As long as I have a SF and a C with good DEF on the court with him? I am leaning towards having him come off the bench because I agree that it will limit his role as a Rebounder. Plus he will ensure that we have good ball movement and scoring off the bench. Thanks for the input Trentonjoe.
Defensively, he's a negative. He'll get owned by any decent SF or PF. If you move him around and your opponent guess's wrong, you might be able to get away with starting him but it's a 50-50 gamble every game.
I would be most comfortable playing him at the 4 off the bench. That should limit his holes (REB,DEF) somewhat. I think he probably will be an efficient 3 point shooter as well from the 4.
Not even a little bit. Not only will he still get burned starting for a pressing team, he'll commit an enormous number of fouls. I'd put him as the first backup at the 3 and 4. If I did have to start him, I'd rather have him at SF than PF, but that's just me, and apparently nobody else who's responded to you feels the same way...
