I'm not really big on college basketball, but to my understanding, if the C's get a top 2 or 3 pick, it'll likely be a PG. So it got me thinking, how would you incorporate promising players like Ball or Fultz, into the rotation without limiting their growth or exposure, or having them play out of position? Then I wondered what the ideal situation would be in general for a rookie out of college.
For instance, lottery rookies typically get a lot of burn on the team that they get drafted by because they would have a pretty abysmal record due to lack of talent, and the rookie is immediately placed in the rotation. The rookie may get a lot of in-game regular season experience, but often times are not put in the best position to win games throughout the course of their rookie year.
Rookies drafted by playoff teams usually have to fight for rotation minutes. They may become exposed to the playoffs, winning cultures and attitudes, but ultimately they don't have the experience or talent to keep up with the rest of the rotation.
The C's are in an interesting position where the biggest talents in the draft play the same position as one of the biggest (or smallest) talents in the league in IT. Even if TROZ or D-JAX get moved, how would the C's be able to get developmental playing time for the rook while keeping the rotation intact?
(Other than trade them lol)
