With the Nets eyeing Hollins today I will be eyeing free agency. Even while I write this things might change with players signing elsewhere, so please keep that in mind. Now if Hollins is hire the bench is not really going to reflect the players he wants. For me it will be more offensive than defensive. The bench will need to be able to produce for this team to make a run and it needs to do it now. With Shaun gone and Paul being courted by other teams here is my projected starting lineup up. PG: Williams SG: Johnson SF: Kirilenko PF: Garnett C: Lopez. That leaves me with ten players to fill up the bench and I know we have people under contract along with the our drafted players. Everything will be explained.
Here is how my bench would look like. Sixth man would be DJ Augustin. PG: Teague, Gutierrez SG: Morrow, Brown, Thomas SF: Lewis PF: Plumlee, Hill C: Want Robin Lopez but will take O'Neal here. On second thought no I won't because I forgot MT3. These guys are my first option so far but can change. Also with the other draft picks if we can send them overseas for a year or to and hold onto their rights I would do that. Since we don't have a D-League team anymore. Thornton is not on here because I would trade him for picks Euro stash.
Augustin provides a veteran backup point guard that is quick and can score. Allowing for Deron to move to SG for a smaller and quicker lineup. Morrow we all know will bring back a three point threat with consistency not mentioned one of the better jump shooters. Lewis also another three point threat. And Finally Hill will be our rebounder and first big man off the bench.
