Ron is not going to start at PF, they are just giving him a look there. I doubt he plays the 4 more then a few times during the whole year. JO will start at 4,Ron will start at the 3.

Why did you link back to this thread?

To the O.P. Aretest will not be the starting PF, I can see him playing some minutes there while JO is in the 5 or resting, with granger Jax or JJ in the 3, depends on who we have and how they are doing. I think Rick wants to be able to mix things up with a small fast hard hitting line up to sub in to try and make things happen. Looks like a good move to me.

At best......if ( and when ) Croshere is let go......Artest will likely play some very small # of minutes as a backup PF IF we play a team with a smaller frontcourt. But I would expect that we have a 2 headed Center with any combo of Foster/Pollard/Hulk/DD ( if he is still with us ) before going to Artest ( unless he really works out there like how Marion can play some backup PF minutes if needed ).
