Better backups?

Here’s a look at some of the players vying for playing time with the second unit:

 

Kris Dunn: Rookie guard has done a good job of pushing the tempo.

Nemanja Bjelica: His ability to both pass over people and shoot are a plus.

Brandon Rush: Strong three-point shooting skills space the floor.

Cole Aldrich: Effective at protecting the rim and sets solid screens.

Shabazz Muhammad: Versatile scorer will benefit from the space Bjelica and Rush create.

Tyus Jones: Second-year guard could play some point with Dunn at off-guard.
