I'd say this small ball line up is the most viable line up of all the small ball line ups. Especially if it consists of Bogut.
That's a reach. I doubt Barnes can defend and rebound vs legitimate PF's. At the end of the day, he's still a SF trying to play PF. You put Lee on the block and you got multiple options. He can create for himself with a number of crafty post moves for a high percentage shot, or create for teammates. Can Barnes do that? Nope.
Well, that's the thing, even if he can't defend PF's, it's better defense than Lee.
