Maybe I'm seeing things, but did Lance seem more animated on the sideline and more "in to" the game than normal?
I saw the same thing. I noticed before yesterdays game the cameras always focused on him when he was moping or discouraged. Yesterday was the first game I saw him when they showed him encouraging everybody.
I thought Lance played very well. I know at least 3 assts that he could have had with somebody decent taking some shots. Im still on board (barely) with Lance and I feel like we should give him time.
Ok we know that the Lance experiment seems to be coming to an end but here are a few things to think about...
1. What's the harm if we got him in FA (free) and flip him for a project (Lamb type)? Basically it would be like getting a young prospect in FA. Now I don't think we should take on much $$ in the process but us being aggressive in FA gives us some assets to try and flip.
2. He must truly be malcontent if we are not giving him time to adjust to a new team with all these injuries. I think this has to do with attitude more than performance.
3. If we can't flip him for anything what's next? Im sure he can't be too happy and that will affect his performance.
