Coach Byron Scott made the surprising change in his starting lineup on Wednesday, inserting the red-hot C.J. Miles and benching rookie Waiters. Scott made the decision on his own, although General Manager Chris Grant didn’t try to dissuade him.
Scott said he wasn’t punishing Waiters or trying to get his attention and others around the team insisted Waiters has done nothing wrong. This is simply Scott’s way to try and bring “balance” to a 7-25 team.
“I’m just trying to find some balance and make us a better basketball team,” Scott said.
“Like I told Dion, this is not permanent,” Scott said. “I still have to figure out what’s the best for the team. Not the individual, what’s best for the team. That’s the most important part.”
