The New Orleans Hornets have some questions concerning rotations for their opening day lineup. Here is an interesting lineup to think about:
Coach Monty Williams is looking a for spot-up shooter at the SG position, so Peja would be a perfect fit for the position that has been his calling-card all his career. The rest of the starting lineup is basically what everyone else expects. This would be the backups for the Hornets:
Thornton could come off the bench and play about 30-35 minutes to help give the team a spark off the bench. Pondexter could run PG because he did a bit of that in college, and if he has trouble Thornton could run it because everyone saw him run it last year when Paul was hurt.
Alexander could be a good spark as well, playing about 10-12 minutes a game just to give Ariza a break. Then you would have two seven-footers guarding the rim, so there will be no easy baskets on them.
These lineup moves could help the Hornets be a very dynamic team this season.
