    To sit on the bench.

    He hasn't made a 3 since 4/17 and has missed his past 25 3s. He's hell bent on shooting them and has gone away from his mid range and post game unfortunately. He was great as a fill in starter for us. But right now, he's white hot trash offensively. Time to try the Trezz/Gasol lineup off the bench and give Kief 10 days off. He's been working with Handy on the shot. Maybe more of that and some rest will get him ready for the playoffs.

    I have nothing but respect for Kieff. He will figure it out and come up big in the playoffs once more.

    He'll be important in at least 1 series, but for right now he doesn't need to see the floor instead of Trezz. And now that Frank has sprinkled in the Marc/Trezz frontcourt, there's no reason for him to play right now.

    Unfortunately his three point shooting has fallen off the cliff. I do think he'll play well for us sometime in the playoffs. Meanwhile, what JSM said!

    Player/coaches doing work. Coach Kief was talking to Bron and/or AD every time GS was at the FT line.

    He’ll get some run again going forward in the playoffs.

    It what it is , Vogel is going with the names ( Drummond , Schroder, Harrell) over the impact ( Marc , Wes , Kieff) so far .

    Can't blame Vogel for sitting Kieff lately though

    Hopefully he'll get his chance again , some rest will be good and be sure he's staying ready

    I’d be happy to have Morris back. He seriously helped keep us afloat when AD was out this season.

    Wow am surprised and happy to hear he feels that way. Definitely a useful player for the money we pay him while Ballmer subsidizes the rest.

    Would gladly take Kieff back. I think he was underutilized all season and then put into the game expected to contribute when he wasn't getting consistent minutes. If he takes the vet minimum, it would be a great deal for both sides. I hope he can get 10-15 minutes consistently next season.

    Yeah, he was great as a fill in starter. He was unplayable after going back to the bench. Missing 30 3s. But he's tough and is much better than his salary. I thought he'd be too upset with his role to want to return. But I guess he likes his teammates and being so close to his brother. Definitely fine with him returning.
