It's a simple question with many different opinions.

I believe that the idea rotation is of eight guys, however I also think that after those eight rotation guys there should be 2 specialists (usually three point/defensive)

However this year is incredibly different than most, so I actually think that a 10 man rotation is the ideal in the regular season and 9 man in the playoffs will reflect that

I believe during the regular season you want to use 9 or 10 guys on a rotation to limit peoples minutes. But when you get into the playoffs you usually shorten that rotation to 8.

I think it is different for home and away. 8-9 home and 9-10 away with reserves for foul or injury trouble. A good team fields 10 deep starter types fitting together.

This year of course - if your thinking playoffs - with the back-to-backs in the playoffs maybe 9-10 in the rotation playing well together.

I would also think this year with all the back to backs and even back to back to back games out there, teams are going to play a little deeper into their bench.

Typically I like an 8 man rotation .. this season you almost need a 10 man rotation with all the fatigue/injuries

A backup combo guard + Combo forward + center
or
Backup 2-3 type, backup pg, backup 4-5

8 Deep and then like another poster said a few specialists (shooters, defensive specialists)

nba 8 players rotation. 5 + combo guard + big pf/c tweener + one scorer regardless of position.

I would rather the second option because usually the second unit needs more shots created for them, so a second PG is ideal

I would have to say a 10 man rotation in the regular season and then cutting it down to a 8 or 9 man rotation during the playoffs.

Ideally, 10 in the regular season and 8 in the playoffs.

9: Your 5 starters: a back up point, a back up wing, a back true center who can hold the paint down, a hybrid big who can shoot/dribble

For the season, about 10-12 guys would be great; for the playoffs, 8-9 guys max.

Over ten is a little excessive.
