It's really down to if they are still planning to sign anyone.
Chriss can fill the role and fits the scheme fairly well.
With the Belly signing, would the team use another roster spot on another big? With Jessup a question mark as to whether he should get a spot, the potential need (at least in Myers' mind) that we need another PG, or the possibility of re-signing Iguodala, not sure if there are any extra slots for Chriss or another rebounding big.
It's certainly getting down to it now.
If Belly is a 4 then they have 2 5s and one is limited minutes and the other is Wiseman.
Kerr also likes having multiple backup 5s, and despite that habit has lost two titles to injuries at the position.
My guess is that Kerr will use Belly as a stretch 5; too slow to play at the 4 and he spent much of his time last season as a back-up center. Or he could even resort to using JTA as an emergency 5 as he did last season if Looney, Wiseman, Belly and Dray are not all available. And as the game becomes more position-less, he could just put guys with a lot of length (if not height) across the court with Draymond, Kuminga, Porter/JTA and Wiggins to give you 4 guys with around a 7-foot wingspan and follow Kerr's usual pattern of asking everyone (including Curry) to hit the glass.
