People keep trying to slate monk as a pg. I am glad he played sg in summer league AND Graham was responsible for bringing the ball up. If you want monk to shine, play him off ball as a secondary ball handler.
Agreed. I think Monk is much better suited for the role you described here. He can make really good decisions with the ball and find people. He just doesn’t need to be handling the traditional PG duties. Just doesn't serve him or the team well.
It’s also something that makes me happy with Mitch & Coach JB; they see this and correct it. I think is one of the larger failings of the last regime here - incorrectly identifying where to play players. Monk is best suited at the 2, Batum the 3, and Cody the 5 (it took them a while & Big Al injury to figure that out). Arguably, MKG could be better at the 4 and Frank at the 5. Glad to see them slotting people in more natural, productive spots on the floor.
