1. DFS is seen as the lockdown guy, even though he's really not.
2. Delon Wright most probably.

Man, I hope the team can acquire a lockdown defender somehow, but ionno who they could realistically get. Andre Roberson maybe?

Delon Wright will be tasked to defend the opposing team's best guard. Luka, I assume, will take the easier assignment on defense.

Not sure about the answer to that question until I see them play but all I know is that Maxi and Wright should be in the starting lineup imo.

Who's defending the likes of Harden or Devin Booker?

Boban and KP are both great on defense.

Kleber too I would say.

Are any of them lockdown defenders though?
Are any of them defensive anchors?

I'm curious to see how we use Courtney Lee, who has been a very good perimeter defender at points of his career. A few years ago he said his goal was to make an All-Defensive team. I'm not sure he's big enough to take on 3s or quick enough to take on 1s. But he could be our guy to take on Harden and the likes. I hope we give him a serious look, because the 3&D wing was a missed addition this off-season.

2. Hopefully Wright, otherwise this will be an issue

Kleber's a damn fine pick. I was really impressed with him last season.

Technically, I think you're referring to swingman type against LBJ, Kawhi and so on. We have none. DFS is still the best serving that role but not a good or proven one at all.

Kleber's solid on the perimeter.
