    I sense we have too many guards and wings, but not enough bigs.

    Lowry, Fred, Wright, Kawhi, OG, Green, Miles, Powell.. that's 8 guys in our rotation that can't play center or PF (I guess OG can play some 4 but that's not ideal).

    So it's going to be hard for us to split minutes. I could see us upgrading one of our wings/guards (or packaging them together) for an upgrade at the 4 or 5.

    Miles seems to be the odd one out from a wing perspective.
    Except for FVV and Lowry, all can play the forward slot and except for OG all can play guard. Team is deeper now then when there were surplus C

    Yeah, there's a bunch of options out there that Norm would fit if teams want to take a shot with him.

    Dedmon (1 yr), Henson (2 yrs), Zach Randolph (1 yr), Al Jefferson (1 yr), Dwight Powell (2 yr PO), Koufos (1 yr)...
    Fyi Al Jeffreson was already waived by Indiana.

    That would be a really nice pickup for backup C. He's still playing great in limited minutes and that's all we need him for. His per 36 numbers are still peak Al Jefferson.

    Not a bad suggestion.

    For the first time probably ever, we have the luxury of too many wings. We could even trade Green and I wouldn't be upset since we still have more than enough guys to soak up SG minutes.
    Honestly this seems like an issue Masai should assess mid-season. Maybe sign a guy for the minimum, but I'd rather have the wing depth till I know what I have mid-way through the year.

    Perhaps the tricky part of an Al Jefferson signing with the Raptors is that the bench plays an up tempo style of play - not sure that fits with Al

    Ed Davis would have been a great backup big for us if he hadn't already signed with the Nets.

    Would still try to see if David West wants to come here. He's a pro, and may be helpful if we need a voice in the locker room during tough times.

    Is Green the projected starting SG?

    I think so. A lot of people think OG but they're not gonna start Serge or JV on the bench and they're NOT gonna start Kawhi in anything but his comfort zone of the 3 hole. Therefore..

    We essentially got CJ Miles with the solid defence. That's great.

    CJ Miles without the liability on D.
    CJ can get comfortable on bench come playoff time.

    The advantage to OG off the bench is you can have either Kawhi or OG (or both) on the court for 48 guarding the best offensive player. Also staggers green and miles who are a little bit redundant.

    Lowry green Kawhi to fvv miles OG is so similar it's crazy lol

    We'll probably see Lowry playing the 2 as well, sharing minutes with Freddy.

    How about finish with KL/DG//KL/OG/JV. Great defense. Could even use Ibaka for JV for defensive purposes.

    Also if they want to go small but with length they could play Delon, Green, OG, Kawhi, and Siakam.

    My guess is that they will start with:
    Lowry, Green, Kawhi, OG and JV

    With Delon, Siakam and Ibaka the first group to be used to replace spots 1,2, 4, & 5.

    Raptors are just gonna grind some teams so hard on defence this season. There will be no giving up big leads like in the past. I wonder what the point differential in wins will be?

    I think Ibaka starts, but is the first guy out, and then plays the center spot with the bench unit, as the roster is currently constructed.

    Is there the possibility of Siakam at C to close games?

    Possibility? Sure, but I hope only in very specific situations.

    I would think JV will be closing more games under Nurse than under Casey.
