From what I’ve seen, Zak Irvin could do a lot more in high school than Nunez could.
I guess it depends how the roster shakes out, but I’d focus on getting guys like Iggy and Johns on the court for as many minutes as possible because they are more complete players.
If you are trying to get to your 7-8:
Simpson, Matthews, Poole, Livers, Teske, Castleton/Davis seem like good bets among the returning players and I don’t see how Johns/Brazdeikis don’t factor into that.
That’s already 8 and I think you have one more guard, preferably who can play some two, which is presumably either Brooks or DeJulius (or a grad transfer).
Basically it gets hard to find a role for Nunez on next year’s team just with how things will shake out. Because of that blob at the combo forward spot, I could see Matthews as a two getting a real look. Not sure if it’ll work, but it just makes sense.
