Wesley Johnson: Alvin Gentry’s starting lineup gambles may have uncovered a decent New Orleans Pelicans rotation

When Wesley Johnson was acquired in the Alexis Ajinca dump, there were two schools of thought: he’s a serviceable yet unspectacular body that can give minutes at the three or four, or there was the, “he’s never going to play a meaningful minute — Dell just wants his salary for a bigger splash down the road” denomination.

As with all opposing schools of thought, the truth is likely somewhere in the middle — or in this case maybe all of the above.

Wes Johnson is 6'7", fairly athletic, can rebound at a decent clip, underrated shot blocker.
