If Culver is part of the future he of course will be heavily involved in handling the ball, making plays, etc. That being said, I think that it might be a good idea to find a guard to play opposite him that is kind of a 3 and D PG. Guys like Patty Mills, Pat Beverly, Dragic who are PG's but they're not 1A when it comes to setting guys up, making plays, etc. They can defend tough and nail shots to space the floor, and SHARE the play-making with a guy like Culver.
Do yourself a favor and watch a few Pels games and focus on Frank Jackson. He's a backup PG/SG who can play off the ball as well as help with the setup of things. Great athlete and tough defender too. The reason I mention him is because he'll be a restricted free agent next summer and he would be a GREAT fit next to Culver whether it's a bench pairing or starting pairing.
Jevon Carter is also a free agent next summer and he would be an affordable prototype as well, he'd be a rotational PG, not a starter, but he could get decent minutes opposite Culver.
VanVleet would be sweet (he's a free agent), but he'll re-sign in Toronto. Other than that, I don't see any other free agent PG's who would be somewhat affordable, that would fit our time-table, and would be 3 and D types.
Draft - We all know the upcoming draft is supposed to be "heavy" with quality PG's. Excellent news for us, but I can't speculate on any pg's at this point, need to watch 'em.
Trade - D-Lo - Something doesn't fit with me on D-Lo, he'll cost too much $, he's so ball dominant (bad for Culver, Wigs), and isn't a great defender. I just don't see us trading for a top 10 PG so we'll have to get this done in free agency AND the draft.
Wiggs at the 3 and Cov at the 4 makes us the scrawniest forward combo in the league! We need that spot for some size, there's PF's that can handle the ball too not to mention Wiggs/Towns can facilitate too
