He has alot of pressure on him to do those things. If he was just the 6th man or a backup, things would be so much easier his first season
I don't think he'll start, much less at the beginning of the season. Nellie will move S-Jax to SG and play someone else at SF. Or maybe Azu can be our starting SG... but not Marco. He'll come off the bench until he proves (in regular season games) that he's ready to start.
If Mullin and Nelson want to have Belinelli come off the bench, Barnes needs to be resigned as well as Pietrus or some other SG/SF because Azu is just not going to start, no way in the world and if SJackson goes to starting SG, someone has to start at SF and that means Barnes has to be resigned. Even then, there is noone to back up Barnes at SF, unless Pietrus is resigned or traded for someone else. As it stands, if Monta is traded in a deal for Garnett, Belinelli has to start at SG
