Satoransky is not the defender Livingston was who was a really strong defender for a point guard. But Satoransky has a better outside shot than Shaun ever had and the extra spacing could be nice.
I was really surprised tonight seeing Reggie Jackson being matched up to defend LeBron tonight. I would never think of a point guard defending LeBron by tactical choice, but was really impressed by his ability to stave off LeBron in match ups. LeBron had a great game but I was impressed with the job Reggie did. I guess it makes sense in some ways because Reggie is strong laterally and LeBron really doesn't post up hardly ever and nobody fears his jump shot. I would take Reggie if we could get him.
I agree on RJax, I think he's going to settle in as a longtime backup PG. Unfortunately for us, he's perfect for the Clippers and could play just as many minutes as Beverley. He's also ideal opposite Lou Williams defensively with his strong frame and quick feet. I think he gets a multi-year MLE deal with them next season.
The one thing I wonder about the Clippers is how are they going to pay everyone next year. If you look at the Clippers roster construction you realize the reason they are the favorites is because Lou (8M) and Harrell (6M) are on big time discounts. Harrell, Morris, Jackson, Patterson are all free agents and even Green can turn down a player option, how do they pay all these guys? If Harrell draws solid interest than that basically locks in the core of players they have, they won't really have any wiggle room going forward to improve. If they lost Harrell and as Lou draws towards 35 are they really the favorites? The Clippers are great on depth of discount deals, but this year is the best they will be imo.
I could see the Bulls being discontent with Satoransky, he's not a good starting point guard and he's blocking minutes from a high draft pick which every fan base hates. But for Satoransky for us is just a tall backup ball handler (Livingston), not a terrible use of the TPE.
