Just curious, but why can’t DeJulius be a space the floor guy, whether it’s from the corner or up top? Walton did plenty of catch and shoot his freshman year, as did Nik, even though they could also do more (and did so more in later years).
As for backcourt minutes next year – 80 minutes for Simpson, Poole, Brooks, and DeJulius seems pretty workable. We’ll see about Brooks, but seems like he’ll get a big chance to prove he can shoot during games. And that’s not considering whether Matthews gets any minutes sliding down to the 2. If Nunez can play the 2 and earns minutes, great, but I’m not sure it would be out of necessity.
