What to do with Ariza/Webster?


Okay I'm certainly not in the camp in support of drafting Otto Porter, but I realize that he is likely the pick going forward. With that said, drafting him would create a potentially interesting situation at the SF position. Some have argued that at that point, let Webster walk and spend that MLE on a combo guard, or trade Ariza away, but I actually started thinking about another scenario, what if we kept all 3? This might not be ideal, but what about the idea of using Trevor Ariza and/or Martell Webster as a backup 2? I'm not necessarily able to pull up the advanced stats for when these two played the 2 or when they were on the court at the same time, but it seems to me, that they have the skill set to compliment each other and bolster our bench going forward with a combination of solid defense and 3 point shooting. With Ariza, you can still match him up against the best offensive player on the opposing team's bench. You could also have a small lineup where you could actually put Porter, Ariza and Webster in the same lineup to space the floor. No matter what, you could have some interesting combinations, which may have better results than simply getting rid of and trying to replace Ariza and Webster. With that said, if anyone has any advanced stats on how Ariza or Webster played the 2 offensively and defensively, I think that would help this discussion. Other than that, what are your thoughts on the possibility of having all 3 and using Ariza/Webster as the 2 off the bench with the other playing the 3?
