Help! Can someone explain Blake/Miller/Roy?



Ok, i've seen a few fanposts that touch on the Blake/Miller/Roy starting lineup, but i still just don't get it.  Why start Blake over Rudy or Martel, both of whom seem better suited for the role?  Rudy can shoot, moves well without the ball, is a great passer... ok, he's not a great defender but neither is blake.  And Rudy seems to be lost, what better way to show confidence in him than start him?  Martel has looked good this year too. 

I don't get the "showcasing blake for a trade" (how does making him a shooting guard do that?) or "preparing for Andre to take over the starting spot".  How does playing both players help that?

Can someone present a compelling argument or at least spell out the theories with pros/cons as to why we've moved to this lineup?  It seems like a gimmick, an act of desperation by a coach who has run out of answers.  And if this lineup isn't the answer long term, is the answer a new coach (who can find a long term solution)?

Help me understand!?
