I'd rather have Pressey.
so you are fine with staring the year with Rondo coming of an ACL and maybe not ready to start the year (at least not at 100%).
and an undrafted small PG, who has played adequately at best in the summer leagues?
then I guess you are cool with Bradley playing the most minutes at the point early. ( which could be what we end up with).
we could add a vet for the minimum on a one year deal if rondo isn't ready. assuming rondo isn't ready until after christmas, i'd like to see pressey and said unnamed vet split time. let bradley work at his actual position as we need to let him see if he can develop an offensive game to go with his defense.
rondo may still be traded, however, which would likely bring a PG back. so that's still a possibility.
Kinda what I said all along there I think.
we still need a BU Point at least until the next trade.
just a list of whats still out there, vet minimum is what we possible would be looking for at this point.
I think counting on Pressey to play 20 min a game as an undrafted ROOKIE is asking a lot (even for the WORST team in the league).
I've looked back for the past 4 years and have yet to find ANY undrafted rookies who've played that many minutes in the NBA their first year.
there were a couple Europeon players (all over 23YO)...but no rookies form the states.
maybe Pressey will be the first in a long time..but If I were GM I wouldn't be counting on it.
