I agree with many of your comments, 3ball. Some disagreements: 1) I don't see Hamilton as much of a 4. He's more of a 2/3 than a 3/4. But Barnes likes to get his "best players" on the court, even if it results in funky lineups, so maybe you're right. 2) Not really a disagreement, since I think there's a chance Pittman goes pro as well, but a counter. While I'm not sure James can improve his draft stock on next season's team, there's no doubt in my mind Pittman can. Pittman will be a late first rounder in this year's draft, whereas I think he has the potential to be a lottery pick next year. Maybe not, because I thought the same thing about James, and that didn't happen. But James problem in coming back is that Texas will have someone who can play the 3 better than he can, so he won't have the same opportunities for playing time there that he had this past season. Pittman, on the other hand, is undoubtedly going to be a primary option on offense when he's on the floor, and with the greater offensive talent surrounding him in Bradley, Hamilton, Williams, and Lucas, he's going to have a chance to make an even bigger impact. None of that means much, obviously, other than it's my opinion. We'll see how it all works out.
