With the draft coming, and all this hullabaloo over Evan Turner, I started to think about what type of player would be Tyreke's ideal back court teammate.
With these thoughts in mind, I came to the conclusion that Tyreke's ideal back court mate would be a young Shane Battier (shocking, I know). But because Geoff Petrie doesn't have a time machine - that we know of - who are some current players in this mold?
My list of potential puzzle pieces in order of ideal fit:
1. Courtney Lee -- He does everything I described, is a young gun only in his sophomore year, and plays with that wonderful intensity I mentioned.
2. Trevor Ariza -- Is a fantastic defender, an extremely capable catch and shoot player, and has a decent contract.
3. Eric Gordon -- I know this is getting a little too ideal now. Unquestionably the best player mentioned so far, but he doesn't have a big enough body to defend all those strong guards throughout the league (Kobe, Wade, Iggy, etc.)
As you can see, this is a rather short list as I'm having trouble finding the prototypical young Shane Battier type players. Which is why I want your help! Who are your choices for an ideal (but realistic) back court mate for our studly Tyreke Evans?
