn't seem to be enough.

Mr. Windbag, Valentine, Pangos, and Ed Davis could all play for OKC and do better than a number of guys on the roster.

Not that that's high praise or anything... :)

I think he’s trying to play like he wants to be working at Chipotle…

Yea we know Guac is extra, Dylan!
He’d be the last guy I’d want rolling up my burrito. Shit would be looser than Tacko Fall’s handle.

Since Windler is not really shooting the ball and not getting any PT, I would have him work in the G league to get some PT and have him work on finding his shot more.

Windler gonna go down, drop 40 a game, make JBB look stupid. Come back up to the team and immediately get yanked for missing a shot. And that'll be the last of the Windler as a Cavalier.
So has JBB ever explained why this kid doesn’t see any minutes? Is Lamar Stevens better? Do we need Okoro to play more than 20 min? Just odd to me that he doesn’t get any run and because of that once he’s out there he’s playing scared. Does anyone know why? Does he just suck and I’m not seeing it? Lol

Guy needs playing time. A few weeks in AAA May be what It takes to get him going unless of course he gets hurt again
