Default Rotation

Casey says he will have an 8 or 9 man rotation by the end of the week. Who do you think that will be to start off the season?

For my money:

Lowry (34 min)
Derozan (36 min)
Fields (33 min)
Bargnani (36 min)
Amir (30 min)
Calderon
Anderson
Davis
JV

that's pretty much what i think too, except sub in ross for anderson. unless ross chokes or anderson really impresses i think they'll give the kid the minutes.

Ross will be in an 8-9 man rotation way before Anderson

the 8th and 9th man will generally be a rotation of about 4 players depending on the game and matchups.... it's not really a straight 8-9 man rotation.

I still can't see how this is not a 10 man rotation

Lowry/Calderon
Derozan/Ross
Fields/Kleiza
Bargs/Davis
Big V/Amir

^ Every one of these players will get minutes every game, matchups will dictate how many along with level of play.


Limited minutes: Grey, Anderson, McGuire, Lucas, Acy

Yes, it will also depend on matchups, injuries and foul trouble. But I think to start, it might be a good idea to have a bit more experience in the lineup. i.e I can see JV in the tight rotation with limited minutes, but am not too sure Ross is up to that yet. Last year, I see them throwing him out there to learn. This year they have given themsleves little room for small errors in live NBA action.

A reporter asked about a 10 man rotation and Casey said that's a stretch, maybe they'll get to 9. Obviously he's not worried about hurt feelings, so since we likely know who the 4 bigs are and the 2 PGs are, you'd think versatility will allow a guy to crack the 2/3 rotation (Derozan, Fields, Anderson?). I could see scrawny Ross getting manhandled/schooled by 2's and 3's early but maybe not so much Anderson.

That's a lot of minutes for Bargs given he's returning from injury. Remember what happened the last time Casey rushed him - 2 exciting wins at the expense of injuring a dude who'll looked like he'd finally turned a corner. 30 mpg would be ideal. Jose will get a few more minutes than the 14 (provided that we're strictly looking at Lowry/Jose). I think Ross will get some minutes. I love Amir but I think he'll get more like 24 mpg. I wouldn't be surprised to see Gray in the lineup early on just to set a tone (very few minutes obviously).

I have a feeling we'll be seeing this lineup 4-5mpg:

Lowry
Calderon
Derozan
Bargnani
Valanciunas

I think its possible but I rather see Ross & DeRozan paired together as two SG's instead of a two PG tandem with Lowry & Calderon for that time span. I guess it all depends on the matchup.

I want to see a full lineup substitution, with jose/ross/anderson/kleiza/JV coming off the bench, that would be a killer combination and would destroy most benches in the nba. In fact, that's a better lineup that our starters from last season when andrea was down with his injury ...

I'm betting whatever the case Ed Davis will be the odd man out. Last game he was tearing it up and didn't touch the floor again until the final minutes. I feel bad for the man what more does he need to do? He should be the first big off the bench(assuming Bargs and JV start). In any case Anderson should be getting more minutes than Kleza.

We need to trade Ed or Amir asap. Kleiza should be seeing time at the 4 in small-ball line-ups and I could see it happen when a mismatch necessitates it.

Lowry (30)
Derozan (30)
Fields(22)
Bargnani (33)
Valanciunas (20)
Calderon (26)
Ross (24)
Davis (20)
Johnson (23)

And Kleiza for (10)
Casey doesn't like him somewhy... But a good shooter, mismatch for other teams and scorer, we need him.
And yes, Calderon will be played at SG although I hate it a lot.

Calderon playing 8mpg @SG

Ross i don't think will play 24mpg, especially since it looks like Derozan & Calderon will be playing most of the minutes at SG.


We're all just guessing here so what the hell:

Lowry (31)
Derozan (34)
Fields (24)
Bargnani (34)
Valanciunas (24)
Calderon (23)
Ross (18)
Davis (14)
Johnson (20)
