Sample Nets Rotation That Uses Everyone

I never understood the notion that it was better to sit a guy for the entire game, than put him in for a few minutes. I've heard coaches say it's "unfair" and "disrespectful" but at the same time, so is keeping someone on a roster when they practice just as hard as everyone else, have to make the travel to road games and then don't even get to do anything.

This is not just coming off the heels of the Kris Humphries benching, but something that has irked me for awhile now with NBA teams. If we insist on starting Reggie Evans and Gerald Wallace, I've outlined a potential rotation shift that would not only be effective, it would get everyone minutes, and keep everything healthy and fresh for the postseason.

For the final rotation of the game I left open the possibility of another PF or guard having a big game and getting those minutes, but for right now this is penciled in guys to have on the floor to close things out.
I think this accomplishes a lot of things:
- There is scoring in every single lineup we put on the floor. Not always the case this season. - We're giving all our bigs an opportunity to play, and putting them in situations to succeed. Humphries deserves at least 10 minutes and he gets it here without hurting too many other guys. - Deron and Joe are not being run into the ground. We need to keep them healthy. - I don't have Tyshawn in the rotation, but the door is open there if there is foul trouble, or if someone else is not being effective. - Jerry Stackhouse is not being asked to do much when he returns. Just be a veteran presence on the floor with the guys he is with, and hit some open threes if you can. - Mirza Teletovic is getting every opportunity possible to come in and provide a quick scoring spark, while developing the rest of his game.
