Report: Harrington as sixth man?

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2007/10/15/SPCJSQ8QA.DTL&type=sports

We've heard Nellie talk about Harrington as a sixth man before, and it really does make a lot of sense: he's a tweener that can play three positions (at least for Nellie), he can be a big time scorer, and Nellie can choose who to match him up against, rather than him going against the opposing PF by default. All well and good.

But who starts at PF? According to Janny:

If that happens, Nelson said that Matt Barnes, Mickael Pietrus and Austin Croshere were all candidates to start at power forward.

Do any of these guys make more sense as starters than Harrington? I always thought the move would be great if we had a solid role-playing PF that could rebound, play defense, and finish inside when asked to. Barnes and Pietrus rebound well for their position, but their position is not starting PF. Croshere... well, we'll let Sleepy speak on him.

Obviously both Barnes and Pietrus did an admirable job down the stretch and in the playoffs last year. Does that work in the regular season, when teams have all of that game tape to scout and find advantages? Does this suddenly put even more of an onus on Baron in the first quarter, without one of their top scorers on the court?
