Wade and D-Rose are redundant. Two old guys who struggle on defense, have poor jump-shots and need the ball in their hands to be useful.
The Cavs are going to struggle fitting both of these into their team. Tough to play them alongside one another given their combined (and similar) strengths & weaknesses. Nevermind LeBron as well next to them.
I expect Rose to get more play with the starters at the beginning of the season while Isaiah rehabs.
By springtime, Rose will likely be playing fewer minutes off the bench. I doubt he plays a larger role during the playoffs than Deron played for them this past season.
It seems like that could really upset Rose and cost him a lot of money. He needs to show he can stay healthy and play significant minutes at 28 years old on a one year deal. This IT/Smith/Rose/Wade seems like it could be a disaster for a lot of reasons.
That's what I was thinking. Someone's going to end up with the short stick, minutes-wise, here and I'm not sure which one of this group is going to be the magnanimous one.
