Rubio can't shoot. They aren't playing Montenegro anymore! It might be ok if he had other shooters around him but the starting line-up looks like it will have one guy in Ingles that I'd be guarding to start the game. Hill fit perfectly. Hood isn't Hayward as much as they want to believe it. Ingles is a role player no matter how much they want to pay him. Johnson is a year older. Exum has yet to prove he can play in the league.
They will defend but their lack of shooting and offense overall will put more pressure on the defense. They will officially be tanking by the end of the year. Favors, Johnson and others will be gone.
