so we are tanking?
In a sense, it may appear this way, but I don't think it is to get better draft pick odds. I think Monty genuinely wants to see what he has with his young fringe players (Henry, Rivers, Miller).
A big complaint from a lot of people on this board has been why doesn't Mason play that much even though he has been more effective than Henry and Miller as of late. I think Monty and Mason know that his future with this team doesn't extend beyond this season, we don't know that about Henry and Miller, so Monty is giving them the minutes to see if they can be apart of this team going forward.
