Exactly. There are guys out there who can help out in the locker room as well as on the basketball court, like Udoka. Your glue / chemistry guy doesn't necessarily have to be the washed up wise Old Man River type.

Rasho is a perfect example - great veteran presence, seasoned player in the league, but can still give you valuable contributions on the floor.
