New Suns general manager Ryan McDonough recently met with SBNation.com and reiterated that the team plans to play both Bledsoe and Dragic on the court at the same time:
“I see him as a basketball player,” McDonough said during an extended sit-down interview at the end of the NBA Summer League. “I try not to differentiate (positions). That’s one of the things we had success with in Boston on a limited basis with Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley. I’m hoping to see some of the same stuff with Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. If guys are both tough and aggressive and can pass and shoot well, that leads to a lot of good things.”
So what’s the concern playing the two together? Size. Bledsoe is the smaller of the two at 6’1 while Dragic towers over him at 6’3 – an incredibly small backcourt.
However, despite their lack of height, both are speedy players who should be able to use their quickness advantage against bulkier competition.
