I don't get the Metta situation either, but at least Earl Clark was brought in to fill the small forward spot. Why did they buy out Beno Udrih and sign Shannon Brown? The starting five has three guards, and only Prigioni brings the passing the team needs (J.R. might be a better PG than Felton now), and two shooting guards coming off the bench.
I'm fine with small ball, but this team is not assembled well enough and the players don't have enough time to gel. Last season the team had the pieces to win a lot of games with that stategy (not using the big men to it's fullest potential was maddening), and also there's no Kidd to lead the team. If Murry and Brown gets minutes, we could be seeing six guards play.
I'll be rooting for Brown to play well, but he's not a PG, so what was the point of buying out Beno?
Another mystery of the bad coach and bad owner.
