At least Sonny is going to fit into a makeshift running game if nothing else. Kleiza does not fit into those plans so much, and he is otherwise stuck within dysfunctional halfcourt sets, without the ability to make them remotely functional.
Eventually the team will need to learn how to play halfcourt.... Championship teams aren't made up of teams that can't score in halfcourt sets. Sure these supposed athletes are more exciting right now, but fitting roles now and fitting roles on a team building towards something are very different agendas.
