Doubt they will be playing at guard together but if so, who would the defense focus on and how could you contain both simultaneously. Practice thread confirmed that Hughes has been playing very well this summer and always is a handful for Tyus at practices. We are so loaded at guard it’s surreal

He’ll be playing the 3 and opposing teams will have even more trouble containing him, tyus and Frank all at the same time.

We're going to really benefit from having additional scoring options this year -- especially Carey and Hughes, both of whom can attack off the bounce and set teammates up.

I'd expect a much more diversified offensive attack next year, with the maturation of Brissett / Sidibe, better depth, more shooters, and improved inside scoring. It will be a welcome change after last season.

I do not want to see any more 3 against 5. Spread the ball around or change the lineup.
Well there’s three proven commodities in tb, FH and ob. One supposed phenom in EH. A potential scoring threat in jalen carey. Then there’s Marek and Sidibe who need to prove offensive consistency.

205, 205, 215, 210, 180 not too heavy
Very true but in the context of small ball where we would be up against 5'8" - 6'2" and a "big" in the 6'6"-6'7" range our small ball lineup would likely be very imposing - super fast and long and we'd likely have height advantage at almost every position if not all.
