Stat Pack: Belinelli and Ariza - Hornets247.com

There is one under-rated possibility for this trade. Trevor Ariza is actually a very versatile player - and capable of playing either wing position, or even was used in Houston at times to bring up the ball. The Hornets may not have selected Ariza with the intent of starting him at Small Forward. if they start him next to Peja Stojakovic, that allows them to use Marcus Thornton as an explosive scorer off the bench, give Pondexter more time at the three, and then use Belinelli, who really is a fourth guard who should only get 10 minutes per game or so, in the role best suited for him. I'm thinking of a rotation like this:

PG: Paul(38 min)/Thornton(10 min)/Belinelli
SG: Ariza(18 Min)/Thornton(20 Min)/Belinelli(10 Min)
SF: Peja(20 Min)/Ariza(16 min)/Pondexter(12 Min)
PF: West(36 Min)/Brackins or Songaila(12 Min)
C: Okafor(32 Min)/Gray(10 Min)/Songaila(6 Min)
