IF We Got Anthony Lee...

Would he start at the 4 or the 5? I know the guy is only 6'8" so on most teams, he would be playing the 4 and our starting lineup would look something like this:

G- Shannon Scott

G-D'Angelo Russell

F-Sam Thompson

F-Anthony Lee

C-Amir Williams

While that lineup might actually grab a few rebounds, would it be better to start Lee at the 5 and start Loving at the 4?  For how crappy Amir played down the stretch, I still think he showed himself to be a serviceable big man throughout the season (not good, but serviceable) despite his lack of fire.  But talent wise, having Loving on the floor could potentially give the Buckeyes 4 scoring threats and Shannon Scott (Michigan game was the anomaly, not the rule).  Would that scoring be worth the major sacrifice on the boards?
