Playing him at SF allows them to get another rebounder on the floor (Zaza or whomever else) and adds size/length on the wing to defend those big small forwards who can stretch the floor and attack the rim with authority.Originally Posted by jej
But more than anything, I recognize that Josh wants to be a facilitator. He's always hovered around 3.5-4 assists per game, but has a very high usage rate. When you want the offense to run through a big, you do it from the post, as guys like Pau, Dirk and Duncan have done their entire careers. But Josh doesn't have their post moves nor their range and clearly wants to play his own way from the perimeter, facing the basket -- which is fine but that's for wings and guards. I am simply granting his wish because doing it the other way hurts the offense and slows down the pace.
