I disagree that a 20 ft jumper isn't a good shot to take. It's a perfect shot for Brook to take because it put so much pressure on opposing bigs in that he is nimble enough to drive by defenders one dribble.
Moving Brook out to the 3 point line takes away that ability and also moves him further from the paint which is where he's most effective.
I understand where you're coming from as far as long 2 pointers being the least efficient shot in basketball but I don't think it applies to Lopez's circumstances or skill set. Now Marshon Brooks on the other hand...
