We now have a large void at a true quality SG (assuming Tyreke is NaPG). I started thinking about who would be a perfect complimentary player w/ Tyreke since obviously upper management and the coach felt Martin was not that guy. What about Stephan Curry???...he can obviously shoot the lights out, play without the ball, come off screens, and do pretty much everything else.
Obviously, there's no way GS is letting go of him, but if Tyreke is NaPG then it is going to be tough to pair someone nicely with him in the backcourt as a PG since he does need the ball in his hands to be effective. You would basically need another combo guard. For example, I don't believe Wall and Tyreke would work together at all...it's difficult to find many PGs that would mesh well w/ him at SG. Beno could be a great short term fit because he can play point but also shoot.
For this reason, I think you stick w/ Tyreke @ PG and find a spot up shooter (ala young Ray Allen) that doesn't also live and die by the drive, or need to drive to the hoop as a necessity of their game (like Martin). We eventually will need a classic, back to basics SG to pair with him....someone who can catch and shoot, or catch make a move and shoot. I really like Avery Bradley, the freshman of Texas and he might be a viable option in the draft if he comes out depending on where we're at.
Apologize for a bit of scrambling w/ the thoughts...if only Mitch Richmond were back in his prime. That would be some combo.
What do you guys think?
