Default BrotherSteve's Blog: Starting Shooting Guard Dilemma

However, starting Antoine Wright leaves DeRozan, the next biggest Raptors’ wing, as the most plausible backup to Hedo Turkoglu at small forward. The rest of the Raptors’ wings are not really small forward candidates.

So while it might be nice to start the more seasoned Antoine Wright at shooting guard, the edge still belongs to DeMar DeRozan.

Besides, Jay Triano has made it very clear that just because someone starts it doesn’t mean that they will play the most minutes. And somehow Triano just wasn’t very convincing in his attempts to say the starting spot still hasn’t been decided.

Expect the rookie DeMar DeRozan to get his on the job training in the NBA as a starter.
