Clippers May Go With Five Guard Rotation
With (Maurice) Williams back, Clippers Coach Vinny Del Negro now has a deep backcourt.
It’s a given that Chris Paul and Randy Foye will start.
But now Williams wants playing time as the first guard off the bench. Then there is Nick Young, the biggest of all the guards at 6 feet 7, and second-year guard Eric Bledsoe, who has become the energizer and defender for the Clippers.
How does Del Negro plan to rotate five guards?
“They all better play well,” Del Negro said. “Whoever is playing well will be out there. So they better play hard and execute. And it’s about winning. We’ll make it work somehow.”
