I started thinking that moving Stuckey to the bench would really make sense. He's faced migranes and had gone ice cold shooting, but was a versatile player that offered strong defense and the ability to play either guard role. And, of course I believed his shooting would or could come around some time too!
How about this lineup we have now, with Kyle Singler starting at shooting guard?! It's looking pretty good. He brings more size to the rotation, good hustle, good shot selection, and good court sense. It also alleviates the log jam at small forward although I still don't think Jonas Jerebko is getting enough minutes.
It seems that the energy Singler brings is a bit contagious too. Maxiell, Prince, and Knight all seem to be responding.
Perhaps the balanced attack of the second unit is another important feature that can't be overlooked. Besides Stuckey, Bynum, JJ, Drummond, and Maggette offer several options for scoring and rebounding. It definitely gives this group a lot more dimension.
I for one believe that this could be the key to a +30 win season. What do you think?
Should Stuckey be the Piston's 6th man?
Definitely looks like a winner (9 votes)
As long as Singler can keep shooting over 48% this makes sense (7 votes)
