They can play alongside each other though. Both are very versatile.

Two 6'6", 240-255 guys with guard skills.

Just put them both on the court and let them play (bully ball, basically). Can even have some lineups where they're both playing with Cartier or Moors, for example.

But you can frequently have one at the 4 and one at the 5. Roddy played 31% of our minutes at center last year, and Earlington played 21% of SD's minutes there.

We played a lot of small-ball lineups that featured John Tonje or Isaiah Rivera at the 4 (they accounted for 31% of our power forward minutes), and they're closer to even shooting guards than power forwards in reality.

Additionally, if Roddy returns and you add a player like Earlington, this is going to be a top 15-25 team in the country on paper entering the season and with a higher ceiling than 2021-22 (in which we were a 6-seed).

This is going to be a very appealing destination to any player that has one year left, as it was for Chandler Jacobs (who decommitted from Texas Tech) and now Josiah Strong (who chose CSU over Oklahoma, Wake Forest, California, and Minnesota). They're going to tell themselves that they have a chance at a deep run and something special- and the chance to still get a lot of attention for a pro career in some capacity.

Question, is one of the players from USD? ** -- plainsram 05/13/2022 06:57AM
  Earlington (with Roddy) would be a tremendous pick-up. -- PikesPeakRam 05/13/2022 09:58AM

  That's my guess too.. -- RambleOn 05/13/2022 1:21PM
  Roddy's ideal position for NBA is a 3. -- Ramenity 05/14/2022 1:48PM
  I'm sure they could play together... -- RambleOn 05/13/2022 4:24PM
  Or so we hope. ** -- Headbutt  05/13/2022 4:03PM
