Meh. It's a hit-or-miss league. Any of those bench guys can go cold and several at a time is very possible.I love the BWA, but let's not kid ourselves. They need another scorer like Jamal Crawford for certain situations.
Last year Morris came straight from a summer of court issues, to a new team full of new players and suffered a series of lingering injuries.Morris might wind up the most improved player,the scoring anchor of the 2nd unit and a rugged defender with Smart, Baynes and Rozier.That 2nd team can consistently add points,grow leads or make up for cold starts
I think we will miss Shane Larkin -a pest on defense and a change of pace point guard.Not very excited with our guards after Marcus and Rozier.
As others have said, I think Stevens will rotate starters into 5 man groupings with the bench to give the highest quality of play across all 5 man groupings. If Stevens uses a 10 man rotation, I seriously doubt we will see all the starters out and all the bench guys into unless it's the 4th quarter of a blowout.I could easily see Brown and Tatum playing lots of the 2nd and 4th quarters with both starters and bench players and see players like Smart, Morris, Baynes, Rozier, and Ojeleye get switched in the 1st and 3rd quarters to get run alongside Hayward, Kyrie and Horford.That way all 4 main scorers Kyrie, Hayward, Brown and Tatum will be able to get the most good shots possible.

They need another scorer like Jamal Crawford for certain situations.A scorer would be a nice but IMO it is not a necessary addition.These needs can be resolved with good rotation management and we have the best man alive for that task in CBS.Jamal is a seriously overrated player. Especially now when he is this old. In truth, he is physically weak, can't defend, and isn't much of an off-ball threat. People act like he is 27 and not on his last legs. That guy could help us.Guys that just do one thing, score with the ball in their hands, are easily overrun.I always thought that it is the 9 deep teams consisting of versatility win a playoff series and titles.Not the ones with one trick ponies.
