Pretty comparable as players (Sabonis more offensively skilled, Siakam the more useful defender), in a vacuum I'd slightly lean Siakam. Then I'd further tilt in his favor that the Raptors don't yet have representation in my ideal (and I like having good teams represented), and I prefer Siakam's label as a PF to Sabonis who I view as a C.
According to your list don't you view Davis as a 5? He plays 4 a lot during the RS.
Doesn't most of Sabonis impact still come from defense?
Sure, some guys play both, but I'm not splitting the baby here and need to pick one way or the other to go with each guy.
You could argue that with Sabonis (more generally, not on this particular IND team due to who his replacements are). But I'm not sure how that's relevant to my statement? I still view Siakam as the better defender.
