CAMP NEWS DUMP
The Bigs Rotation?
"Gentry left the starting center position open after being upset with Gortat during Sunday's practice but was happier with his effort Monday, saying, He was competitive. He gave me a hug for yelling at him (Sunday). He's OK. He'll be ready to go. And Robin has played well. Robin has had a good camp and those guys have really pushed each other."
Are we hearing the truth, or is AG pushing some buttons? Gortat spoke of competing for the starting job as opposed to assuming it's his, which is a good message to send, even if he doesn't believe what he's saying. And while he may have woken up (according to AG), it could be interesting to see Gortat coming off the bench. It would certainly help take the pressure off of Telfair/Price to have Gortat as a presence down low. Then again, if Lopez is playing well, does it really matter who is starting? The key here is chemistry, which Nash and Gortat now have from last season.
But back to the point at hand...Warrick...Could prove valuable should Hill go down with injury or sit out a game here and there. If Chill gets the starting nod, Dudz could slide to the 3, but then there's no depth at the 2. Enter your Warrick which is a poor defensive replacement for Hill, but a body nonetheless.
Practice bodies Hazell and Buycks were waived. Marcus Landry is still with the team.
