I am not going to include Corey Maggette because, obviously, he will get the most. I am talking about the other guys coming in.

I think Williams will. We really dont have a true point guard, so Williams will get that role by default.

Toss up between Turiaf, Williams, and Randolph.

I hope its Randolph..............but it probably wont be.

Williams, even though he is the only real PG on the team, Im not sure how many minutes he can squeeze out of Monta directly at the PG spot, then out of Mags and S-Jax if Monta is on the floor aswell............would make sense for him to get the most minutes.

But I think it will be Turiaf, by a very small fraction over Williams...........simply because we need that banging, rugged, defensive guy so badly, and Im sure Nellie will give Monta and S-Jax the primary ball handling duties, so would rather have Turiaf patrolling the inside more often than Williams running point.

Something like =

Turiaf = 20.2 minutes.
Williams = 18.7 minutes.
Randolph = 16.4 minutes.

Turiaf will get the most as not only will he play backup center, he will get a lot of minutes at power forward, especially if Al is not playing well.

Turiaf will get the most because he is the most proven player. He has no question mark behind his talent and effort, unlike the others.

I'd like to say Turiaf because he deserves it but I'm guessing nellie caps him off at 15 minutes for being over 6'8.

It'll be Marcus Williams, logging 25 minutes a game with 15 of those playing PF.

My hope is that Marcus Williams thrives in Nellie's system and can be the starting PG which would allow Monta to play his natural SG position.

I would like to see Jax be our 6th man and come in and sub at either 2 (for Monta) or 3 (for Maggette) depending on the matchups and flow of the game.

I don't expect too much playing time for Randolph but I think he should get some PT along with the other young guys. We dont want another POB.

I agree though that Turiaf will get the most minutes among the others in the poll.

Williams ends up being the pg. Ellis is better at 2.

Just hope Nelson uses everyone so they can run all year.

I dont know if Williams has played enough to take over the starting spot at point guard, this move might also insult Jackson but if he is playing well enough, which he hopefully does, than I hope Nelson moves him to the starting spot. Not sure its gonna happen tho.

If Turiaf stays healthy, I can see Nelson playing him over 25mins a game. He is probably the strongest guy on the team and also probably close to the best defender, especially inside. He is deserving of the minutes as he tries real hard.

Found some footage on Anthony Randolph and the guy looks real, real nice, to say the least. Very fluid moving on the court and so tall for a player with those skills. Really would be a dream for him and BWright to be significant players for the team in two years, staying and forming one of the most athletic and skilled SF/PF duos in the nba. They both need to weigh at least 230 pounds though so it will take at least one or two years of good work for those two to get there. Not much court time for either this season likely
