Good discussion. When you lay out the 17-18 roster, it really becomes stark how bare the 4 spot is.
On the bright side, if they can just land an impact 4 in this recruiting cycle, we're in reasonable shape elsewhere. Still would love to see (in addition to the 4) another 2017 freshman wing who can immediately push for minutes.
As mentioned in another thread, it's useful to try to project who will actually play in a real-world, 8-man rotation. It's one thing to look at a 13-man roster and say, hey, all the pieces are here, but you have to recognize that all those guys can't play at once (nor will all be ready at once)—and thus some of those players' attributes are illusory.
To that end, I'm starting to wonder where Watson fits in after this season. With X, Brooks, MAAR and Poole, you probably want Matthews at the 3, and of course you still have Robinson there. Of course, MAAR and Robinson are gone after 17-18, but there will also be a Jamal Cain-type to contend with.
