Williams is fine, just raw. Shouldn't be starting, agreed.

White is more problematic. Making him a PG is a waste of time, but can he learn to defend the point? In any case, quit wanting him to be something he is not, and try to mold him after Jerry Stackhouse and Ben Gordon as a 6th man volume SG.

He can be good at that role. Wanting more won't make him more.

1. Lauri- Stretch 4
2. White- 6th man SG spark
3. Williams- superstar scorer, too long to stop once there are tools (the hope)
4. Wendall- depth big.
5. Lavine- would be a great #3, Chris Bosh...batwoman

I can't imagine much else playing a big role on a great team.
If you added 2 superstars we might be interesting. Hopeful we can grow Williams into one. Sign another. But by the time we get there we probably need to find another Lavine.

Young/Porter/Temple....I just feel like these guys should go fight for a contender, and all they are doing is lowering our draft pick.

He is 19 so I´ll give him time to develop and the benefit of the doubt.

But right now I don´t see any hint that he will be a 25+ PPG scorer.

To be a superstar scorer his mentality seems to be way too passive right now.

Hope you're wrong honestly but I agree. Hard seeing him be a 25 PPG scorer. Good news is he's still very young and a raw prospect.
