KP, O'Quinn, Kanter, and Willy will occupy the PF and C positions. McDermott, Hardaway, Lee, and Thomas (for defense) will occupy the wings. The PG will be a mixed bag of Ntilikina, Sessions, and maybe Baker squeezing in minutes as both guard positions. I don't see Beasley starting out the season as a consistent rotation player. Not sure who he beats out, but obviously things change.

You forgot Kuz

No i didn't. I don't see where he fits either, assuming you are only playing 10/11 players in a rotation.

I really like the intensity Lee and the French prince bring.

your kidding right?, we got 10 guys that are really really bad defenders, including KP..

This whole KP is a bad defender thing is really old. Most metrics show he's a good defender. Obviously makes mistakes, but still a plus defender.

Plus this is not a strong Defensive roster but they can put some good defenders on the floor. This preseason Jeff is trying out all kinds of combos. That's going to mess up your defensive chemistry.

The Nets are using small ball Spread Offense on the Knicks in the 3rd. This is something the Knicks will have to learn how to deal with. They keep catching the Knicks chasing the ball after a drive n kick.

I have not seen a Knick's point guard overwhelm someone on defense, force a turnover and take it coast to coast in a VERY LOOOONG TIME!!

I like how the Nets have to rely more on the secondary ball handler to get into their sets. Frenchie is almost like a shutdown d-back who discourage plays on his side of the field.
