I will admit never went to practices, was never in the locker room but while Ethan was maybe the best player on the team he should have never been the primary point guard. Vernon at least seemed to know how to move the ball when he played.

Vernon did reasonably well for playing such short stretches at a position it takes time during the game to be comfortable at. The team usually looked like it had a better flow when he got to be the point. Sorry to see him go. But if you can’t get a legit chance in the games, then you have to find other options for PT.

This wasn’t much of a surprise. I never saw anything from him that would indicate he’d be more than a backup. That being said, I don’t think WT did him any favors not getting him some more time against the cupcakes. Hope he finds a good place to finish out his career.
Needed space for what? Yet more marginal talent? It's not like Tinkle's recruiting is getting any better.
Exactly. If you’re just trading players for others of equal talent you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse. No continuity, always re-inventing the wheel. I’ve seen enough.
Let Tinkle have a year or two unencumbered by nepotism. We are not in a financial position to let him go anyway, you might as well see what he can do with guys who are there for reasons other than family. I think I know how it will turn out, but this is a process we have to go through regardless.
