Draymond Green is gone, but there are many Michigan State players who can fill his shoes. Tom Izzo has a team that is deep, talented and experienced. Every player will be given the chance to "step up."
It won't be just starters. The depth that Izzo will appropriate throughout the regular season will give each player the same opportunity to impress.
Who will take advantage?
Who will play a larger role for the Spartans next year?
These are my top three candidates for larger roles for Coach Izzo next season. They'll be seeing more playing time in 2012-13 compared to last year, as well as increased responsibility on the court.
