Coach Kenny Atkinson said that Kenneth Faried has not requested a buyout and that he's determined to find more playing time for him because he has earned it.
Atkinson said of Faried, "He’s been really good. I just hope we can get him an opportunity. He’s been fantastic. I don’t feel great about it, because he’s been fantastic. It’s weird, some guys, they check out. He hasn’t.” Faried is currently the third highest paid player on the team at $13.8 million but has only appeared in nine games at 5.5 minutes per. Even with the encouraging words from the coach, it is hard to envision Faried obtaining a consistent role going forward with the amount of depth the Nets have upfront and sometimes even playing four guards at once.
