Yeah Todd seems like one of the classic tweener forwards that lacks a certain level of upside because he doesn’t understand team defense/protecting the rim/rebounding.

Probably more exciting as a wing/3 prospect.

While we’re on the subject, Joel Ayayi looks like a serious player in the g-league.

14.8 points 7.7 assists 6.7 rebounds 68.5% TS.

Reminds me of a combination of KCP/Josh Hart. Can guard 1-3, plays on or off the ball, stuffs the stat sheet. Highly efficient.

Wiz hit a home run with this pickup. Hopefully we move on from Holiday soon and give Ayayi a shot.

Gill has only played limited minutes in his career, and they have been pretty much all garbage minutes, but his advanced statistics in those limited minutes are enough for me to wish that he got off the bench more. It is not like any of the Wizards forwards are doing so great that he shouldn’t merit at least a look.

And now on to beating a dead horse: with the Wizards getting limited production from their forwards, I am desperate to see Trez and Gafford on the court at the same time for 12 minutes a game against the opposing teams back up power forward to see if one them can produce as a power forward.

With Kispert stepping up, and Rui on the verge of returning, I see no reason to continue with Bertans. If we can get a taker for him and get back an expiring we can buy out I'd be all for it. At this point he's weighing down the whole team. I'd rather use his roster spot on Ayayi.

Wes needs to shorten the rotation to 9

Can’t play 12 guys

Fully healthy I see a main 8 of Dinwiddie, Beal, KCP, Deni, Kuz, Rui, Trez, Gafford.

Ideally, I see a generic rotation as follows...

Starting:
Dinwiddie, Beal
Kuz, Rui
Gafford

6 min subs:
Beal, KCP
Deni, Kuz
Trez

2nd Q:
Dinwiddie, KCP
Deni, Rui
Trez

6 min:
Dinwiddie, Beal
Kuz, Rui
Gafford

Repeat 2nd Half

This breaks down 36 min Dinwiddie, Beal, Kuz, Rui. 24 min KCP, Deni, Trez, Gafford.

This leaves an "extended bench" of Holiday, Neto, Kispert, Bertans, Gil, Bryant to pool from on an as-need basis to fill in for skill set (ex Bertans for added 3pt shooting), depth, fouls, health/injury, rest, etc.
