While Kaleb is difference maker, I would feel comfortable with a front court rotation that includes Liddell, Young, Key, and Diallo. And while I have no idea what Diallo will become, a player like him could make vast improvement from year 1 to year 2. Will it happen? Who knows? But I like the other three guys a lot and have no qualms playing small ball. We will create as many matchup issues as we suffer, perhaps a net positive

The comment about CJ doesn’t seem right to me. They player we saw in February and March was very different than what we saw in December and January. Maybe it’s more a question of whether we will continue to see that latter version. Lenzelle Smith looked like he was going to take a step back in the day and then plateaued. We don’t know what we will see with CJ Walker

His best playing options are probably overseas. That is probably less attractive given the Coronavirus situation, which would explain Kaleb staying put for the time being. That would be the smart move as I see it

Great catch. If he comes back healthy, Jallow will likely be a meaningful contributor too. Possibly could be a starter if he shows the same shooting he demonstrated in to 2018 tournament.

I don’t always agree with you, wig. But I think you nailed this. If I had to guess the starting five will be Walker, Muhammad, Sueing, Young, and Liddell with no traditional five. Washington, Towns, and Carton will all play big minutes too. Ahrens, Brown, Key, and Diallo will play spot minutes as needed

I would reverse that. Towns plays and looks much more like a 3. He plays at the 3-point line and is more slender. Sueing has a stronger build and could handle 4 much better. He also has more of a midrange game and takes the ball to the hoop effectively.

You have to rethink this if Holtmann is going to largely positionless basketball. You won’t see traditional 5s most of the time. Think of Villanova’s last championship with Spellman theoretically at the 5
