seems like everone is getting minutes there right now.
IMO I think Shane Battier will still start at the SF position and I don't think that's changing anytime soon. Budinger is nice but his defense is not up to par with Shane's defense. Baring any injures, I think Shane will remain in the starting line up. Besides, Bundinger provides some scoring off the bench, something Shane can't do. Budinger I think also is more fit to play with the 2nd unit because he can run, and with Lowry as PG he should be able to run the fast break a little more.
Budinger should be the primary SF coming off the bench, C. Lee will probably substitute for Kevin Martin.
