    He retweeted this Bleacher Report article about his impact, how Pau's defence is lacking, and how he deserves more minutes.

    It's subtle but the organisation surely wouldn't appreciate him endorsing an article which throws his teammates under the bus and gives him praise.

    He said no such thing. But he should be getting more minutes as the season progresses.

    He's becoming more foul-happy as time goes on. So that's going to be something he has to keep in check if he wants minutes.

    If he can keep his fouling down, then he should definitely get more minutes. As Chinook said, I've also noticed that he's starting to foul more, so he needs to keep that in check if he wants more minutes.

    Just 7 games in the season and Pau didn't close many of them, Dedmon will have more minutes...He just needs to be patient/keep improving.

    Do you realize that Boban won't come back...?

    Thanks for sharing.
    It carries beyond this season. If he plays well even within an 18 minute average, he's going to parlay that into a nice contract next off-season wherever it is, Spurs or elsewhere... He's going to earn his money in the postseason like Biyombo. Still a long way to go though....

    Exactly, and that's what's kept him from getting big minutes in the past. He's very involved around the ball, as evidenced by his rebound rate and block rate but that leads to fouls too.

    Rebound rate: Dedmon (22.1) is sixth to Bogut (25.7), Drummond, Howard, Chandler and Whiteside
    Block rate: Dedmon (8.8) is first, with only Miles Turner close to him. Davis and Whiteside are 3/4

    He's also 18th in DRtg and the only Spur to appear, so speaks volumes to how important his defense is.

    Much criticism is always placed on those who say the system makes players. Dedmon being first in block rate only goes to show the ease of the position for someone able to flourish.

    Not many leave the spurs and replicate their achievements.

    Yeah I always felt we'd struggle to keep Dedmon.

    Its a double edged sword really.

    I really want Dedmon back. I absolutely hate his contract with the Player Option. I would have loved to have had him for 2 years and then paid him if he showed he was worth it.

    He's looked good so far this season. He certainly should play at least 20 min a game. For some guys though, production drops with more minutes, so we'll see if it will for him.

    What 3? Did he actually hit one? I turned off a couple of those blowout games, so if he did hit one, I missed it.

    Dedmon can want more minutes all he wants, but that listless no name scrub doesn't deserve any. He should feel fortunate Popsickle even lets him see the court. If Popsickle wasn't senile Dedmon would be in Austin.
