He was until he was injured. I assume as a cheap rehab project he can be again. The only question I see about dependability is his health. Defensively there's no question he's good.
Yeah, I'd definitely be interested in Winslow if he became available. I like him more as a secondary playmaker off the bench than Stanley and they bring a lot of the same things defensively. While they're similarly inconsistent on with their scoring, I'd give the slight edge to Winslow. Winslow probably has a lot more untapped potential too. He had a pretty good season in 2018/19 (13/5/4 while being the most impactful player for Miami) then got hit pretty hard with injuries the last two seasons.

I think it also depends if we have a starting SG who can playmake. Currently having Lowry (or who ever starting at SG being the 1st option) and Siakam (2nd option), that goes half of our possessions. Even we scale back VanVleet possession, we are also adding OG, so there is not a lot of possession left.
What I feel has been working:
So I think if we get a replacement for Lowry and re-sign Birch, we got 2 scoring options. Adding:
Siakam Isolation/Postup (assume he improves his mid-range pull up)
OG Isolation/Postup/PnR (assume he continues to tighten his handle and practice his mid-range pull up)
Those are the 4 scoring options already. If we add another PnR off the bench, that is good, but his usage rate maybe same as Powell. We may also need to deal with Trent, as I am unsure he has the vision for the PnR. Therefore, I would focus on a 3&D, maybe having a mis-match or capable of playing the dunker spot like RHJ did.
