Matt Steinmetz of CSN Bay Area suggests that letting Aaron Miles might be a direct result of Jeremy Lin’s partially guaranteed contract. With the Warriors in dire need of a back-up point guard and Jeremy Lin clearly not ready to fill that position, Steinmetz wonders if Jeremy Lin is becoming a problem for the Warriors:
But that still leaves a problem at the point. If Lin isn’t ready, and he isn’t – or if he winds up in the D-League in early November – it means the Warriors don’t have a backup point guard on their roster.
Heck, you could make a case the Warriors don’t have a true point guard on their roster at all – that is if you are of the belief Stephen Curry isn’t a true one. But whether he is or he isn’t, one thing has been obvious in the preseason: The Warriors struggle to get into their offense when Curry isn’t on the floor.
