Other changes could be in store. English could find a way back into the playing group at shooting guard if Stuckey is going to spend more time at point guard. Frank talked about Jerebko or Daye as possibilities for backup minutes behind Prince.
“Anything is on the table,” he said. “Foul trouble, or someone is underperforming. It’s trying to figure out which pieces fit on that night. As long as you’re giving maximum effort, it starts there. Usually you can work things out when you’re playing hard.”
A couple of those moves — finding minutes for the cult of personality that is Kim English and (finally) letting Jonas Jerebko play some small forward — would be incredibly popular moves among fans who have been anxious for both for quite some time now. Austin Daye finding his way into the rotation would probably be less popular, but honestly, as much as Daye has struggled, this team has been way too bad for Daye to not get one last chance at earning a consistent role on the team.
