Help For The Bench- Ideas To Convert Players Into Sixth Man


I have been trying to think of some possible available players down the road that would help the Blazers.

1. Tyreke Evans

2. Brandon Jennings

3. Marcus Thornton

I have not applied the salary cap for these guys (someone else could provide comment on that issue). I know that Tyreke has been previously discussed; however, I feel like (if he were willing) in a different role he would succeed in a James Harden (OKC era) role and run rough-shot over second units as a ball handling gaurd. If Tyreke was paired with an cheap outside shooting point that can play off the ball (Beno Udrih or even Steve Blake) or possibly JJ Redick that might really work.

Brandon Jennings can flat out score and would be very versatile as a sixth man that could play with Lillard in the forth quarter with both taking turns playing off the ball.

Marcus Thornton seems like an ideal six man candidate conversion.

I think I like a JJ Redick combo with Tyreke the best. I like JJ and Jenning second. I don't know if any of this would be possible. Please share your thoughts on these players and possibly converting them into six man.
