Though with Rivers as coach - probably won't happen
I really like Queen. Doc has to give him regular minutes as a backup 3. I'd play him over Korkmaz. I'm wondering if House makes Thybulle expendable.

Bassey and Reed should be main backups behind Embiid. Joe needs to be the backup 2. I'd love to see a push of the young players, I think they have the length and athleticism the team needs.
Won't Tucker be Embiid's back-up?

Tucker is 6-4.5, I sincerely hope Rivers isn't thinking of going with Tucker as a small ball 5. I could see him being Harris' backup 4 in a small ball with Reed at the 5. I can see Tucker maybe playing some 3-4 together with Harris. Not sure I see him behind Embiid, though.

I feel dumb, I was thinking he was taller - thanks for the correction

Nonsense. Not dumb at all. Tucker played small ball 5 with Houston, splitting time with Covington after they traded Capela. He regularly plays PF so it's within reason to think he's 6-8 with the way he rebounds. You're fine. Lol.

Really strong showing vs the Nuggets. Juat completely took them apart and didn't let them do anything offensively, 97-71.

Queen continues to impress, Riller ran the offense and shot well. They're getting stronger. Do wish BBall was playing. Foster is interesting.

Can't help but with Embiid was playing with all these young, athletic players and building the team that way.

Despite his poor 3pt shooting, Queen continues to do things that impress. If Riller makes the roster, he could provide some useful minutes as a backup, good ball skills, decent shot maker.

They lost this one because the Bulls played their good size, Bassey sat, Springer sat, so did Joe, so the 3 game struggled. Reed didn't play in Vegas.
