So, its close enough that we can start projecting what the depth chart will look like. What do you think? Here's my guess:
Victor Oladipo | Elfrid Payton | Luke Ridnour
Ben Gordon | Evan Fournier | Devyn Marble
Moe Harkless | Aaron Gordon | Tobias Harris
Channing Frye | Tobias Harris | Andrew Nicholson
Nikola Vucevic | Kyle O'Quinn | Anthony Randolph*
Hopefully, after the young guys develop around the All-Star break...
Elfrid Payton | Ben Gordon | Luke Ridnour
Victor Oladipo | Evan Fournier | Devyn Marble
Aaron Gordon | Moe Harkless | Tobias Harris
Channing Frye | Tobias Harris** | Andrew Nicholson
Nikola Vucevic | Kyle O'Quinn | Anthony Randolph
*Unless gets waived as expected
**Harris playing BACKUP power forward is the worst possible scenario I can imagine. I really hate the idea of him playing PF next to Vuc, the rim protection would be terrible. I don't know where else to put him. It looks like Aaron Gordon is going to be a SF and I doubt the 4th overall pick will be sitting the bench by the end of the season.
*This two will swap after the Kevin Love trade
Atlanta (who was under .500 last year) will take a step back. They got lucky in a weak conference and went up against The Player Formally Known As Roy Hibbert. Toronto was overrated in a weak conference and will also slide. Brooklyn is old. I think we will hit our stride the 2nd half of the season and finish at .500.
