I feel like this is a race that will be all over the place and ideally resolved by the UNC game, but it was worth a thread because right now (incredibly early) it looks like a 5-way race for 10-15 minutes a night behind the starters.
Wayne takeways are:
-Jones and Brooks are going to play closer to 70 minutes than 60 in big games, at least early on. Jones looked as good as his incredible advanced stats suggested and Brooks we know will hit 3s and play very, very good defence.
-Nunez was the first guard off the bench against Wayne, can hit a 3 but still doesn’t look like the 40% shooter he probably has to be considering his lack of upside and struggles defensively
-Collins and Zeb out, but probably stock went up slightly because others struggled
-Bufkin looked his very young age in his debut, got minutes at both spots and the 3
-Barnes looked pretty good, would give us length and a passable shooter at the 2 and so might actually be in the conversation here with Brooks sliding to the 1 for 5-7 minutest that Jones sits, which I don’t think anyone here expected, and likely not getting minutes at the 3 with Terrence Williams looking a little slimmer and comfortable shooting it, which is really all he needs to backup Houstan for 10 minutes a night
