I think Vonleh needs to get 26+ minutes a game

Vonleh looks like garbage right now offensively. He needs more strength and footwork before he gets that kind of time. He's a great rebounder, he's athletic in terms of running the floor, but he'll get manhandled by a true post scorer and conversely he doesn't have the strength to be an effective post scorer.
Offensively he's just too much of a liability to see that kind of time. While in college he did showcase a solid midrange game so that we'll come with time. As of right now he looks like he's just trying to adjust to the speed of the game so I don't think he'll have his legs under him to knock down the 15 footer consistently. It looks like he just focused right now on running the floor and getting back defensively. Which is good. But he's 18 and he's just not ready for the big time....yet.
Hairston on the other hand....I think he'll make more of a contribution this year, just because his body is more developed. I can see PJ as a 20 plus minute rotational player.
Vonleh.....I'd probably cap him off between 12-15 minutes game until he sheds his sea legs.
