If shumpert comes off the bench for Calderon, who does Calderon cover? I guess Kurt Rambis or prigioni.
Calderon won't cover pg only. At 6-5 he will cover the lesser of guards 1 or 2. Whether they use shumpert as a backup pg or not he will still cover pg's more than last year.
Maybe you're right and early isn't ready- I guess in that case it make a shumpert more likely to defend 3's, but that's out of necessity not best fit
