You're listing the SF position with the name Ross and Salmons like it's some sort of strength and PF because they try hard. Effort is great don't get me wrong, but a lot of our key guys are playing a role they shouldn't be. Meaning, Amir would be an unreal 3rd big (backing up both 4 and 5).
I do like that DeRozen is playing this way in NOT a contract year (Lowry).
To be fair the did go 6-12 with Rudy Gay. Let's say they go 9-9 in that stretch they would be competing for a playoff spot in the west. As for the SF position I do like that Ross is still young and as room to grow.
