Who Will Play and Where

I have been gathering as much info as I could find about our team . This is what I think we will see this year . The (5) Hammons has lost 30 plus pounds and worked with a trainer for most of the off season to increase his stamina . By all accounts he will get the most minutes . Simpson some have called the most impressive of all the Boilers . Including Issac Haas whom we were all but a lock to sign until he saw Jay play . Haas left from his visit with the reality that Hammons going pro was not the only obstacle for playing time . Travis Carrol his experience will get him minutes at the 4 & 5 . He will play the 4 when Jay plays the five . Basil yes he has been practicing at the (5) why IDK . The (4) now this is crowded and easy to see why a non motivated Hale left the team . Expect Peck to play the early minutes here . Carrol and Smotherman along with limited time from Ray . Also Kendall has logged some practice time learning the Position . The (3) look for Ray Davis to start here . Kendall by all accounts is just to good not to be on the court . While everyone has heard about his shot . He also has a 6'11 wing span that allows him to cheat off of his man and deflect passes into the paint . A coaches kid he understands the game well beyond his years . The (2) Terone will eat up all but a handful of minutes his leadership will be on the court . Expect Carter to play if teams go to a zone or sag off to help on Hammons . The (1) I expect Ronnie and Bryson to log about the same minutes here as Painter wants to keep fresh legs on the ball. Carter will also see sometime here much like Kendall his shot will be need on the court . This is how I see the preseason . We will need to get down to an 8 or 9 man rotation for league play . But for now to much talent is a good thing to have . My starter are Hammons , Peck, Davis and the Brothers . To start the season however I expect Ray to move to the 4 and Kendall to enter the starting rotation after a few games . What do you guys think . And where is Charles preseason poll thing ?
