From all accounts, Sheldon Jeter has looked most impressive out of all of the Panthers competing in the league. So far, he hasn't been showing no rust after sitting out a year, according to some:

Joe Uchebo looked stellar but what you do not see in the stat lines is the competition that he goes up against, he is one of the tallest in the league and therefore has a significant advantage when jostling for rebounds. While I agree that Derrick Randall remains the Panthers' best option at center, with his indefinite suspension, it is hard to say when he will play.

Given Jeter's apparent rebounding prowess, it is entirely possible that Jamie Dixon could deploy a starting five of James Robinson, Cameron Wright, Sheldon Jeter, Jamel Artis and Michael Young. Not ideal, but it could prove to be spread the offense out tremendously.

James Robinson has only played one game and looked rusty in it. It goes without saying that he needs to drastically improve his shooting touch in order for this Panthers team to take the ever important next step. His "back-up", Josh Newkirk, has tortured defenders in the pro-am averaging 28.5 ppg. He could be a valuable asset in the Panthers offense coming off of the bench next season.
