Rodney Stuckey returns to rotation after Lawrence Frank deactivates him for something that happens ‘every single day’


Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News:

"Frank on Stuckey: “Things happen every single day. You deal with it and you move on.”"

"Stuckey: “we’re good. Me and L are fine. Sometimes you have disagreements.”"

"Stuckey: “we talked it out, said what we had to say and we moved forward.”"

"Stuckey is active, will play tonight and is in the rotation. Apparently the two had a talk yesterday to move forward."

I’m not going to harp on this after this post, but I don’t understand Lawrence Frank’s explanation. If whatever happened between him and Rodney Stuckey was truly something that happens ‘every single day,’ why isn’t Frank inactivating someone for disciplinary reasons every single day?* This incident clearly, in Frank’s mind at least, crossed a line.

*Maybe he’s doing that to Khris Middleton or Viacheslav Kravtsov, but I doubt it.

I’m glad Stuckey and Frank are moving on, and I am, too.
