This will sound weird for a 65 win team but I'm very fascinated by how the 4th guard spot will play out.
Actually, it doesn't sound weird at all. We know where we are set. In particular, Harden, Paul, and Gordon are locked into the guard rotation. Bobby Brown is gone (YES!!!) which means there is an open spot and we just drafted (potentially) the next James Harden.
There are only 2 things you can find that people count as negatives against Melton: his size and his shooting.
At 6' 4" his size is fine. He's got good reach and great athleticism combined with a good b-ball IQ. Plenty have done more with less.
His shooting is the only question mark and it appears that will not be an issue.
People rave about his great first step, ability to create and absorb contact at the rim, willing passer and an accurate passer, great rebounding, can play either guard spot...heck, they're even from the same city (if you can count opposite sides of LA as the same city). It all adds up to Right-Handed-James-Harden.
It's difficult not to get excited about that.
Michael Carter-Williams? Please. Might was well bring Corey Brewer back. He's a mid-range chucker who doesn't realize he's shooting 23% from 3 ft. out to the 3 pt. line. How is this guy in the NBA?
It's not clear if Gerald Green will get some of those 2-guard minutes or possibly James Ennis. We know what we've got in every other player (more or less). D'Antoni has to let Melton get out there just in case he is ready and he's the missing piece that catapults us over the rest of the NBA.
In other news, I was watching some recent Caboclo highlights and wound up being less excited about him when I was done. That's not good. Perhaps taking on a more passive role here will allow his talent to flourish more, but I think there is a reason Morey found him on the NBA scrap heap.
