Karl Won't Make Playing Time Decisions Based On Contracts
George Karl is unconcerned with how much his players make, particularly in reference to the center position.
JaVale McGee was re-signed in the offseason and makes significantly more than Timofey Mozgov and Kosta Koufos.
"I have no idea. The perfect scenario would be that JaVale would get (minutes) in the high 20s and Kosta and Timo in the low 20s, but I'm not going to predict anything. I'm going to go coach to win games, not to play big guys."
Karl was then asked about McGee being the Denver Nuggets' big offseason signing.
"You think that's ever influenced me? You think I give a (darn) about what they make? You honestly think that bothers (me)? The only time it's good to know what the players make is to demand they play like a $10 million player," Karl said.
