In my thinking, the uncertainty is with the bigs.  You need to cover 96 minutes and I don't think Tatum is going to play all that many of them:

Bigs
Horford      30
Baynes      18
Morris       20
Theis        18
(Tatum      10)

Wings
Brown       32
Tatum       22 (32 Total)
Hayward    28
Rozier       14

PG
Irving      26
Smart     18
Rozier      4 (18 Total)

This accounts for the expectation that Hayward and Irving will miss games for rest and is based on the average over 82 games, not the average in the games they play in.  Smart and Rozier get short-changed because of the need to play Morris and Theis more.  There will probably be trades or injuries that allow the roster to balance out.

Kyrie 32 / Rozier 16
Brown 32 / Smart 16
Hayward 32 / Smart 16
Tatum 32 / Morris 16
Horford 32 / Baynes 16
There is simply no way Smart plays doubles the minutes that Rozier and Morris do

Why not?
Philly:

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner
David West    Kenyon Martin    Brad Miller
Andre Iguodala    Josh Childress    Marquis Daniels
Dwyane Wade    Leandro Barbosa
Kirk Hinrich    Toney Douglas   + the legendary Kevin McHale

Why not?
Because Smart isn't nearly good enough to warrant that. And he only played 3mpg more than Morris, and 4mpg more than Rozier last year.
