David Mayo of MLive.com is reporting some good news out of Charlotte today, prior to the Pistons' match up against the Bobcats: Vernon Macklin appears to be in Coach Frank's plans to close out the season.
Frank didn't say much, but he said enough to make me happy.
Vernon will get an opportunity, regardless [of being mathematically eliminated from the playoffs]. Regardless of what, we were going to do that anyway. So we have a plan of how we're going to incorporate him.
Up to this point, it's been impossible to know if his promising production in limited minutes was anything other than fluky randomness of a very small sample size. It looks like we'll get a chance to find out over the next couple weeks.
Kudos, Larry. This is a good thing for everyone.
