Doc Rivers will try starting Jared Sullinger a couple of games

In a move that is simultaneously surprising and not surprising at all, Doc is going to experiment with Jared Sullinger in the starting lineup during the preseason. Darko too.

"I’m going to try (Sullinger) a couple of games, and then I’ll throw Brandon in and then I’ll put Darko (Milicic) in a couple of times," Rivers said following the team's workout Wednesday. "You can read into it whatever you want. But there’s been no decision made on anything."

Interesting. I like that Doc is being flexible and experimenting when the games don't matter. It takes a while to see what you have and how the pieces fit together.
