Barg's is the key to the season, no backup point or the wings, although Bargs is gonna spend a fair bit of time at the 3, wait and see.

The only way for Bargs to be truely effective is to be used to exploit defenses. Having him just be in offensive sets is going to create problems. If some smaller guards his, he is developing post moves to take advantage, if someone larger is guarding him then he already has a variety of skills on the wing.

One thing that this team in the preseason that the team is trying very hard is trying to have bigs guard smalls on the perimeter, this is a way to adapt the team defense to allow for three bigs on the floor at once.

If team defense can at least make it difficult on oposition and just not this incredibly pourus preseason defense then running with the 3 bigs on offense cannot be defended, relying on course on having confidence and better efficiency on offense.
