Seems like they have a jamlog of mostly natural SFs above. Williams is the only guy I could see playing some 2 (definitely not 4).
Our line up to end games last season was usually:
Sometimes replace Dooling with Hayes depending on the match up. Frank likes to space the floor so that Devin and Vince can go towards the basket. If the help came, Hayes, Dooling, or Simmons would be posted in the corner for the open J. Simmons also is rather big to guard a lot of east coast 4s. Obviously its not optimal, but he has a big strong base to not get pushed over and rather pesky hands.
Essentially though, Frank's offense relies a lot of making corner 3s. The more we made, the more we were likely to win the game.
As far as Hassel goes, he was not even useful last season. He played some spot defense, but he's a bench player. Morrison would have a chance to crack the rotation cause of his ability to shoot the ball. As long as you can play off-ball you can thrive in the system Frank built. Hassell has no offense off ball so he was only used for defense in situations. But overall negligible.
