The Noel signing is just dumb the more I think about it, on face value it seems like a good signing but when you stop and think about it, it means even if you start Mitch and Obi together you can't stagger their minutes because there will always be a dude that can't shoot coming into the lineup to replace one of them.
If they plan on playing Obi at the 5, it could get really ugly for him, he's just not strong enough for that.
Nerlens is strictly a backup 5, he's not coming in to play alongside Mitch, he's basically the same skillset as mitch except worse offensively
I know, which means Obi is going to be the floor spacer for Nerlens when Mitch sits. If they put Randle at the 5, it's still another guy that can't shoot that Obi has to play with. I just can't believe they'd almost trade up for Obi, just to saddle him with players that don't really help him much. I doubt he wins ROY.
The only lineup that would have Obi with any kind of shooting is Knox, and that is a terrible frontcourt, nobody wants to see an Obi at the 5 and Knox at the 4 lineup except the teams playing us.
