I understand draft order, but I think that Edwards’ age, experience, physical maturity and shot more readily translate to early playing time. While the minutes are open to competition, I expect Langford to be brought along similarly to Rozier during his rookie year.I would expect Langford to get most of those minutes you have allocated to Edwards.
The lack of depth is absolutely a concern. Last year’s team had essentially nine starters on the roster while this squad has maybe five or six. My projects minutes slotted a late first and an early second round pick as 7th and 8th in rotation minutes with deep depth of guys like Ojeleye and Wanamaker. Good health will be particularly paramount for this team to reach its potential.This is another reason I don’t have this team in the 50’s.....people are underestimating how little depth we really have.
Over the course of the season players will miss games. Last year we could easily replace someone with a quality young veteran in the lineup......this year we don’t have that luxury without Rozier and MaMo.
