I don't dislike him for still being extremely raw - everyone's raw at some point. But raw players shouldn't be getting the kinds of minutes he's getting.
Offensively raw young players generally don't get that many minutes to develop because they generally are a liability on defense as well.
That's what makes Okoro different. He gives enough positive value on the defensive end that you can afford to give him time for his offensive game to develop. If you don't see him as a plus defensive player, then you likely wouldn't agree with that
Now, if the Cavs prioritize winning right now over the most rapid, best path for development of younger players, then they might give Okoro's minutes to an older player who isn't a long-term piece. But I think the Cavs are still prioritizing development at this point. They're willing to lose a few games this year to create a better team in future season.
