Consider an opposing team's options once the ball is fed inside [to Sullinger]: 1) Double-down off of Diebler, who (according to Synergy scouting data) scores at a 1.53 points-per-possession clip in unguarded catch-and-shoot situations. 2) Double-down off of Lighty, who scores 1.26 PPP in unguarded catch-and-shoot situations. 3) Run Lauderdale's man across the lane to seal off Sullinger's left shoulder ... leaving Lauderdale, a 1.70 PPP scorer at point-blank range, wide open. 4) Cover Sullinger one-on-one in the post, where he scores 1.12 PPP. Unless your defense can recover in time not to leave Sullinger's teammates open after a double-team, the most efficient choice might just be to single-cover him in the post. When that's your best available option, you're not in great shape...
