    Dante is the main backup PG along with DM and Ingles. Ingles comes off the bench. Green and Bogie start. O'neale gets minutes at 4 and 2, Mudiay spot minutes unless he really shows something. Goal is to have 1 or 2 of DM, Conley, and Ingles on the court at all the time. The rest depends on any other signings and which of the 2nd rounders make the team this year.

    Answer 1: I would be surprised if Joe started, I think we bring him off the bench for 28 MPG and token start Jeff Green.

    Answer 2: I'm sure Donovan will get minutes at PG but it looks like all signs point to Exum as the backup PG.

    Answer 3: I think you nailed it, I would expect Royce to get significant minutes this year at the wing. Exum can also play off the ball.

    Dudes, Exum had patella ligament surgery in spring, he most likely will not be ready to play in October. Thus Mudiay will be backup PG ( as it should anyway).

    This looks right, but I'll pencil in Oni and Brantley, even if they spend time in the G-league.

    According to Tony Jones in one of his most recent articles on The Athletic the Jazz have 3 options for the starting power forward that they are still considering:

    "How do the Jazz work in Green?

    There are two ways.

    One is to start him. He’s not expected to play closing minutes, but he can certainly be a starter for about 20 minutes a night. For comparison, Green played 27 minutes a game last season for the Wizards. Two years ago with the Cleveland Cavaliers, he played 23 minutes a night and was terrific in the postseason as the Cavs went to the NBA Finals. Green can play with the starters while Joe Ingles becomes a sixth man, which leads to Ingles and Bogdanovic playing together in closing lineups. The advantage to that? It puts a bit more athleticism on the floor with the starting unit and gives the Jazz a natural matchup when they face some of the more difficult forwards in the NBA.

    The second: Don’t start him. Bring him off the bench in the manner Quin Snyder did with Crowder, around the midway point of the first quarter, and then allow him to play with the second unit at the beginning of the second quarter. It keeps Ingles — whom the Jazz love — in the starting lineup, pushing Bogdanovic to power forward. It gives the Jazz a ton of shooting around Gobert, making any pick-and-roll he’s involved in theoretically difficult to guard. Snyder would need to stagger substitutions in order to prevent Bogdanovic or Ingles from wearing down, but Green’s presence certainly softens the defensive load.

    Orrrrrr … the Jazz could start Royce O’Neale at power forward, bringing Ingles and Green off the bench. Word around the franchise is O’Neale has been impressive in his summer work. He’s Utah’s best perimeter defender and has emerged as one of the better wing defenders in the league. O’Neale shot 38.6 percent from 3-point range last season and performed very well in the playoffs. He’s a guy the Jazz think can have a breakout year."

    I can't believe anyone thinks Georges Niang is a starter. Please explain yourselves.

    I struggle with him getting any minutes with this roster.

    I hope he proves me wrong.

    Green played some minutes as a small ball 5 with the Wiz. He can do the same for the Jazz.

    I'm not so sure about bringin another traditional 4. Ed Davis already can do that, and he's only to play about 14/16 min of backup center anyway

    Tony Jones reports that Exum is first guard off the bench, 1 or 2. He doesn't report stuff unless he knows it is true.

    It will be Exum/ Mitchell and Exum/ Connely with interchangeable guards. Exum will be more 1ish next to Mitchell and he will be more 2ish next to Connely. But position-less, ya know?

    I wonder how much load management the Jazz are preparing for our guys, especially Conley. Considering that they are thinking of not drying up Ingles legs (and fingers) already at the regular season, there may be some plan for one or other there.

    I think Conley, Gobert, and Ingles will definitely be managed.

    Probably true that for teams that go with two bigs we could use Davis and Gobert in some limited minutes... might get kinda rough but who knows.

    He’s a rotation piece for sure... 47/41 shooting splits... adequate rebounding... some ball handling and passing ability.

    He shot 41% on threes and puts a lot of them up. That’s valuable. Limited sample obviously and his defense is not great but he’s smart on that end and tries really hard... not like he’s Trey Lyles or Jabari.

    If Exum could stay healthy it would really help us manage Mike and Joe... when/if he gets hurt the. We get thin there... hopefully Mudiay is working his *** off to be ready... there will certainly be opportunity for him at some point.

    DM can play the point and frankly should do more of that. I still feel like that’s ultimately where he could and should end up.

    I don't mind O'Neale as a 5th starter. His improvement as a shooter has been pretty amazing. What I like about him is that he can play fast. That's something that Ingles struggles with.

    Right... it just creates potential holes elsewhere... depends on who else is healthy too. If it is just Exum out... then we can cover pretty easily. If he's out for like 40-50 games then we need to add someone that can play. Mudiay could be that guy.
