Malcolm Brogdon was moved to the bench for Saturday’s loss to the Heat and it didn’t work out, as he hit just 1-of-10 shots for four points, two boards, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes.
Golf clap to Jason Kidd. Jabari Parker (16 points, seven boards, four assists, one steal, one block) was moved to the bench for violating a team rule and maybe that spurred the change, but either way it took an extremely stable asset and put it on fritz. Owners shouldn’t panic but it’s definitely a situation to monitor. Matthew Dellavedova started and logged 36 minutes, scoring 15 points on 5-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with two boards and seven assists. He took advantage of the move but much like Brogdon, owners shouldn’t move the needle too quickly here.
