Stretch 4's are good, especially back in the day when teams would play a 3-man front-court.
But I still see guys like Kay and Wesley as the archetypal NBL PF.
Brisbane have gone interesting, on the assumption that Braun is now going to be forced to play the 4. But he was signed when they thought Patterson wasn't returning, and besides still has a few inches on Tate.
Last season Wear seemed to prefer the stretch 4 role, and at times played more like a 3/4, but he at least had the size and strength of a true NBL PF.
I just assume Tate was either going to start at SF, and/or relieve Newley and allow him to slide to the 2 at times?
Who knows, maybe the new coach doesn't realise what a selfish soft___k Kickert has become? Only good for throwing elbows and starting brawls
