Most intriguing combinations

I've read at least one if not several articles discussing how the Pistons' players best match-up into combinations. I like shooting and floor spacing but I'm kind of a matrix kind of guy, and would like to categorize the skills of the players as many ways as possible, so here goes (5 is the best, 1 is the lowest ranking):

Player Catch/Shoot, 3 Pt Range, Drive Scoring, Play Creation, Passing, Rebounding, Pos Def, Multi-Def

Cunningham 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 3, 4, 4

Hayes 4, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 3

Lee 4, 4, 5, 4, 4, 2, 4, 1

Joseph 3, 3, 3, 5, 5, 3, 4, 2

F Jackson 5, 5, 3, 2, 3, 2, 3, 1

J Jackson 4, 4, 3, 1, 1, 3, 3, 2

Diallo 4, 4, 5, 3, 3, 5, 5, 5

McGruder 3, 3, 4, 3, 3, 3, 3, 2

Livers 5, 5, 3, 2, 3, 4, 4, 2

Bey 5, 5, 4, 3, 3, 4, 4, 2

Grant 4, 4, 5, 3, 4, 4, 4, 3

Lyles 4, 4, 3, 2, 2, 3, 3, 2

Olynyk 5, 5, 3, 3, 3, 4, 3, 3

Stewart 5, 4, 4, 3, 3, 5, 5, 4

Garza 5, 5, 4, 3, 3, 5, 3, 3

C Smith 4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 3, 3, 3

Pickett 4, 4, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 1

If my ratings are at all on-target, then these combinations would seem interesting:

Cunningham, F Jackson, Diallo, Bey, Stewart

Lee, Hayes, Grant, Olynyk, Garza (Lyles)

Joseph, J Jackson, Livers, C Smith, Pickett (McGruder)
