The addition of small forward Andre Iguodala to the Golden State Warriors has been one of the most noteworthy free-agent signings of the past month. Iguodala a lockdown defender and wing scorer allows the Dubs to experiment with countless more lineups than they otherwise would have been able to try if they didn’t pick up Iguodala.

One of the possible decisions head coach Mark Jackson and his staff must make is whether they should consider using David Lee as the sixth man off the bench. Hypothetically if Lee comes off the bench next season then Stephen Curry Klay Thompson Harrison Barnes Iguodala and Andrew Bogut would be the starting five.

But for the Dubs to be successful next season Lee should start over Barnes. Last season the Warriors were plus-2.3 with Lee on the floor. With Lee of the floor in about 12 minutes per game they were minus-1.3.

In Warriors wins when they scored between 70-79 points Lee was plus-24.0. Whereas in up-tempo offense-dominant games where the Dubs won by scoring more than 100 points Lee was less effective being only plus-6.5 while on the floor.
