Good question, although I wouldn't have Jose there, as that would make our perimeter defense beyond atrocious.

It would have to be someone who can shoot the three, defend well and distribute well. Maybe someone like Brandon Knight, although his distributing skills are suspect.

That's the problem with Ellis. He's not a point guard, but it's hard to find one that would maximize his talents. If our interior defense was good enough, we could maybe get away with having Jose there, although his 3-point shooting has declined over the years.
