Will Darius Miller be firmly established as the Starter when Hill gets back?
He’s played at least 25 minutes in the last 4 and 33 in the last 2 games. He’s leading the league in 3 point shooting and Gentry mentioned yesterday how he’s attracting attention because of it and creating space for Jrue.

Not even considering the wasted money if he isn’t starting, is 15-18 minutes of Hill instead of Cunningham enough to get the defense back on track.

re: Will Darius Miller be firmly established as the Starter when Hill gets back?
The Pelicans are a strange franchise that brings back guys in a limited capacity and slowly re-integrates them back into the line-up. I'm sure Hill will come back with a minutes restriction and can't play back to backs. So Miller will keep the job until Hill is back to full health. By that time, one or the other will have made the stronger case to be the starter. I hope it is Miller, as Hill does a great job playing the 4 in smaller line-ups. Which is critical since we don't have a good back-up 4 and Cousins/Davis are playing too many minutes..

If Miller can keep it up, deploying Hill/Cunningham as 3/4 v 2nd units is a decent plan. They played well at those spots next to Davis last year

re: Will Darius Miller be firmly established as the Starter when Hill gets back?
I think Hill is the starter when he is fully healthy/back to form. However, I am not sure if that will occur this season.

For as good as Darius' shooting has been for the offense, his defense has been pretty poor which is our weak point this year. I think Solo will "start" and get 25-30 minutes to shore up the perimeter defense while Miller is a shooter off the bench, but continues to see substantial minutes which come at the expense of Dante and Tony Allen. Who finishes depends on the situation. If we need to come back, Miller will be in, if we are holding onto a lead, Hill will play.

I am just excited to see what the Rondo-Jrue-Miller/Etwaun-Solo-AD small ball lineups can do if Solo is back to form defensively.

He isnt even starting with Hill not being here right now... Hill will start when he gets back. No doubt.


As far as being a finisher at the end of a game, it will be whoever is hot.

The lineup of Rondo/Holiday/Hill/Davis/Cousins is going to be deadly when he gets healthy. Hopefully it happens soon.
