How about the Suns?

The Rockets 2nd unit looks great. I think the Rockets is a contender because of its depth (if Yao is healthy entire year).

The Suns has a decent 2nd unit, too.

Dragic
Childress (assume JRich and GHill start)
Dudley / Turkoglu (if he doesn't start at PF)
Warrick / Clark
Frye

SF Stevenson
SG Terry / Jones

any

any unit w/ Ajinca in it should be disqualified from discussion. This guy is literally stealing money from the NBA.

Suns

PG Dragic
SG Childress
SF Dudley
PF Warrick
C Frye

Especially considering how much these guys pride themselves on being the 2nd unit. I think that makes a big difference. I was extremely impressed with the suns 2nd unit last year, and I feel that they just got better... If these guys can hold the same mindset, I can see them winning a lot of games at the start of the 4th quarter when these guys come in and give 110% effort

It's tough to say, most of

It's tough to say, most of the time, there will always be a starter on the floor with the back up units. a lot of decent benches have come together this off season. It will be a fun season to watch...

Would Evans be considered 2nd

Would Evans be considered 2nd unit if he backs up Udrih but starts at SG? He's really the only other player that can play point for them besides Udrih. If so, I'd say they have one of the best 2nd units

Evans
Garcia
Greene
Thompson/Landry
Cousins

symbol- Mav's have a sick

symbol- Mav's have a sick backup situation at the guard spots and at center, but Stevenson and Ajinca negate an overall unit.

The Kings 2nd unit would be

The Kings 2nd unit would be better with a proven PG in it. Evans would not be considered part of it because he starts with the 1st unit. The 2nd unit for the Kings looks something like this:

PG: Pooh Jeter
SG: Francisco Garcia
SF: Casspi / Donte Greene
PF: Jason Thompson / Landry
C: Cousins

The SF and PF positions depend on who starts for Westphal but I think either way it is pretty solid.

Yeah I didn't know cuz technically Evans is the backup for Udrih but he starts so it kinda goes both ways
