Default Clippers need to solidify their rotations

The Clippers know Paul, Billups, Caron Butler, Griffin and DeAndre Jordan are their starters. They know Jamal Crawford is their sixth man. They know Odom is the first big off the bench, and Matt Barnes and Eric Bledsoe are in that top nine as well.

The question now becomes: How much do you play Bledsoe and Crawford in relation to Billups, who is at the end of his career and coming off a major injury? How much do you play Barnes in relation to Butler when Barnes on some nights is more effective on both ends of the floor? And where do Hill, Ronny Turiaf, Hollins and Willie Green fit in?

There’s time for Del Negro and the Clippers to figure that out, but that process needs to begin now so players aren’t wondering what their roles are during the playoffs and what assignments they have when they’re on the floor with someone they’ve hardly played with. Del Negro has done a good job of balancing the egos and needs of the players on the team during the season, but he’s going to have to make some hard decisions on playing time soon, such as giving Hill, Turiaf, Hollins and Green DNP-CDs as he tightens his lineup.
