    Rule: by combining, you take both original players out of their roster spots, so for instance you can’t have a Gobert/Mitchell while also having Gobert and Mitchell.

    I’d have to say Rubio/Korver (Rorver? Kicky?) as Ricky has the ball in his hands enough to make that more dangerous than a Favors/Korver. If I’m allotted a second one (in addition) I take Favors/Niang. Though a Jingles/Favors would be interesting because you move Crowder into the starting 5.

    This is interesting to think about. I might go Ingles and Exum. If you could combine Ingles basketball IQ, shooting, passing, and feel for the game with Exum's speed and athleticism you would have a star player.

    Favors/Niang is a terrible combo. A slower, less skilled version of Favors, who can shoot the 3 better. But I appreciate that you're trying to be creative.

    Rubio/Korver is a good one. It turns a below average starter into a top tier PG. And all you lose is Korver's 15 minute production, which is replaceable. That also makes Korver/anybody a great combo. For example, Exum/Korver. That's crazy.

    Royce and Korver. Imagine combining Korvers shooting and moving to get open with Royce speed and athleticism.

    Like I said, Korver/anybody. That's the easy answer.

    Let's see someone make the case for something more creative.

    Anyone down for a Bradley/Allen? Advantage is that you combine two roster-occupying spots for one and can go look at the buyout market.

    Bradley and Exum. That'd be a fast bust.

    How about Mitchell in Exum's dimensions? Not Exum's skills, or even body (Mr. Glass). Just his measurements. :p

    How about Gobert/Exum? Speed in transition, switchability, and throwing his own lobs.

    Well, I'd have to start with Cavanaugh and Mitrou-Long. I'd want to make sure this body combination technology works well.

    Quin + Korver = Quorver. His mean face will keep the defender far enough off to get open shots all night long.

    Seriously though, if you gave Mitchell Exum's top gear and first step, he would probably be one of the greatest to ever play. You would need almost three guys to defend him.
