Matthews wanted the 3 for himself. Don’t mind seeing that.
One thing to keep in mind is that when Simpson goes out of the game, whoever replaces him will be alongside Poole and Matthews and/or Iggy and is not, in all likelihood, going to be the primary initiator of the offense. A bit like when Walton was the PG alongside LeVert, Stauskas, and Robinson. Brooks is just fine playing 15-18 minutes a game, taking open 3s moving the ball, playing solid D. But sure, it would be nice if DeJulius could be ready to outplay Brooks at the backup 1.
Johns is really the guy I’d love to see be able to play. Not just because it’d be another small ball option, but then you’d have the option of playing some big small-ball, with Iggy at the 2, Livers and Johns at the 4-5.
