I think Nick gave us a pretty good idea of who is in and out with his minutes distributions.
The biggest surprises for me is that it looks like Champagnie and Banton are legit part of his team.
The one guy in the top 15 there that might have played his way out of a spot is Gillespie. They might try and see if Ish can handle the 5 spot defensively in his place but I wouldn't be surprised to see us add another C from outside the org before the season starts to take Gillespie spot.
I would guess Dekker and Ish stick around due to injuries but beyond that they're going to have to hope Champagnie and Banton need more work in the G league.
I'm not offended by 41-41 projection that basically assumes Pandemic Pascal is the real Pascal, and most of our bench is just bad.
I don't think either of those things are going to turn out to be true this season. I think Breakout OG is a thing, and we move from being 2 fringe all stars at the top of the lineup into a 3 headed monster of fringe all stars at the top of the lineup, and I think the kids will oscillate between giving us and the opposition complete fucking fits, but on their way to surprising levels of total impact.
I'm getting early Bench Mob (2016/17 Fred, Delon, Jakob, Norm) type vibes here where we defended and ran opposing 2nd units into the ground a lot of nights.
