Hmm, so D'antoni plans to play an 11-man-rotation this upcoming season.
PG: Steve Nash/Jordan Farmar/Steve Blake
SG: Kobe Bryant/Nick Young/Jodie Meeks
SF: Wesley Johnson/Elias Harris
PF: Jordan Hill/ ? /(Ryan Kelly)
C: Pau Gasol/Chris Kaman/Robert Sacre
I originally hoped for signing Ronnie Brewer instead of Harris. But based on Harris' draft prospect, he can provide defense, rebounding, and frequently attacks in the paint. He shouldn't be too bad.
Getting a rim protector should be our next priority. Tyrus Thomas seems like an ideal fit, but his knee injury may be a problem. A basic gritty, defensive-minded PF would be an alternative. Ivan Johnson could play the role, but the Knicks are interested in him. I'd like a reunion with Lamar Odom, but I just don't know how much he could provide. If he can provide defense and rebounding, then go for it. But Odom is probably hesitant to sign himself since he doesn't expect the Lakers to keep him after this season
Once completed, this roster can make some noise if somehow everyone remained healthy.
