A few notes on your line-ups.
According to the latest reports, AB won't be able to play until some time in December. So, starting SG will be (most probably) CL. I don't know what happens when AB comes back, gets rid of all rust and gets to the level he was at the last season before the injury: if he starts or CL remains the starter.
KG, most probably, will be on the same or similar schedule as he was last season. So, I don't think he'll play much with the 2nd unit.
PP will start. He still can perform at that level.
As for JG, he's going to be PP's sub so he'll see some time on the 1st unit at 3 and 4 but mostly be on the 2nd unit.
I'd say KD and JT will share PG duties when RR takes a breather. Also, JT will play in the 1st unit when Doc goes small, e.g. RR, JT, CL, PP and KG.
In any case, I believe that regardless of "Celtics are now Rondo's team" Doc will find the most efficient combinations. He has the luxury of camp and pre-season (vs last year) and the luxury of having a very powerfull back-court.
