    This was tweeted last night. I furrowed my brow when I read it.

    There is ZERO reasons why Niang was not assigned to the squad in January for the length of the season. Putting him down there tonight for one game and then recall him for Tuesday's game is B.S. Next season is going to be rookie season 2.0 because he will have almost no legitimate on court time with us. Garbage time IMO almost matters like nothing as it is generally just two min. of D league level play at best.

    I can only assume this is Nate because Frank would assign players to the D league.
    I am becoming increasingly unhappy with TPTB. To my eyes they are starting to appear inept. And I am talking mainly at the top.

    Not sure what's up with the Mad Ants. I just started watching at the start of the 2nd quarter. Hansbrough hasn't played yet. It's a weird starting lineup of Zeisloft, Niang, Bentil, McKinney-Jones and Teague.

    It's not an insignificant game, the winner gets the 3rd seed.

    Hicks, Loyd, Hansbrough and Leslie haven't played yet.

    Put Niang on a team that has more off ball motion and he'd flourish. Indiana isn't that place at the moment.

    That was a fantastic 4th quarter. Really fun to watch. Niang is such a creative scorer, I can't wait to see his highlight video from this game. His outside shooting was off, 3 of 11, but he was amazing around the basket.

    We played our second string. Not sure why. Ben Bentil started at center but Adam Woodbury ended up with more minutes and 17 rebounds.

    Larry Sanders played off the bench for them. 16 rebounds in 18 minutes.

    Here's Niang's highlight video:

    The Mad Ants play Maine in the first round. If this is true, maybe it will make up for us losing Poythress.

    Here's an article talking about why the Mad Ants coach rested his main players tonight.
    http://www.journalgazette.net/201704...thinking-ahead

    And he ends the article with this tidbit:
    By the way, Niang is expected to remain with the Mad Ants for the playoffs, unless there's an injury with the Pacers.
    It'll be interesting to see how Hansbrough and Niang are used together.

    Glad to see Philly is letting Poythress play.

    Huge game from Tyler in a game 1 loss. Nader got the better of Niang in the battle of ISU cyclones

    I guess you all heard that AP got signed for the remainder of the season. So we won't be getting him back during the playoffs. I'd guess Philly will have his GLeague rights next season.

    I think its for the end of the season for one game due to injurys. I don't believe its for a longer period.

    Ants are done . Niang and Hans were solid. Bentil gave nothing.

    Poythress with a big game for Philly

    Larry really messed up by not giving this kid a chance.

    The problem we had is we would have had to cut a big guy to make room. We can all say just cut LaVoy but until recently LaVoy was our best big off the bench. It was a much easier said then done move.

    Well I believe he was not signed to a numbers contract. Meaning he isn't under contract as a Sixer next season. I believe they can't sign him to a team numbers deal until free agency in July. Right now he's probably on their D-league team or something. So if Larry wants to poach him back this Summer he can.
