Default Kleiza vs. JJ

If you are one who believes the SF spot needs to be upgraded, it would likely mean a new logjam at 3 if they trade, draft or sign a high-skill SF.

On one hand, JJ defends quite well on a team that values defense and he is starting to realize his potential. He is also a cheap rotation guy.

On the other hand, we haven't seen the best of Kleiza here.
And we have to assume he will be an asset in the transition and orientation of cornerstone JV to North America.

I can't assume Jo Crewcut can't adjust quickly on his own. Jose did it, but he was older. Bargnani had godfather Gheradini.

It would be a waste to have one of them sitting on the bench if for example the managed to draft Barnes or MKG. Kleiza's a grizzled vet, but JJ has got to get minutes. So if you had to choose, who do you move?
