What do the Raptors have for pieces?
PG - drive and kick, slasher, decent 3pt shooter
SG - slasher, finisher at rim, good midrange game
SF - slasher, finisher at rim, decent 3pt shooter
PF - high post jump shot, hustle down low, screen and roll guy
C - low post developing, hustle guy, screen and roll guy
What kind of offence best fits?
Lots of ball & player movement, lots of screens
Billups - Lowry - Billups is a better shooter but Lowry is a better driver
Rip - Demar - both are great in the mid-range game, neither are great 3pt shooters (but Rip was better)
Prince - Gay - both are athletic slashers who can hit the outside shot
Sheed - Amir - both can hit the midrange jumper, while Sheed can step out further
Ben - JV - Wallace did nothing on offence except hustle for rebounds, so less pressure for JV but can throw in some sets for him
Our personnel fit. Demar is fantastic at hitting the midrange shot, so sending him around multiple screens from Amir, JV and Gay would get him very makable shots for him. Gay is much better than Prince offensively, but they have quite a few similarities. Amir has the 18 foot jump shot down and can be the stretch high post scorer like Sheed. JV is still developing, so why not give him an offence where he doesn't have to carry the load. Ben Wallace basically set screens, got out of the way, then crashed the glass. JV can do all that and more. It will give the team a chance to bring him along at whatever pace fits. Lowry and Billups have enough similarities for it to work.
Sending Lowry, Demar and Gay around multiple screens, with multiple hand-offs will get someone open and will look a lot nicer than the ISO heavy crap we saw down the stretch.
