The consensus here, which I would agree with, is as a primary scoring option off the bench. You limit the wear and tear and let him look for his shot without having to worry about disrupting the Jay's offense as much. I doubt he would be cool with being relegated to the bench but at this point I don't really care. If this version of Kemba persists, a change simply has to be made.It may be ugly, but I wonder if having him play the role that Tatum played last year as the single starter on the floor with the bench guys (or coming in with the bench guys), might be the best solution? That second unit is pretty much full of guys who can't or couldn't shoot, so letting Kemba bomb away and hopefully find his stroke might not be that bad. At least it isn't taking shots away from JB/JT.
His game is crap right now, completely agree. The question is, what's the best path to getting something useful out of him? Is it to have him switch to a reduced role or to have him try and shoot through it?
