But they don't have a second point guard.
They need to be able to create opportunities on offense. They don't have the ability to defend two mobile guards on defense, and the young big guys don't have the patience necessary to run offense. This is essentially the same type of talent that Temple has been trying to make a living on for the last decade, except they aren't using a good offensive plan, and can't play quality zone defense.
