Rarely does the stars-and-scrubs plan get deployed quite like this in professional leagues.
Most commonly used in fantasy sports, the thinking goes that you can conquer a distinct lack of quality and depth secondary players from top-loading a roster. Spend a great deal on a few men, then expect for mere competence around them.
Even the New Orleans Pelicans are now among the greatest examples of the strategy taking root in fact, because they’re surrounding Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday with almost nothing. Rajon Rondo stays a shell of his old self–a helpful shell, but a shell nonetheless–and also Solomon Hill’s torn hamstring could keep him out for up to eight weeks.
Who else is notable? Have a look at every other man under contract and see if it’s possible to determine the fifth-best healthy participant, assuming the aforementioned four are the top quartet: Alexis Ajinca, Omer Asik, Ian Clark, Jordan Crawford, Cheick Diallo, Frank Jackson, E’Twaun Moore and Quincy Pondexter.
It is probably either Clark or even Moore. And that’s a issue, especially when the two bigs are still trying to suss out chemistry.
