Point guard or big

Assume MU has one scholarship.   Do you want a PG or size?

Tyler came in as a shooting guard. They'll get great guard play with what we return. Shooting and size are the priorities.

Kam, Tre & eventually Sean have the point covered.  We need shooting, size and rebounding.

It’s true that Kam “can” run the point, but I think he’s better suited for playing off the ball.

I think it comes down to who is available at PG or C and whether the staff feels Al or Caedan are ready to be solid back ups.

2023-24 was an anomaly with 2 bigs really dominating the CBB scene, plus another couple who got a lot of press like Dickinson.  Normally in CBB, guards win championships.  You need bigs who can play good D and block a few shots and get out of the way when required.  Probably MU has those, as well as 15 fouls worth of bigs.  A nice combo guard who can shoot and plays point for 10 minutes per game would be great.

I dont care if its a PG or a wing, but id love to add someone who can shoot and create a good shot when things break down on offense.  Im totally comfortable with Kam running the point but I dont want him to be the only guy we can rely on to create something when the offense breaks down.

Im confident we'll get 40 mins of solid play at the 5 from some combo of the four centers we will have on the roster next year.

Do we have enough rebounding?

It's always been a bit of a weakness, true.   Didn't we dominate the glass back in the day?

Big or shooter, preferably someone who can shoot off the dribble.

My instinct is guard.   Sean likely won't be at 100% this season.   Stevie and Kam are definitely gone this time next year.  The injuries last season made me want guard depth.  It is easier to play small than it is to play without guards.

But to me, it is like 51-49.  I am not dug into this opinion.

I thought Oso when I first saw this subject. 

That being said I choose Big — would free up more time and energy for Jop and Gold to drain threes.

I'd like to see a 7-ft, 3-pt-marksman aircraft carrier who can run the point. In a blender, if possible.
