DJ was so promising, I remember the scrimmage at the end of training camp his rookie season in Wilmington, he nearly broke GW's ankles twice on moves to the basket. He was young carefree and just worried about playing ball. Last season, I'm not sure where his head was, that was his mulligan.
I wish him the best, but the circumstances are entirely different from when Felton was starting his 3rd season.
Still, one bad season under a coach that clearly has some sort of issues with him AFTER he's already had one solid year... it doesn't make any sense at all to give up on the guy.
Off the top of my head, I can remember DJ absolutely working Derrick Rose in their rookie year.

Rose on 12/16
There's just one example
