Net rating: +34.9 (off rating: 140.0; def rating: 105.1)
Not a particularly stout defensive frontcourt, but five shooters and enough defense to keep Kawhi and PG13 from getting cooking (thus far).
Something like FVV-Trent-OG-Siakam-Muscala is a better defensive frontcourt and similarly loaded with shooting.
4 shooters around Luka isn't 4 shooters around Siakam.
Muscala's impact numbers were so much better than the other center options and we need spacing for Siakam so badly that he makes sense to sign to split time with Birch at the 5 and a young prospect like Gillespie or the #7 pick, I'm with you on that.
Is a solid bench, though it might be a case of Lowry leaving and we use the 19M on a center or a wing, #7 on the other spot and then the 5M exception gets us one of Birch or Muscala.
