Relegating Ryno to the bench and having a 3 man rotation to lock up ALL of the 4&5 time would give us more of a "bench" than we have. All we'd need is 3 guys to play about 39 total minutes per game at the 1,2, and 3 to lock up the 9 man rotation, which rivers and morrow and a veteran player could do spledidly. We have 5 guys right now. Reke is a faux bench, aminu is the real bench player there. Right now, we have no bench.
The 3 and Aminu(I think he's a 4) is more of a debate, but you can't tell me you want to keep $6.3 mill in Smith+Stiemsma+Amundson when all they give us is a lower true shooting %, inconsistency, lack of defense and lack of talent. We need to get a C to finish the game with AD because he's obviously not capable of guarding Cs now. Maybe no one will trade for Asik and we can get him with expirings soon.
As far as a 3 goes, having ryno on the bench and reke playing in crunch time would create a need for a 3 point shooting 3 who can play his position well. Ariza has been hot from 3 all year. I'd take a good 3 & 5 over EG+those 3 white bigs any day on this roster. Ryno's 8 mill>>>> those guys' 6.3 mill. Ryno is a perfect real 6th man: instant offense.
