If Foyle is playing well enough, which for the most part he has been alright, then Diogu will have to get marginal sort of minutes so Foyle can still do his thing, but if Foyle starts to deteriorate or Diogu continues to be effective like he has been and also shows that he can be a defensive force (doesn't have to be to the level of foyle but close to it), then the move should be made to either start Diogu at PF and move Murphy to Center or only play Foyle for 20 minutes or so again and give Diogu much more minutes - Which ever looks best for the team.
Nevertheless, an ideal situation would allow him to develop at his own pace. Trust me, the Warriors will work him into the rotation when he's ready, but we don't want him to be forced in early by Adonal playing poorly or anything. Ideally, we want Foyle to hold it down until Ike can take over most of the minutes in the next year.

I feel as if the team has yet to really use diogu's ability to any major level or has yet to discover his abilities totally. Either way, Diogu is a player that can make a difference now as well as later
Ehhhh, no comment. I don't wanna say anything against our "Elton-Brand-in-training", but I dunno if his skill level is THAT high yet... he's good, but he'll be THAT good in a little more time.
