Here's a thread to look at how other teams are rebuilding. Just reading a bunch of the comments in other threads and game threads, I wanted to compare the Kings playing time with other teams. My personal feelings are there are no absolutes when it comes to a rebuilding plan. Lots of differing strategies but the closest thing to an absolute is that the younger guys probably need to be getting some time....somewhere between 12-20ish minutes depending on how they are doing with some players getting upwards of 28-30 minutes, again it depends on how they are handling the PT. The one comment I've seen on the forum is that no one else is rebuilding like we are by giving minutes to vets the way Joerger is.....so here is what I saw when looking at other teams. I've shown ages followed by minutes. Chicago- Holiday (28) 34min. Lopez(30) 29min. 13 guys averaging in double figures in minutes per game. Although some might say Holiday isn't that old, he's been a journeyman who is shooting at a horrific rate. Markkanen is getting 30 min per...probably their highest ceiling young guy, lots of low ceiling young guys although Lavine will be back soon Dallas- Mathews (31) 35min, Dirk (39) 24min, Barea (33) 22min, D Harris(34) 18min, Noel (23) 12min...only 2 guys under 23 including Smith Jr who is getting good run but Barea and Harris getting solid minutes and Dallas' best young guys are also guards. I put Noel here as I was surprised he's only getting 12 minutes per game........similar to Kings with vets getting PT but way different when factoring in the ages of the roster. Kings went way more young Atlanta- bellinell(31)26min, Illyasova(30) 20min, lots of 28 year old guys on the roster but the young core of Schroeder, Prince and John Collins is getting good run.....I think Schroeders 3rd year IIRC. PHX- Chandler(35) 25 min, surprised that Mike James is already 27 as is Monroe 27....thought Monroe was older. I believe we will be similar to Phx in 1 or more likely 2 years in that our young guys will finally be up to more minutes. Chriss and Bender, 2 of their youngest at 20 min per, are statistically bad and Phx who started rebuild before us has about the same record....fwiw Brooklyn- the hot mess that is the Nets is going in the right direction but its going to take years to recover from earlier deals. Carroll (31) 30min, T Booker (30) 22min, not terribly young but they do have DLo Russell Philly- we all know the process and whether you agree with it or not they do have 2 young franchise players in Embiid and Simmons. They are different this year as they are ready to win. The year before during the process, they were giving 22-28 min per game to Illyasova, G Henderson and Sergio Rodriguez.....the year before that, lots of 23-25 guys in a well documented tank. Kings- Hill(31) 26min, Temple(31) 25min, Zbo(36) 24min, Vince(41) 12min in only 13 games......13 guys averaging double figures in minutes with the remainder of the roster very young except for Koufos who surprisingly is only 28. Just looking at most rookies who are actually getting some run, most are getting the 20ish minutes give or take. There are some who are getting around 30 but usually not the norm.
