I'm of the opinion that Weiss was never known for his defensive awareness, and maybe Babcock is sending a message by demoting him...Then again I've been wrong about alot of stuff so - what do I know?
Any scouting report I've ever seen on Weiss mentions his two way game and defensive responsibilities. But I don't know either. That's why I'm irritated that nobody has bothered to ask or write about it. You've got a 5 million dollar player getting 7-10 minutes a night, AND he wasn't playing bad before getting benched. It's a head scratcher.
