Although he has yet to play more than seven minutes in a game this season, 76ers rookie Arnett Moultrie is likely to hear his name called more often, especially if the team's big men continue to be inconsistent.
Moultrie has not played more because coach Doug Collins trusts his veterans. However, Collins has spoken highly of Moultrie, a 6-foot-10 power forward acquired in a draft-night trade with Miami. Moultrie was the 27th overall pick by the Heat.
"If we were in a situation right now where we were just playing and trying to develop young players, he'd be out there and probably getting 20-25 minutes a night," Collins said Wednesday. "We're trying to win. To do that, you have to go out and use your experienced guys."
