Minutes and combinations on the floor next year

I was fiddling around with what the possible "principal" combinations are given all the minutes that "have" to be given out. (Not sure it's worthy of a post vs a comment in the "Starting 5")

Working on the assumption that the returning players will get ~the same number of minutes, impact freshmen (Trimble and Cek) will get 20 (probably more of a stretch with Cek, but there are plenty of minutes to go round in the front court, so it shouldn't matter...).

Back court:

Minutes:

  • Allen: 30
  • Trimble: 20 (with luck 25)
  • Wells: 30
  • Layman: 25 (+5 at PF - does anyone think he can play more at the 4?)
  • Wiley, Nickens: ???

This doesn't allow for that many combinations:

  • Trimble/Allen/Wells: 10
  • Trimble/Wells/Layman: 10
  • Allen/Wells/Layman: 10

and then a combination of 10 minutes of:

  • Transer PG or Trimble/Allen/Layman+Nickens
  • Allen/Wiley/Layman+Nickens

Front court:

Minutes:

  • Smo: 25
  • Mitchell: 20
  • Cekovsky: 20 (decent chance of less, in which case minutes go to Graham/Dodd)
  • Reed: 10 (some chance of less, in which case minutes go to Graham/Dodd)
  • Layman: 5 (+25 at SF)
  • Graham: 0
  • Dodd: 0

There are more combinations than for the front-court, maybe something like:

  • Smo/Mitchell: 10
  • Smo/Cekovsky: 10

and then lots of mini combos like:

  • Mitchell/Cekovsky (or is that the other way round?!): 5
  • Layman/Cekovsky: 5
  • Smo/Reed: 5
  • Mitchell/Reed: 5
