Bold = likely starter locks.
* = Competitors for the starting SG spot.
() = Rights to.
I expect the SG battle to be fierce and the most interesting thing heading into training camp.
All the bellyaching (and displeasure with Pelinka) aside, that seems like a physical, competitive, #1 seed in the west caliber team.
Who is playing the chaser role in that starting lineup?
It seems like Bazemore needs to start or even Nunn (but then we get too small)
If Gasol stays:
Baze (can be Ariza depending on the matchup)/Monk
Melo will have some role, especially if Ariza is washed or Monk isn't stepping up
I can sadly see Rondo getting time
I would try to get an upgrade at the 2 or combine a couple guys on the bench for 1 piece
I don't like THT's fit on the team considering we have Lebron, Russ, and now even Rondo
Would rather have a 3 and d guy, barring THT doesn't become a good 3 pt shooter
