Miles Plumlee: I Wasn’t Just a Trade Throw-in
The understated prize of the (Luis) Scola trade last month is (Miles) Plumlee, a player who was a part-time starter as a Duke senior and has logged 55 NBA minutes before turning 25 on Sunday.
“I know everybody’s excited about Gerald (Green),” Plumlee said. “Being his teammate, I know he has all the talent in the world, but people don’t realize I didn’t have to be part of the trade to make it work. I think it was more that they wanted me, and that’s a good feeling.”
