Stroud will be the main big off the bench, he needs 20+ mpg to maintain his impact which at times was pretty big defensively and he showed good board work and a decent set of scoring tools inside.
Polynice, I hope he improves but even so he is a decent insurance policy if any big goes down or gets in foul trouble.
Stroud gave us some good minutes in BW play last year at PF so I'd rate him higher.
Our roster is now complete. That means its time to speculate on lineups and depth. Starting with each position, I will list players who will play multiple positions in more than one spot.
PG: Silva, Thompson, Tsohonis, Hart, Monson
SG: George, Tsohonis, Jones, Lewis
SF: Jones, George, Rotegaard, A Traore
PF: A. Traore, Polynice, Stroud, Rotegaard, Ngoyi
C: L. Traore, Stroud, Polynice, Ngoyi, Yan
Wings: George, Jones
PF: A Traore
C: Lassina Traore
Wings: Tsohonis, Rotegaard
I love the depth!
10 quality players who can give us great minutes without even mentioning Freshmen Hart(RS), Ngoyi (RS) and Lewis. I don't know how good they will be, but Lewis comes in as a 3 star recruit, and his HS numbers indicate he could be a factor too. Prior to hurting his knee, Ngoyi was described to me as the fastest player on the team. Not so sure about Hart, he wasn't ready last year, but his pedigree is amazing, look forward to seeing him on the court.
