Luke Walton will keep the same starting five tonight against the Clippers (Clarkson, Russell, Ingram, Randle, Zubac) but Mark Medina reports that he’s interested in starting Larry Nance Jr. at some point.
Interesting. Nance has actually been in the top-100 range in both eight and nine cat leagues thanks to his steady stream of steals with solid rebounding and percentages. A jump to the starting lineup would presumably let him loose a little bit, though it’s unlikely he’ll ever jump into mid-round value unless a few guys around him get hurt. It’ll also be fun to see who gets bumped out of the starting lineup – the team is committed to youth so it seems like Julius Randle might be the odd man out, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.
