so we at least need one more "rotation type" 10th or 11th man who would be ok with 12 mpg or so unless injuries or foul trouble bumps him up the rotation. Probably a PF/C.

 

Probably also need another center, 13th man type guy who barely plays.

Khem Birch is signing with the Orlando Magic per Sport24.gr

oooh looks like we signed Khem Birch

 

 

Udoh isn't the only big to play in the Euroleague Final Four who fits this mold, as Olympiacos' Khem Birch could very well find himself back in the NBA soon as well. Although not quite as long as Udoh (7' 1 wingspan), Birch, still only 24 years old, has outstanding feet and impressive instincts as a shot blocker. Olympiacos used him as a switch man with great success in Istanbul, and his ability to also rim protect and rebound make him a great fit in today's NBA as a bench big. Although not quite the passer of Udoh, Birch is a vertical spacer/lob catcher who still has some upside to grow into. The former UNLV product always had NBA intrigue but his laid back mentality (which he's reportedly improved by leaps and bounds) is what held him back. He'll likely garner big Euroleague offers this summer, but an NBA team may be wise to bring him in before his price tag escalates even more over the next few years. - Source: http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Khem-Birch-5793/ ©DraftExpress

seems like he's what we wanted Brandon bass to be.

 

His junior year at UNLV wasn't bad.

 

11.5/10.2/3.7 blocks

 

If he can catch a basketball, he might already be better then BIZ lol jk.

I dont see Mario playing the PF position anhmore and will not be a 3 string SF.

He will be Fournier back up at SG or SF when Ross is playing The SG position. In other words he will be Fournier substitution.

Hezonja isn't a shooting guard. he once was but he got taller.

Mario is pretty clearly a SF.

 

If we ever want him to develop we should entrench him at SF and a little SG. PF you're just further hampering his already terrible development.

It doesnt really matter who is what, we will play with 3 wings who can defend PG through PF

 

So we will have

PG - Payton,Mack,DJ

SG,SF,PF - Fournier,Ross,Gordon,Hezonja,Isaac, Iwundu

C - Vuc, Biz, Birch

 

Players who probably least fit this system are DJ,Fournier and Vuc.

And we still have an unknown in Hezonja.

 

I think we will likely see these guys traded the first, if they dont come out with strong performances early in the season. Also I dont necesarilly think any of the wing players are safe either, we might trade any one of them if theres a chance to get an upgrade at that spot in a trade with a combination of the above 4 players.
