Johnson is currently locked into the starting rotation, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN reports. "I doubt Joe will be coming off the bench this year," coach Lionel Hollins said. "I don't think we have anybody to put Joe in a position where he'll have to come off the bench. But if that should happen, we'll talk about it and deal with it, but I envision him being a starter."
Jack has the inside track for the starting point guard role, according to coach Lionel Hollins, Mike Mazzeo of ESPN reports. "Why can't he [handle the starting point guard role]," Hollins inquired. "He's done it last year, he's done it in Portland, he's done it in Golden State -- wherever he's been, he’s had moments where he’s had to start."
