    I don't disagree, but with a guy like Hagans we have to realize he's younger, and is going to be going through the reclassification process and may take a little time to get his feet under him.

    With Montgomery, my thought was it'd be nice to have a big with scoring ability off the bench as opposed to Richards who is offensively limited at the moment.

    Agree, Cal is probably okay with that problem!

    I can't wait to watch their Bahama games. Pretty pumped it worked out that this was the year they had them.

    Wish him well. Hope it all works out
    Spot on, thatís when I posted he had no choice to play after a HOF coach calls you out.

    I hope he goes on to do well but chances are he will be forgotten in Lexington quickly.

    With on line classes he can still get his degree

    First time I'm listening to KSR in about a month plus and Matt Jones seems to agree with you.

    Richards

    That gives you Hagans, Herro, Quickley, Baker, and Montgomery off the bench.

    Depth, talent, experience....I like it.
    1 guard in the starting lineup?

    Yeah, although I think KJ is more of a 2/3 combo. I think next year will be unique in the sense that there will be times where they have just 1 guard on the floor, and others where they have 5 on the floor at once.

    Lots of depth, lots of options, lots of guys that are the "position-less" players.

    I don't see Richards starting but maybe he gets light years better.

    He should be a lot better than last year. The problem for him is the talent around him in the front court also will be better.

    I was really really close to going down there for that. Unfortunately we are on a single income until December. So I'm going to have to wait another few years before I get to make that trip.

    That was my thought this morning, is Richards next to get displaced or will he be on this team next year?

    He will be on the team next year. He's their only possible rim protector. I think we'll see some improvement from him in his 2nd season.

    No way Richards starts if Reid comes. Quickly will start over Green he’s just better. Hagans gets reclassified he starts at 2.
    1. Quickly
    2. Hagans
    3. Keldon Johnson
    4. PJ
    5. Reid
    I could see montgomery starting as well at some point
