Sg is a mess and I blame TB

PG position is solid with MW4 ( although he has no real back up)

SF with Schwartz and Daniels spelling has been all right. Daniels allows them to play smaller with a better shooter when Schwartz isnt in the game

PF Bey with some Siewert has been pretty solid.

C Battey is good, Siewert is good on O but bad on D. Walton is trying but just has no lift or lateral quickness so I dont see him playing much.

SG So Tad decided the best way to rotate the SG position is to start Parquet then pull him 4 minutes into the half and not play him anymore while giving the rest of the minutes to Kountz and Gatling where if they make a mistake he pulls them and puts the other one in in his little yoyo rotation method
That is just horrible for their confidence. He should have told either Kountz or Gatling that they will be MW4s back up at the pg and to expect 10 minutes a game there and maybe a situational stint at the SG every now and then. He should then pick a starter from the other two and then give the starter and the backup expected minutes (barring foul trouble) where they have an idea how much they will play, regardless of how they are playing. Show them that he trusts them and they will play better. Right now all three are playing like they are afraid
