"Another guy who's very good on the defensive end, especially picking up guys full court,'' Scott said in explaining his decision. "He's a very good man-on-man defensive player, pretty good off the ball as well, one of our best communicators on the floor. I think that helps our guys on both ends of the floor. "Offensively, I'm not asking him to do anything he can't do. I know he can run the show. I know he can push the tempo. I know he makes good decisions. If he has open shots, I want him to take them with confidence. "The game plan doesn't necessarily change. We just try to do it a little bit better." Scott admitted he thought about starting reserve Daniel Gibson at shooting guard and moving rookie shooting guard Dion Waiters over to the point, but decided to keep both in their original roles.
He'll get first crack at the starting gig, so we'll see what he can do with it. Starting off against Jrue Holiday will be an interesting litmus test.
