  • Rotation

    Dwayne Casey said his going to go with a 9 man rotation. Lets say the starters are

    PG: Kyle Lowry

    SG: DeMar DeRozan

    SF: Landry Fields

    PF: Andrea Bargnani

    C: Jonas Valanciunas

    Who do you think has those others 4 spots?

    My guess

    6: Jose Calderon
    7: Ed Davis/Amir Johnson(I think this could change night to night. Depending on what they need)
    8:John Lucas
    9:Terrence Ross

    Kleiza and Gray have to be added in there. I'm not sure we're gonna see a ton of T Ross to begin the season. I also see Anderson getting minutes, so I'm not sure 9 works. I think he'd like to get it to 9 by playoff time!

    Dynasty King: RRNBADLS7
    Raptors: Larry O'Brien

      I think the rotation is deeper than 9.

      Match ups and the hot hand will play a big factor in who plays on any given night.

      Guys who aren't going balls out aren't going to play.

      While the Raps don't have or don't have much upper tier talent. Yet they don't exactly have bottom of the barrel either. Guys like Kleiza, Wright, and Gray are going to get opportunities this year. Casey has a lot of average NBA talent to work with.

          He said 10 would be pushing it. I think Gray will only see minutes against the big Centers(D12, Andrew Bynum, Andrew Bogut, Cousin and Marc Gasol). I could easily put LK a head of TR but, TR seems like his are best shooter outside of are pgs.

            Starters:
            Lowry
            DeRozan
            Fields
            Bargnani
            Valanciunas

            Next
            Calderon
            Ross
            Davis
            Amir

            This should be the most consistent rotation baring injuries or match ups.

              Kleiza or maguire should be in the rotation over JL3. Not enough room for 3 pg's

                Eddy deserves some minutes.. he's showing legit signs of improvement thus far. I'm liking the depth of this team

                  Dwane Casey will have his hand at the first unit, and the second unit. But really, depending on the opposing team, the 9-man rotation will differ.

                  If I HAD to choose 9-men to play thought it would go:

                  Starting Unit:

                  PG: Kyle Lowry
                  SG: Demar Derozan
                  SF: Landry Fields
                  PF: Andrea Bargnani
                  C: Jonas Valanciunas

                  1: Jose Calderon
                  2: Linas Kleiza
                  3: Amir Johnson
                  4: John Lucas

                  The reason I chose John Lucas over Anderson/Davis, was because of what I've seen him in Chicago, and the last 3 pre-season games. Not to mention, him and Calderon can play the two, so wing depth is not a problem.

                  But really, think about it. It's extremely hard not to go deep when Alan Anderson, Ed Davis, Aaron Gray are all still available. Alan is VERY capable of starting for the team, and Ed, Lucas, and Gray are solid back-ups.

                  The one thing though for me, is, it's extremely hard to pick out 9 guys compared to last season, where it was consensus:

                  (From the end of the year)

                  PG: Jose Calderon
                  SG: Demar Derozan
                  SF: James Johnson
                  PF: Andrea Bargnani
                  C: Amir Johnson

                  1: Jerryd Bayless
                  2: Linas Kleiza
                  3: Ed Davis
                  4. Aaron Gray

                  It took me 30 seconds to put out together last year's 9, compared to 5 minutes of trying to put the 9 for this season.

                          All guys should be used in the first month. Expect the 9 or ten to fluctuate quite a bit based on injuries matchups and performance. By Xmas there will be some sort of lineup surprises. Someone who fails to impress and someone who impresses but wasn't supposed to necessarily.

                          9 deep is fine but Casey doesn't even know who his nine will be until they play some real games.

                              I wonder if he meant 10 on any given night.

                              That is my only point.

                              Match ups and hot hands will dictate playing time, in my opinion.
