I wouldn’t worry about the defense. If you aren’t improving your defense by substituting Bamba for Robinson, you’ve done something dreadfully wrong. I think an aggressive zone running shooters off the 3 point line could work with Bamba in the middle cleaning up some mistakes. Man to man would be better too, even if Wagner has trouble on the perimeter.
The spacing on offense is obviously the problem. It is with some of lineups we’re using now too. The key for Bamba would be the ability to hit some open shots. I think he can do that. He looks fairly comfortable facing up I think he can set screens and roll to the basket. I think he can run and get open underneath sometimes. I don’t think you can ask him to handle the ball, so you definitely don’t want him clogging up the lane. He doesn’t really need to be a plus player on offense, just not a big liability.
Illustrates why 5* PGs are more valuable than the typical 5* center. The center will be gone after one year whether he has developed or not.
