Lineup and Advice

Your best bet is to pair Harden and Capela or Paul and Mitchell. It’s impossible to pair Harden and Paul without filling a roster spot with a guy who may not play and still hoping to get something at the other three spots. Jazz players are more likely to give you guaranteed value than the Houston role players because of their balanced system. A Houston role player will hit, but picking the right one is key.
