Default My starting line & Bench so far...

In the BC interview he hinted that Kleiza & Amir would be starting & too me it makes sense only because Weems & DeRozan aren't ready to start together yet!

I say "yet" because like I have said before, 1 of them needs to develop a solid 3 point shot.

That being said this is my line up as of right now:

Jack/Barbosa
DeRozan/Weems/Beli
Kleiza/Weems/DeRozan
Amir/Davis/Dorsey
AB/Alabi

Now I know I didn't list the whole roster because I believe Jose/Banks & Evans are going to be traded before the season starts.

Now I'm really hoping for a GS Warriors trade!

Cause Ellis & Biedrins would be perfect for this team!!!

What does your line up look like?

Excluding Jose, so i expect him to be dealt for a Center and somehow we probably will use some of the TPE (either one) to get another PG. If so Bargs possibly slides to the 4.

Nice where are you hoping Jose goes & who do expect in return?

Bargs, Amir, Dorsey, Davis, Decent Rotation Center X, Kleiza, DD, Sonny, JJ, Barbosa, Belinelli, Jose/Banks looks like a pretty good 12 player active list to me. Alabi goes to the D League. Sorry Solomon, maybe next year you'll make the team!

Evans + Banks/Jose for a C/PF or Evans + Banks + Jose for a C/PF + PG seem to be the ideal trade scenarios. It's that or we hold on to the expiring contracts and try to make a big free agent signing next year.

Personally, I don't think BC is holding his breath for a big name free agent, and if I were him I wouldn't mind holding on to Jose until his trade value goes up a little, he becomes an expiring, or even until he can no longer play in the NBA. Jose's got value as a teammate, and you really need to get something significant back if you're trading him away. He's an expensive back up, but he can really produce in that role.

Jack/(Banks/Jose)
DeRozan/Barbosa/Bellinelli
Kleiza/Weems
Bargs/Amir/Davis
X/Dorsey

As much I don't like burying Belinelli deep into the bench, that rotation looks like how it should be as of now Windex.

Burying Belli deep in the bench is needed, but it shows how much depth we have at the two spot, and don't forget, Marco can play some spot minutes at PG as well if need be. His ball handling is extremely underrated.

I really hate the idea of giving Barbosa minutes at the 1. His PG skills just aren't good enough for a team that doesn't have anyone who's proven they can make their own shot. Nor are there any real proven ball distributors in the lineup outside of Jack/Banks. It's nice that guys like Barbosa and Belinelli can drop the odd dime here or there, but they are not equipped to run an offense.

On the assumption that Jose is shipped out we'll need to get another legit PG (I'd be comfortable giving Banks backup minutes myself, but Triano doesn't seem to like doing that unless he's absolutely forced to).

I'm all for giving Barbosa minutes at the 1, if we can acquire someone in the 2/3 position to help him handle the ball. Even if there is no one else to handle the ball, I'd still put Barbosa at the 1. He's a good defender, but he is way to short and small to handle most of the 2s in the NBA today.

I'm confused though. What is the advantage here of playing Barbosa at the 1 when Banks has proven he is capable of handling PG duties? Banks plays better D than Barbosa and has shown he can run the point without things falling apart.

It's not like Barbosa would be move to the PG spot because we are clogged at SG with capable players. Beli's ass should be glued to the bench all year, Barbosa can take all the minutes that Demar doesn't use up.

I guess I'm assuming Calderon/Jack will get moved. If for whatever reason the doesn't happen, then we should play Barbosa at the 2.

I'm not confident that Banks can handle a team. His passing was a bit off last year, and he relied on Turkoglu to make plays for him. So since Barbosa and Banks both have difficulties handling the ball, I'd rather Barbosa since he's better than Banks overall.

I feel that - I'd just hope that if Jose is moved then we bring in another PG. I'm of the opinion that Bargs should stay at C, so to me the main need is grabbing a PG who can lock down the perimeter and be comfortable passing in either P&R situations or transition.

That would be very good if that happens.

But, realistically, I think that wouldn't be the case. If we're trading Jose, that team likely won't return a point guard. The only teams willing to take Jose are the ones that desperately need a point guard, like a Charlotte. If they're looking for a PG, why would they trade away a point guard? In my opinion, that would be counter-productive.

Yeah for sure - the other PG would have to be acquired from another team (not taking Jose) using the TPE.
