I went with the "If I had to win an elimination/close out playoff game" criteria. Since those mean the most. Naturally that could occure at least 5 or 6 months from now, so I tried to include in the players individual developement and players ability to mesh in/provide what is needed.

1. Morris
2. Smart
3. Brown
4. Tatum
5. Rozier
6. Baynes
7. Semi
8. Theis

I can't see anyone else in the playoff rotation.
11 is deep enough.

We were very close.  I had Brown ahead of Smart but your game 7 criteria gives Smart the edge.  I also had Theis ahead of Semi because I think his basketball IQ would help him fit in with more teams in the NBA at this moment.

Glad to see someone else values Morris highly.  He's one of the more well-rounded PF's in the NBA.

Tatum - I can't believe I have him this high, but nobody is providing the combination of offense, defense, and consistency that this kid is. Amazing.

Morris - He's still not 100%, I think he'll overtake Tatum when he is.

Smart - Still frustrating to watch a lot but the things he does defensively and the intensity he brings every night is incredibly important.

Brown - When he's been good he's been great. But when his shot isn't falling he can get lost on offense. Still the most versatile defender on the team, though.

Baynes - Knows his role. Plays his role very well. Doesn't play outside himself.

Theis - Seems to always know where to be on the floor.
 
Rozier - For all of the "Terry looks great this season" talk, he's still an inconsistent shooter who dribbles into traffic too often. He's been excellent on defense.

Larkin - He's been good in his minutes but it's hard to imagine him taking on more minutes than he currently gets and the C's still being good.

Ojeleye - He's showing promising signs but lacks any kind of consistency.

Nader - Maybe he just hasn't gotten the opportunities but he hasn't done much this season.

Yabusele - He's been wild in his minutes. I'm looking forward to his development but for now, he's a project.

Stevens pretty consistently plays Brown the whole 3rd quarter and then sits him for rest the first 6-7 minutes of the 4th. He finishes the game though a few times has been shuttled in and out due to his bad free throw shooting.

Heck, last game Stevens KNEW DeRozan was getting the ball during that final possession and Stevens trusted Brown to guard him.

On a consistent basis it has been Tatum

Skipping over all the obvious guys I'm just going to share my personal thoughts on Theis...  I think this guy will be really good in 2-3 years.  His per 36 numbers are pretty impressive.  I love his ability to play with verticality on contesting shots.  He's also got the physical tools to be someone capable of defending a lot of positions.  To me, he is our Draymond light, not Yabu.

If you're talking about Theis, completely false. Per 36 he is only shooting 1.4 3PA and making them at a .33% clip whereas Draymond has twice the amount in 29.9 MPG in 3.4 3PA

This seems right. I'm still not 100% on how the Jaylen/Jayson competition will play out. I think Tatum might be better b/c of his superior offensive game, but there's a chance that Brown can push his defense into the Kawhi category. I might be higher on Brown than others.
