Not quite what I suggested, but yes of course I would do this.Just look at Barea's per 36 numbers and it's all you need to know.Also, he has Boston roots, having played at Northeastern.
Rozier + Nader + #2 for J.J. BareaIs that enough for a tanking Dallas team?I totally stole this idea from KG’s Knee, btw.
I love Barea, but I think the Celtics are too committed to their switching defense to swap Rozier for a guy as small as JJ. Even when Rozier isn't hitting shots, he's still skying for rebounds and playing solid defense with an ability to guard the 2, which allows Brad to use the three guard lineup - going small without sacrificing defense. You can have Rozier and Larkin on the court at the same time. You can't do that with Larkin and Barea. Teams can already look to post up Larkin on a switch, they'd eat us alive being able to go one-on-one against both him and JJ... we'd have to switch less, which would mess with the success of our defense and the versatility of our lineups.Love JJ, but I don't think adding him to this roster would fit with Brad's schemes.
