LAS VEGAS New Charlotte Bobcats coach Steve Clifford doesn’t want to get caught shorthanded next season at point guard or among the big men.

 

That’s Clifford’s general philosophy in building an NBA roster. With the Bobcats signing free-agent center Al Jefferson and re-signing power forward Josh McRoberts, the roster has been firmed up. The last major step will be resolving whether shooting guard Gerald Henderson is back, either through a multi-year extension or on the one-year qualifying offer.

 

Clifford sees signing a third point guard and retaining another big man as priorities.

 

“You have to have a third point guard. If your team’s not organized in this league, you have no chance to play well,” Clifford said at summer-league practice Wednesday.

 

“I think you have to have six bigs,” he added, referring to centers and power forwards.

 

“We have some flexibility in that (small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist) will play some power forward. But if you don’t have enough bodies up front and you go to Memphis and one of them has the flu, that means somebody (undersized) has to guard Zach Randolph.”

 

This explains why they had (have) interest in Greg Oden, Antawn Jamison, and Jamaal Tinsley.

I guess Haywood isn't in the plan then because with him we already have 6 bigs.

I noticed that as well...

 

He may value Jeff Adrien as a small forward. Jeff is only 6-7, so it might be hard to play him at the four spot.

If we seriously want a PF, Drew Gooden could be a good backup choice.

 

It's such a change, we usually have hardly any big men, but Clifford seems to value them pretty high.  I like that.

He can take the fur ball on the back of his head somewhere else.

The differences between our head coach this year and last year are obvious.

 

Clifford knows exactly what hes doing and exactly what it takes to succeed in the NBA.

The point guard on the D league summer team is really good. He should get some looks.. I like Tinsley bc he is a vet that had to adjust his game to stick in the league. Also...he gots mad crossovers!!!

Everybody is on dyson ands aying he sucks and is no count. But honestly I'm one of the ones who see his potential and like what he bring to our team. He is an efficient scorer with Derrick rose talent and prolly can destroy kemba. Laugh if u want guys. We have our star. We just gotta give him a shot.








Is what u would say if u were better at trolling.

I know this sounds juvenile, but in my NBA 2k dynasty modes I always have 3 PGs, 3 SGs, 3 SFs, 4 PFs, and 2 Cs. I'd say that's generally the best way to set up a team barring injuries that require an extra man at a certain position
