Now if Rosas can rid the team of teague's contract in a positive deal, we'd be sitting pretty good
I'm curious who the shots are gonna come from moving forward.
In terms of who we lost, it was not huge but it's gonna take some work to mesh. I think the key will be player buy-in when it comes to accepting more specific roles. If you want minutes ya gotta make an impact with or without the ball...
I think we're about a .500 team when healthy ... not bad for a young team in the west. We have several unknowns
Towns and Wiggins will lead the team in fga. Outside of that, the open man gets the shot. If teague is still here to start the season though, I'm sure he will take plenty of shots himself.
That's a good question.
Wolves are replacing 7344 minutes of Saric, Tyus, Taj, Rose and Tolliver for Vonleh, Layman, Bell, Napier, Graham (5535 minutes last season) and Culver (who would have to play 1800 - or 24 MPG- to be a wash among this groups).
The first group attempted 83 shots per 100 possessions.
The new group attempted 73 shots per 100 possessions with their respective teams last season, and that's without counting Culver.
Napier is close to Rose (21 vs 26 shot attempts per100)
Layman is close to Saric (15 vs 16 shot attempts per100)
Vonleh to Gibson (12 vs 15 shot attempts per100)
Bell to Tolliver (11 vs 11 shot attempts per100)
Graham to Tyus (12 vs 13 shot attempts per100)
The new group attemps fewer shots in each comparison but then you have factor in Culver.
Is interesting the first 3 (Napier, Layman and Vonleh) share their roles with their old counterparts as well.
Bell/Graham vs Tolliver/Tyus dont share any similarites though.
