They really didn't. When he was getting time, he was stuck playing center in a small-ball line-up with two pretty poor defenders and no real PG. Never got any significant minutes with any starters. Doc never tried to use a traditional back-up line unit with Smith and Aldrich. Was set up for failure, basically.
And that kind of thing is a consistent pattern with coach GM/Doc. Not a coincidence that since he's been GM, virtually all of Doc's offseason acquisitions have been traded/released the following year or even during the season.
(I can't remember whether Doc was responsible for getting JJ. If he was, that's the exception to the pattern).
