San Antonio’s new starting lineup with Patty Mills replacing Danny Green at shooting guard is something the team “is likely to continue to examine over the next few weeks.”
The Spurs felt that their starting five needed an offensive boost while Green’s perimeter defense patches a hole in the second unit. Whatever the configuration, Green still figures to see plenty of minutes and remains fairly upbeat about the quote-unquote demotion. “I’m going to take it in a positive light. I’m going to come in and do my job and try to bring energy and try to win games.” He remains a viable fantasy asset given his prolific output of threes, steals and blocks. Mills is more of a 3-point specialist but deserves a little longer look now that he’s starting.
