    BB reference tracks it. I trust that more than a player profile. Do we know for certain what ESPN had him listed as the past few seasons?

    With as much as Pop protects minutes allocated to shooters in this team and having had favorites such as Bonner in the past, it remained puzzling to me Popís reluctance to play Davis more.

    In 2016-17 when Kawhi made his move to sit out the season, Rudy Gay also missed a good chunk of time with bursitis (people now forget that) and Danny was injured at times that season too. Pop played Anderson (who also was injured for a time), and Bryn as wings. It puzzled me then that Pop didnít play Davis as much. In fact it wasnít until around February or March of that season when they suspected Kawhi wasnít coming back for the rest of the season, that Davis got playing time. He was going to be a FA that summer so I thought, sneaky CIA Pop move to keep Davis from exploding in the FA market bc they wanted to re-sign him.

    They did sign him in the summer but having let go of both Danny and Kyle, while adding only Marco to the wing crew (and rook Lonnie Walker who was destined for his token gleague stint), Pop still kept Davis in the deep bench to start the season and he still oscillated in role. It always felt to me that he should have gotten at least as many opportunities as Bryn got.

    Surprise surprise, Davis Bertans is a SHOOTING forward not a POWER forward.

    The SF the Spurs need starting is playing in Washington. What a miss by PATFO

    By the way: F*****g Morris

    BB position tracker is bull , tbh. If Bertans and Hachimura share the court they will say that Bertans plays PF while the rookie plays SF, when it's actually the other way around.

    Frakken sux man! Davis is having a great year. All these guys need is playing time! Very few players are elite under any cir stance.. the rest just need support and PT. You are damn right the guy will fetch a low first rounder. Which college player today is guaranteed to give what hes doing?

    I think bertan needed the right coach to get him loose. Can you imagine what Walker would do if he has a long leash?

    horry also complained about pop overcoaching players and forcing them to fit into a box instead of doing what they do. manu is the only guy i've actually seen off the leash

    Playing at a faster pace in a system that does not have as its main function to feed a post player. This is what really helped Bertans.

    Notice how the score gets closer when Bertans gets into the game. Pop screwed up big time by not realizing the type of player he had in his hands, tbh.

    Not sure the SF/PF argument really matters, depending on matchups with a Bertans/Hachimura lineup. I think a lot of it has to do with who is playing with/around him. When he is paired with Hachimura (his size/athleticsm makes him a versatile defender) it allows the Wizards to choose who Bertans defends (SF/PF) based on matchups. So at times he is playing SF in offensive sets, but defending PF on other side, while also sometimes playing SF at both ends, & occasionally playing PF on both side of the ball. Funniest thing about ESPN Wizard's roster is listing Moritz Wagner as a SF

    Bigger issue is I don't think the Spurs roster allowed same flexibility, although maybe it could have this year with Demare/Bertans. Most likely still wouldn't have been great as Demarre has mostly looked like he has lost step or two

    A step? Demarre looks like he's lost a leg or two.

    yep

    its not just the minutes, either, he generally has much more of a green light in washington. he's only 7 more minutes per game than last year but his 3PA are nearly doubled. he's been even more accurate, too.

    He's averaging 14.9 points per game, his 3-point attempts have doubled and his shooting percentage still increased, shooting 46.4% on 3s. Impressive what good coaching can do to players.

    I'm just baffled at what is that Pop sees that he has no problem giving a limited guy like Forbes 35 minutes per game despite awful metrics in both offense and defense (untill this season, where he's being a plus on O. Not as much as Bertans though) but keeps treating a clearly more influential player like Bertans like a ing scrub.
    If you can't understand why Forbes is playing and not Bertans, I don't know what to tell you. It's really freaking obvious. Anyways, Bryn has better impact stats than Davis does. No idea where you're getting contrary information.
    This is the type of sniffing mentality that got us to this point, tbh.

    Bertans was shooting lights out in the middle of the season for the Spurs too then went through a dry spell later in the season. Wins and losses wise, Spurs were a playoff contender and Wizards are still losing. He's a great shooter but he's not moving the needle enough for me to be completely devastated. Morris screwed us over more. Still excited to see if we make the playoffs this year and if not, our forst lottery pick in ages!
