Backup PG


Who would you rather see get the backup PG minute? Rivers or Roberts? I think giving the minutes to rivers would be the best thing seeing as Roberts is probably just as bad at running the point. At least we would give rivers the chance to learn and improve

re: Backup PG


Rivers and Roberts have both shown flashes this year at times.

To be honest i see roberts as more of a 2 than a 1 due to his ball handling(or lack thereof). Rivers NEEDS to improve his FT shooting badly if he wants to be successful PG.

I also wouldn't be shocked to see us sign a cheap vet in the offseason. As for your question i'd give it to rivers but they both need work imo.

The answer to your question is Trey Burke.

It'll be interesting to see if we do this because we will have a legit shot at the playoffs next year barring injuries or some foolish trade. So will Demps sign a vet to play backup or will he let Rivers continue to develop? While playing Rivers in limited minutes makes since right now, it isn't something they should continue to do next year if they expect him to develop.

That is the big question.

IMO they should sign a veteran pg who can play some defense and also handle sporadic playing time as they develop Rivers. Perhaps even mentor him a bit. No idea who that guy could be.
