He plays well with Harris/Ben and Embiid but gets lost when all three are on the court together because the usage goes down, it doesn’t help sometimes because he has shown to sulk.
Try a small ball center lineup with Ben at the 5 with Harris plus Milton, Green, Hill that could work out very well for portions at a time. 4 shooters, three pseudo ballhandlers a lot of space to operate. Can do the same thing with Curry. Milton/Embiid plus shooters can work.
It’s always been about staggering lineups. Also matchup dependency plays a key here. Find which lineup works well and go to town on it and bank it in. Hawks are small, Nets aren’t big either.
Green/Hill make Korkmaz more negligible and Thybulle needs big offensive prowess to keep the offense flowing.
Maxey is too green and not good enough as a creator, and Hill is more of a smaller portion type.
What's interesting is that over the last three games, you have a loss and two games that would've been far closer on the scoreboard had either Maxey or Milton not come in and lit it up and functioned like a traditional point guard who can shoot and penetrate off the dribble.
