Grant and the second unit

It's really too early to make conclusions. However, it seems like the Suns bench may have offensive issues. Telfair may have a stabilizing effect - when given a real chance. He hasn't shown it on a consistent basis thus far in his career, and Price is a better defender than most guys wearing purple and orange, anyway. So, should Grant Hill see more action with the reserves to supply some point forward and veteran leadership?



I'm not suggesting Grant be taken out of the starting lineup or crunch time scenarios, either. He can be taken out eight minutes into the first quarter and brought back in to start the second. Then play the first five and last three minutes of the second quarter -something like that.

That added ability to create some offense - and move the ball more effectively - should help offensive production of a second unit which already seems to be solid defensively. However, the question then becomes, who replaces Hill with the starters? Shannon Brown? Chilldress? Warrick? That's another answer I don't have - but I guess the opponent could help dictate the choice, occasionally.

The bench, in my opinion, is going to need a stabilizing prescence if Telfair is not going to be a facilitating point guard. Also, I love what Price brings to the defense - but his playmaking ability and scoring aren't going to scare anyone. Guys like Brown and Childress need someone else to help them get good looks. If needed, then I think the first tweak should be more minutes for Grant with the defensively potent second unit. This team needs production from all players. Go Suns.
