Default Would Eddie Jones fit?

As a two guard?

There's an article in the main forum saying that he expects to be bought out or traded by the deadline. Do you think he'd star in Charlotte?

PG: Felton
SG: Jones
SF: Wallace
PF: May
C: Okafor

I think Brevin does just fine at the 2 spot.

Technically yes, but we start Felton and Brevin (one at SG, one at PG) and they seems to be a good combination, or so I think.

Jones at SG would give the cats the option of using Ammo as sixth man joker at both SG and SF. I like that idea.

I guess i'm just a fan of Brevin's game.

Yes they are a good combo, but Brevin at the two opens the door for him to get defensively torched every night by the larger SG's in the league. Jones gives us a body that can match up well with the rest of the league.

Talking

Morrison as 6th man sounds good in theory but if he's brought in from the bench specifically when the team needs to score points then he's got to be a more consistent shooter. We can't count on him yet to reliably help the team out at critical moments. But I guess that BK's reliable game has to be weighed against the fact that because of his size he's fodder for the first steam-roller to come along. Of course BK is a giant next to Earl Boykins (who I think is really only 5'2" no matter what the press says) and no one with even half a brain rags on Boykins for being small.

Is it time to resurrect this idea? Though now I don't see Ammo as the permanent 6th man--more likely May or Carroll.
Any thoughts?

May's been struggling lately and I wouldn't mind seeing Carroll get the start at the 2 spot every now and then. He and Morrison could easily share plenty of minutes at that spot.

I still would love to see Jones in Charlotte though.

Btw, nice avatar Bobcat4ever, I just noticed it.

Felton at 2 guard?

Knight is more of a passer, so i like him starting and point...

EJ will fit perfectly, but his contract is a cancer, his experience however, woukd do nice...
