[...] Starting on the wings are Lithuanian veteran Rimuntas Kaukenas and Indiana State product David Moss. Both joined the team over the summer as the team completely rebuilt its wing positions due to budget cuts, and both contribute on both ends. Kaukenas has the strong mid-range game, the ability to get to the basket around curls, the finishing ability and the tough defense; Moss is the better athlete and rebounder with a purer three point stroke. Both are undersized for their position, but they're scorers, finishers, playmakers and disruptive defenders. There is also former Spurs draft pick Malik Hairston in the mix, who missed the first part of the season with back problems, but who has ramped up production throughout the season and become a key bench contributor. Hairston contributes his usual all-around game - no one outstanding facet, but good defensive effort and versatility, some athleticism, an outside shot and post-up play, able to play a complimentary role to whichever combination of players he takes the court with. Young Italian guard Pietro Aradori also has a role to play in the backcourt as predominantly a shooting specialist, as does elder statesman Marco Carrareto, playing in much the same role.
