This is Doc being Doc. Over relying on the starters AND too many bench guys.
Doc should pick a rotation of 8 guys and go with it. Personally I think he should go with something like:
KG / Darko
Bass / Green
Pierce / Green
Bradley / Jet
Rondo / Jet
There's still enough minutes for an extra guy in there, use Wilcox and Barbosa when you need an extra big or wing/guard (tactical reasons). I know people will give me grief about Sullinger - but I'd prefer to see how the vets are doing, before deciding on him over them. I'd like to see how Darko does - good reports on his training camp, and I think we need a center on the floor.
Plus from a trade stand point this gets Green, Bradley, Jet and Bass show time. I think any trade that consolidates two of our B guys into an A guy involves two of them.
As for Green - his most important role is backup small forward - keep Pierce's minutes down and help against teams that play two small forwards a lot. If nothing changes, I'd guess he averages around 22 mpg, with some games bursting up to 30, but only if he plays well. Would he do better as a starter? Perhaps, but I don't think starting him and Pierce helps. It creates a hole in the rotation and over packs our deepest position - PF.
In the offseason, I was hoping we'd retain Ray and use our MLE on the best backup C we could get - be that Camby, Steisma, or someone else. I felt this lineup would have been very good:
Rondo, Allen, Green, Bass, KG - starting team that could run and space. AB as change of pace, Pierce for his play making and all around game, and the best center money could buy to hold the fort behind KG would have been a very strong 8 man.
Even if we lost Allen - I think plugging Lee into his spot and going with the same rotation would have made sense. JET, I think, is a luxury purchase (in fairness DA couldn't have known that he'd get Lee & get Barbosa to hold the fort while AB was out). The team is now more talented 1 - 15 than it has been in the KG era, but I think the fit and rotation is out of wack. I'm not super optimistic on AB's recovery this year (having had shoulder surgery, plus reading into DA's pickup of guards, plus wondering how he works back in), but when he can play it only will make the problems worse.
On the other hand - they can work through these issues. I'd rather have the talent and need to consolidate the rotation, then not have the talent and need to stretch the rotation.
