More on The Huert:

 

 

Yeah no need to rush because of the depth we have at the 2 and 3.

If Huerter doesn't start. Who gets the nod?

Bembry or Reddish?

Pierce says he likes Bembry off the bench but I loath pairing him with Turner in the backcourt. Two non shooters.

I think Bembry starts with Trae, Reddish off the bench to run some point with Turner.

I'm just not a fan of Turner in general and definitely not as our primary back up PG.

Bembry is my guess but I’m hoping Kevin is back before the season starts.  I actually hate Turner being the backup PG.

I agree regarding rushing him back, but with him and Crabbe injured our depth isn't much.

SG - Bembry, Reddish

SF - Hunter, Carter? Turner?

Charlie Goodwin.

I'm concerned about the Center position: Len has been garbage this preseason, Damion Jones rarely looks like an NBA player and I love Bruno but he is soooo raw.

Domantas Sabonis (IND) is on the trading block. He will be a RFA next offseason amd they can't come to contract extention terms. I would be interested but he is asking for too much money for a guy who can't anchor your defense or stretch the floor. He wants more than teammate Miles Turner. He's looking for Gobert money.

Haven’t seen much of Jones but I know Len is not a stretch 5 which is what he’s been playing like in a few of these preseason games.  Bruno definitely has immense potential but Sabonis a fit here?

Len shot 36% from 3 last season, so he is capable. For reference Dedmon shot 38%. Like i said, i hope Len's back and ankle was the cause of the preseason struggles in his shooting percentages.

 

He isn't an ideal fit next to Collins as his defense isn't great. But he's a bit of a bruiser.

For what we would have to give up in trade then turn around and pay him, it's not worth it IMO.
