A good comp might be what Ezeli did for GS last season. He started off the bat due to injuries, but he still wasn't playing much more than 15 minutes.

You really think Monty would start Withey over Smith?

Yes, for the same reason a guy like Manu or Anderson or Harden used to come off the bench. They're clearly better than the guy who's starting but are much more important for what they bring coming off the bench.

Smith's greatest value has always been in what he brings off the bench.

I think we have our first controversy of the season. Withey 10-15 MPG starter or 10-15 MPG bench player?

Yeah. I remember hearing that Smith hates playing center


Not sure how many minutes will be available at PF if Davis gets the increased playing time that we're all expecting.

I'm not saying he couldn't eventually be the starter, but Monty wants to win games now and if Withey absorbs the playbook like most rookies do he's going to be out of position for months. You have to hide a guy like that against 2nd units.

He could start. May not play 25 mpg or anything crazy.

He's being counted on to basically be a big body and somewhat hold his own on D. That skill is transferable. If we were counting on him for more I'd say no chance

If he's gonna play at all, he's got a much better shot at success playing 15 minutes per night with our starting unit than he does playing next to Anderson.

Defending the pick n roll with Holiday vs. defending it with Roberts.

Saving Davis a few fouls per game. I think those areas are where his value would come from come.

In the end, i doubt it matters though because i seriously doubt we'll be picking between Jason Smith and Withey as our opening night starter.
