Who is Keita beating out, though? I think he realizes he's not starting unless something dramatic happens. If he plays well, he's a two-year starter after that.


What do you envision the starting lineup being next year? If everyone is back, I don't see how it's not Ponds, Simon, Clark, Owens and Keita.

I agree, with Ahmed leaving either Dixon or Keita will start. One lineup could be the Tallest we've had in a while. The other would be extremely versatile by adding another ball handling guard in Dixon.

No one really mentioning Williams playing a key part in rotation. Visualize a Postell type of role

The one problem I don't image we will have is lack of available minutes.

I wouldn't be surprised if starting lineup is Ponds, Simon, Dixon, Owens & Clark with Keita first guy off the bench, but important thing is both Dixon & Keita should see major minutes.

Very hard to determine what the starting line up will be. One thing is for sure that it would be foolish for Clark and Owens not to be convinced they will have starter minutes next season as they would be eligible to transfer. Ponds and Simon will start so Mullin will decide whether to go small with Dixon and have Simon play a point forward or go big with Keita starting. Either way I see all 4 new comers getting at least 15 minutes per game. We are in a good situation going forward.
Keita, Roberts, Williams and Dixon > Ahmed and AA. Much greater imho.

Do we think Yakwe hangs around? Trimble in line for some minutes. Ideally would like to add one more Govan type size.

If they are all back the core four (Ponds,Simon,Clark and Owens would almost definitely start). We obviously have a rebounding deficiency and can use another shooter on the court as well. Like Redmannorth said we have to develop a nice rotation amongst Dixon, Keita, Williams, Roberts, Diakite and Trimble. We sill have two open scholarships(three if Yawke leads) and could certainly use another kid that could play next season. I wouldn't be against a strong transfer who could help us in two years but that can't be the first priority.
