After today's practice Kings coach Keith Smart said the starting lineup for tomorrow's preseason game against the Los Angeles Lakers in San Diego would not necessarily be the starting lineup for the season opener on Halloween in Chicago.
"Take with a grain of salt what I say right after a game," Smart said. "Because that was in the moment and the question was asked then. And we have five days before we have to make a decision to get ready for Chicago. We just want to make sure the guys that are playing do the right thing every single time they are on the floor."
So the starting five tomorrow might or might not be the starting five for the Bulls.
One thing Smart is certain he wants is more diversity on the floor at one time.
"I don't want to have this year too many guys that can score on the floor at the same time," Smart said. "Granted I'm going to need it at times but I don't want to have it too much. I wan to have the role guys in the lineup at any given time to be able to defend certain spots at certain times of the game."
