Jordan Hill's role will decrease under Mike D'Antoni.
"There will be room for Jordan but his role has changed a little bit," Coach Mike D'Antoni said. "There'll be a spot for him but again, we're going to try to get up-tempo and to be able do that, Antawn (Jamison) needs to play the four." Jamison has produced some nice stats with the second unit and is on the radar in standard leagues. Jordan Hill can be cut across the board.
Am I missing something? Is not Jordan Hill a very mobile, hustling, up tempo big? Why can't he be considered a mobile backup center, or forward playing with Pau when Jamison is not in the game?
Sounds like dantoni is going to have a soft euro team approach. Run and gun, but get their butts kicked when they play tough teams. The Thunder bigs must be licking their chops.
We have the best Center in the NBA on our team who should play 34-38 mins a game.
We have a "pf" who is better suited at C.
We have a 6th man whi is a stretch 4 which compliments all the other parts on this team very well.
Meaning, Dwight gets the bulk of the mins and then Pau gets most the rest. Pau gets half at PF and Jamison gets the rest. Clearly, Pau is better at C and Jamison is more effect as PF.
It sucks there are not enough mins to go around, but that's the realty when you have a loaded roster. And we are loaded at the C/PF.
He's a difference maker but facts are facts and he is the end of the totem pole...
If I were Mitch I;'d be looking to trade Pau for a very good SF and a spare big man. Then let Antwan start and Hill get big mins.
