    After signing Hood and Mario, letting Aminu walk I would do this rotation at the moment:

    Dame Anf
    CJ
    Baze Hood
    Hark Mario
    Meyers Collins

    Hood I would bring off the bench so he can fill in for Dame or CJ offense when they sit, as well as put the more defensive minded Bazemore against opponent starters.

    Harkless I would start, due to his defense. With Meyers starting I'm not worried about Harkless streaky outside shooting.

    I would have Collins come off the bench so we can keep one of him or Meyers on the court at center. Against mobile 5s maybe start Collins and bring Meyers off the bench.

    Third string would be:

    Trent
    Little
    Jake
    Skal

    Maybe Jake can take Mario's spot in the rotation.

    We really need two more big bodies for 4 and 5.

    If this is all Neil does, I'm going to be really disappointed!

    Surely we try and bring in a vet min Centre and trade Harkless and a pick for a PF?

    You mean as of right now? This might not be our final roster.

    Simons and Collins better be good or the Blazers are in trouble, and they better not rush Nurk back because they suck defensively and cant get wins...

    One down one to go.

    I must admit Olshey has been doing great so far.

    May as well just update this thread as moves happen

    Dame
    CJ
    Bazemore or Hood
    Collins
    Whiteside

    Simons
    Hood or Bazemore
    Layman/Little
    Hezonja
    Skal

    Olshey isn’t done. Look for a stretch four and/or maybe another center. Just depends on how they view Zach.

    Clown. I know it's a joke, but have some respect for a guy that made your life and your kids life so much easier with that 70M contract.
    I'm not in good mood today.

    1-Dame
    2-CJ
    3-Hood
    4-Collins
    5-Whiteside (Nurkic)

    1/2-Ant
    2-Trent
    2/3-Bazemore
    3-Little
    3/4-Hezonja
    4-Tolliver
    4/5-Skal

    When I look at the current roster laid out this way, I really want another vet min PG and another big for insurance. (I also want Skal and Zach to trade places, but that's just wishful thinking)

    That's what I'm seeing too. Maybe Tolliver over Mario depending on their play. Might be able to find a few minutes at the 2/3 for Little too if we want to go 10 deep like last year.
    Another C for insurance / spot minutes would be nice

    Have to play Mario, he's needed for ball-handling in the 2nd unit.
    Coach will make Little earn it.

    Tolliver could also get a bit of backup PF minutes and Skal none.
    There will probably be an unusual amount of backup PF minutes available due to Zach sliding to Backup C as the game goes on. A la CJ backing up Dame
