Irving/Rozier/LarkinBrown/Smart/NaderHayward/Tatum/OjeleyeMorris/Theis/YabuseleHorford/BaynesThats my depth chart but many players will be overlapping into other positions depending on the 5 man rotation being used. I fully expect Smart, Brown, Hayward, Tatum, Horford, and Theis playing multiple positions in the 9-10 man rotation.Starters: Irving/Brown/Hayward/MorrisHorfordFinishers: Irving/Smart/Brown/Hayward/Horford2nd and 4 quarter starters: Rozier/Smart/Hayward/Tatum/Baynes

Morris is more of a iso player than a spot up shooter, so maybe not a great fit in the starting line up anyhow. The athletism of Brown in the starting unit can be very important though I don't rate his defense very high yet.So I fully agree with these units, TP. Tatum looked pretty weak as a post defender, so he gets some slack by not having to play PF in the second line up. And there are minutes available for Theis (who also looks good) at C, when Horford primary plays as a PF. I hope Nader will find some minutes during the season, I like how smooth his game is. I don't think much of Ojeleye and Yabusele. If Yabusele has some trading value then I wouldn't be opposed to giving up on him and trade him right now. If Rozier is not able to convincingly win the battle for back up PG with Larkin, then you have to question whether he has a future with the Celtics as well.
