Aaron Gray, Quincey Pondexter, and Jason Smith trying to guard LeBron James. Guess how that turned out?

We were noticing during the game thread yesterday that the second unit doesn't seem to play well as a team on offense – you see random players trying to drive off of a dead ball, and there's not much movement without the ball. The shot selection really decreases when they get on the floor.

How do you think the Hornets can fix this? Do you like certain combinations of players off the bench? Would Monty working harder to keep at least one or two starters in at all times help the offense or hurt it? Should the rotations change some? Are there players you'd like to see more or less of?

Let's kick around the problem in the comments. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that ppelico wants to see more Aaron Gray.
