Anyhow, the roster will be set once that final veteran is added via free agency. We're just assuming that Roko will fit in nicely to our plans but for all we know he could be a huge disappointment and what then? Roko will have to compete for that back-up role in my opinion. He can't just take it for granted like some of you have.
Yes --- lemme rephrase that for you... I "hope" we go to an 8-man rotation! We are like most teams now with 1 starting point guard.... without TJ... Jose will have his minutes go to ~35 mpg or more....
QUESTION: when TJ was out... how many minutes did Martin play? For discussion purposes... Martin was there to bring up ball and make sure he doesn't turn it over... and most importantly... give Jose a breather!
Having said that... the more we talk about this
... the more I think we need that experienced PG to ensure the ball is taken care off!
Carroll would be a nice to have then... on the injured list
