I actually think that Jorts would work great with the starting unit. He is a much, much better defender than Stat, probably as good a rebounder and maybe a more reliable jump shooter now.
I realize that there is no chance of Jorts being used as a starter this year, but I believe that he is the type of player who could work well at that spot in the future.
As for this year, I think we just have to hope that Stat improves. I remain hopeful that will happen.
