I didn’t see Coby playing much better (last night) than any of his better games in the first half of the season. I saw Temple out there controlling pace and making simple, good entry passes.
They need to a good conventional PG. And it’s obviously a tricky crop to select from. AKME need to nail their pickup. Lonzo and Schroder are the obvious names; there will be movement elsewhere on the market. We have no idea what happens in the post-season; 1st/2nd round disappointments (14 teams are gonna be fishing, plus the play-ins) are going to probably shuffle their decks.
I would love to keep Temple on a vet min deal. An alternate approach to consider is to essentially get rid of the PG role, let Zach do the playmaking and add a 3&D guy to the starting line-up. If we can't find one, maybe start Brown. Zach, Brown, PWill, Theis, Vuc will hurt our scoring, but do WONDERS for our defense. It would also quasi-force PWill into a bigger role on offense, which, let's face it, is the only way we are likely to get our 3rd star.
