I haven’t liked the Kings starting lineup(s) this season and would love to see them change to this type of a rotation:
- Starters: Tyreke + Garcia + Casspi + Greene + Dalembert
- Rotation: Udrih + Landry + Cousins
- Reserves: Head + Wright + J.Thompson + Whiteside
With Tyreke switching over to the two guard spot when Udrih enters the game similar to how they worked it last season. Greene possibly playing some SF minutes too.
I don’t like Carl Landry as a starter alongside Dalembert and Tyreke. I’d prefer to see him take a sixth man role and be the go-to scorer in the second unit like he was in Houston. Sacramento has struggled offensively to space to floor since Landry joined the team due to Tyreke’s flaws offensively and high need for improved spacing. They’d be better off with a stretch four type of presence to create extra space for Tyreke.
I also like that lineup’s ability to switch 1-4 while keeping Dalembert as it’s anchor at the rim. I think that would be an effective defensive lineup.
I think that type of lineup/rotation would give Sacramento their most cohesive lineups defensively and offensively while also being effective rebounding units.
