RC Buford responds to questions about Nando DeColo

Q: Gregg Popovich said recently that Nando De Colo requested a trade earlier in the season. Were you exploring a trade all season, or did the deal with Toronto (traded Austin Daye to the Spurs for De Colo last month) just pop up last minute?

RC Buford: I mean we looked for opportunities to help our team. There were times when Nando was playing a significant role that made it more difficult than other times because of injuries and such, so when opportunities became available that allowed us to help Nando accomplish his goals and give us an opportunity to look at Austin and see if he might be able to fit; I mean, often times things happen closer to the deadline than most, but it doesnít mean that you were pursing it any harder or any less hard earlier than that. Itís just, people tend dance toward the deadline.

He seems to be getting even less time in Toronto. I wonder what "goals" Nando is trying to accomplish.

Sometimes players have to move on to figure out that their playing time is more tied to their ability to perform than what team they are on or who their head coach is.

"He sucked."

No further explanation needed.
