Quick has some hot-and-heavy speculation about a potential rotation change that might increase Rex's playing time.
Coach Nate McMillan might have provided that proverbial shot in the arm before Friday's practice in the form of a threat. In essence, he said this to the team: Unless I see more effort, and better defense, the rotation will be changed.
I asked Roy who he thought McMillan might be targeting. Roy said he had no clue. My guess?
Jerryd Bayless is about to get his shot.

Quick's piece is a perfect example of him writing as "talent" and not as a "traditional beat writer." Look carefully at what Nate actually said and then look at where and how Quick draws his conclusions.
